Oscar Nominations for Saoirse Ronan, Cartoon Saloon, Daniel Day-Lewis, Martin McDonagh

See the full list of Oscar nominations here!

The 2018 Oscars, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, will be awarded Sunday, March 3. This year is set to be one of the most intriguing awards ceremonies in memory. Last year, the effect of #OscarsSoWhite and the influx of over 1,500 new members to the academy (20% of its membership) – many of whom were women and people of colour - meant that voting was no longer as predictable, with all usual patterns being broken.

Of course, that resulted in one of the biggest upsets in the history of the Oscars, as the relatively safe and pleasant La La Land was mistakenly announced the winner, when actually Barry Jenkins’ Moonlight had scooped the gong. The mistake became an all-too-easy metaphor for how the Academy was clinging on to its old ways for as long as possible, before finally bestowing a beautiful story of a young, Black gay man the Best Picture award.

And since then, so much has changed - as indicated by the Oscar nominations this year, which indicate that again, the race this year is going to be a tight one.

The #MeToo movement has highlighted the absence of recognition for women’s stories and artistry. Natalie Portman’s dig at the Golden Globes where she pointed out that all the Best Director nominees were men may have had a knock-on effect of Academy members, who rightly acknowledged Greta Gerwig’s incredible work on Lady Bird – making her only the fifth woman to ever be nominated, alongside Katheryn Bigelow who won in 2010, Sofia Coppola, Jane Campion and Lina Wertmuller. It's notable that Stephen Spielberg (rightly) did not get a directing nomination for The Post, when Gerwig did - a possible indication that the Academy paid attention to Gerwig controversially being snubbed for a well-deserved Best Director nomination at the Golden Globes.

Another history-making woman is Rachel Morrison, who has become the first woman to ever be nominated for cinematography for her work on Mudbound.

Jordan Peele and Daniel Kaluuya received nominations for the directing and acting skills in Get Out, the brilliant social horor film about racism

Of course, we’re delighted that Saoirse Ronan has been nominated for Lady Bird, that Cartoon Saloon have been honoured for their work the animated feature The Breadwinner, Daniel Day-Lewis received a nomination for his final acting role in Phantom Thread, and Martin McDonagh’s Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri received a Best Picture nomination as well as Best Original Screenplay.

The full list is below, and we look forward to staying up late in March and seeing how it all unfolds!
