The 2018 Oscar Nominations Are Out: The Shape of Water Leads The Pack With 13 Nods

It’s almost time for one of our favourite nights of the year, Oscar night. Deemed one of Hollywood’s most important nights as far as awards season goes, the Oscars celebrate the best in cinema. We may be weeks away until we get to enjoy the fabulous red carpet and the show,  luckily, the 90th Academy Award nominations have been announced.

The folks in the West Coast  got an early start as the nominations for all 24 categories were announced from the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills. Split over a two-part live news conference, actor Andy Serkis and actress Tiffany Haddish announced the best in filmmaking over the past year. 

Did the Academy pile the love on The Shape of Water?  Is this the year the comic book genre gets some Oscar love? Will we see more diversity?
