Seven Best Picture Oscar nominees on Lincoln screens

28 January 2018

One of the most interesting aspects of this year's Oscar nominations is not the tally of which films have the most votes, but what those votes say about the changes undertaken in recent years to improve diversity within the Academy.

Fox Searchlight's "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri", a movie about an angry woman seeking justice for her daughter's murder that has dominated Hollywood's awards season, had seven nods, with Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell competing in the acting race.

Daniel Kaluuya YES! I have honestly never been this excited about a nomination before.

It will compete for best picture with eight other films - "Call Me By Your Name", "Darkest Hour", "Dunkirk".

"Darkest Hour", the Winston Churchill-centered political drama. Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out) and Denzel Washington (Roman J. Israel, Esq.) were nominated for Best Actor while Mary J. Blige (Mudbound) and Octavia Spencer (The Shape of Water) broke into the Best Supporting Actress races. Her morally gray performance in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri made that film as fantastic as it was. The Chilean film A Fantastic Woman, nominated for Best Foreign Language Film also features a leading transgender actress, Daniela Vega.

Del Toro's film narrowly missed out on tying with the previous nomination record of 14, obtained by the films All About Eve, Titanic and La La Land.

School board executive review requested
School sports unite our entire city and bind one generation of students to another in terms of tradition and common experience. Pat Skorkwosky retired in June, spent five years as the superintendent, and 30 years in the Clark County School District.

After two years of controversy over a largely white line-up, people of color also did well. Besides Gerwig's directing nod, Jordan Peele's nomination in the same category for the critically-lauded "Get Out" means he is only the fifth African-American ever nominated for a directing Oscar.

Suddenly the most good-'ol-boy category of them all is one of the most diverse.

According to the Academy's awards librarian, 40 women were nominated in competitive, non-acting categories this year, with an additional 10 nominated in the Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress categories.

Early Tuesday morning, Peele, 38, took to Twitter to share his excitement over his Oscar nominations for Get Out, three of those nominations are for Peele himself.

Steven Spielberg ("The Post") and Martin McDonagh ("Three Billboards") were both left out of the best director category, despite helming two of the most acclaimed movies of the year. If he wins, I'm curious if Plummer will thank Kevin Spacey, who he replaced in the film.

The films nominated for Best Picture this year tackle a surprising range of topics and give voices to many groups of often silent people.

IPL Auction 2018: Uncapped players steal the show
Stokes , who has been in the news for wrong reasons after his night brawl incident a few months ago, remains the star attraction. The Rajasthan Royals' winning bid was $200,000 less than the record price Rising Pune Supergiant paid for him last season.

Mudbound writer-director Dee Rees became the first black woman to be nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay.

Hollywood veteran Meryl Streep received her 21 sup st Oscars nomination for her role as Katharine Graham in "The Post". Margot Robbie, who I was anxious about when I first saw the I, Tonya trailer simply because I couldn't shake the Harley Quinn of it all, completely got rid of my worries and secured an Oscar nomination which is wild because Suicide Squad was not good.

Supporting Actress is close between Metcalf and Allison Janney's performance in 'I, Tonya, ' but might ultimately go to Janney for her hilariously terrifying overbearing performance as Tonya Harding's chain smoker mother.

The nine-time Grammy victor co-wrote Mighty River for the film, which is also recognised for its adapted screenplay.

Four months ago, James Franco was a shoo-in for a nomination, if not a win, for Best Lead Actor for his portrayal of Tommy Wiseau in "The Disaster Artist". This is her twenty-first nomination as an actor; the most for any performer ever.
