Oscar nominations 2018 Full List: This is the 90th Academy Awards nomination, which is being presented at the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater. The nominations will be in 24 categories ranging from best picture, best director, best actor, best actress, best original screenplay to best foreign language film amongst others. While this year’s Oscar race has been unusually wide-open, “The Shape of Water” has a chance to tie “All About Eve,” “Titanic” and “La La Land” with a record 14 nominations. It is going to be historic as for the first time an Indian female actor will announcing the nominee of one the 24 categories. Priyanka Chopra along with Rosario Dawson, Rebel Wilson and Michelle Rodriguez are coming together to make this grand announcement this year.

A lot of fans would be waiting for the best director too. “Lady Bird” filmmaker Greta Gerwig is expected to be just the fifth woman nominated in the category. The last time a female filmmaker was nominated in this category was ‘The Hurt Locker’ director Kathryn Bigelow in 2010. Meanwhile, ‘Mudbound’ cinematographer Rachel Morrison could also become the first woman ever nominated for best cinematography.

Scrutiny of both categories, especially best director, has heightened in an awards season that has coincided with the Me Too movement and the toppling of numerous prominent figures in the movie business. For the last two decades, Oscar nominations morning has often belonged to Harvey Weinstein, the now disgraced movie mogul whose promotion strategies have influenced a generation of best picture campaigns.


For Best Pictures, big hits like ‘Dunkirk’ and ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ are expected to be in the race.

Last year’s Oscars was hosted by famous talk show host Jimmy Kimmel and it drew an average of 32.9 million viewers for ABC, a four percent drop from the prior year. More worrisome, however, was a steeper slide in the key demographic of adults aged 18-49, whose viewership was down 14 percent from 2016.

Though the show ran especially long, at three hours and 49 minutes, it finished with a bang, the infamous envelope mix-up that led to ‘La La Land” being incorrectly announced as the best picture before ‘Moonlight’ was crowned.

This year, the academy has prohibited the PwC accountants who handle the envelopes from using cellphones or social media during the show. The accounting firm on Monday also unveiled several reforms including the addition of a third balloting partner in the show’s control room. Neither of the PwC representatives involved in the mishap last year, Brian Cullinan or Martha Ruiz, will return to the show.
