Jordan Peele ugly cried after learning of Oscar nominations

Or that the ultimate message of Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is that compassion ultimately triumphs over ignorance, anger, prejudice, and violence?

Snubs were nearly becoming a way of life for documentary filmmaker Steve James who time and time again churns out excellent work to not much film Academy recognition.

Oscar nominated films The Shape of Water and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri have new release dates in India. "Moonlight" director Barry Jenkins was the only Best Director nominee in 2017 who isn't a white male.

Campaigning for the 90th Academy Awards has been going on in Hollywood for five months, with films falling over themselves to claim the cultural zeitgeist.

In the past, the ace filmmaker has failed to receive a nod for his critically-acclaimed movies and money-spinners such as "The Dark Knight" and "Inception". They deserve to take home all eight nominations, in my opinion, when the 90th Academy Awards takes place March 4. As a proper send-off, Daniel Day-Lewis received a nod in the Best Actor segment for "Phantom Thread", his sixth nomination in total. The Best Actor category might follow the same pattern as Golden Globes as it has been since many years with few surprises in the middle.

Franco has denied the allegations, but it was enough to see him left off the list for best actor at the Oscars.

Streep said in a statement she was honored by the nomination "for a film I love, a film that stands in defense of press freedom, and inclusion of women's voices in the movement of history".

That "Logan" is the first live-action superhero movie to land a best adapted screenplay nomination?

John Williams adds to his record number of music scoring nominations with his 46th for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

After getting absolutely robbed at the Golden Globes, Get Out finally received the recognition it deserved during the 2018 Oscar nominations on Tuesday. And - and I mean this as no slight - it's the sort of movie that traditionally would get those nominations as a classically made film about an important subject that looks to America's recent past while commenting on its present. But the shorts introducing categories covering animation, production design, and other categories were brisk and cleverly staged and had a bit of star power thanks to Rosario Dawson, Rebel Wilson, Molly Shannon, and others.

That Mary J. Blige became the first person to be nominated for an acting award and original song? Raking in four nominations, the popular Key and Peele comedian's debut film is making a splash in the big races. Of course, there are omissions - the year-defining Wonder Woman was absent even from technical categories, the trailblazing Mudbound was not one of the two surprises in best picture (that honour went to Darkest Hour and Phantom Thread). Last year's host, Jimmy Kimmel will be again taking on the hosting reins after his last year's gig received positive reviews from the audiences as well as the critics.
