The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced the nominees for the 90th ACADEMY AWARDS, which Jimmy Kimmel will host on Sunday, March 4 at 8:30p ET / 5:30p PT.

The nominations were announced in a ceremony at the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater in L.A., hosted by Tiffany Haddish (Girls Trip) and Andy Serkis with special guests (in accompanying videos) Gal Gadot, Salma Hayek, Rosario Dawson, Priyanka Chopra, Michelle Rodriguez, Zoe Saldana, Molly Shannon, Rebel Wilson and Michelle Yeoh.

Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water led the way with 13 nominations, one less than the record 14 held by last year’s La La Land. Although del Toro’s 2006 film Pan’s Labyrinth was nominated for foreign language film and won three in technical categories, del Toro himself had never been nominated before this year. He was nominated as , director and co-screenwriter of The Shape of Water.

Editor-in-Chief Jeff Sneider will likely have more in-depth analysis very soon, but the most notable spoiler was Paul Thomas Anderson’s Phantom Thread, which didn’t receive very much love from the Golden Globes and Critics Choice (other than lead actor Daniel Day Lewis), but received Best Picture, Director and Supporting Actress for Leslie Manville on top of technical awards like Costume Design.

Steven Spielberg’s The Post received a Best Picture nomination, but was shut out of all other categories other than a 21st Oscar nomination for actor Meryl Streep.

Cinematographer Roger A. Deakins received his 14th nomination for Blade Runner 2049; he has yet to win in the Cinematography category.

Another “category spoiler” was Focus ’ Victoria & Abdul, which had received some nominations from the Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild (SAG), but was nominated for both its Make-Up/Hair and Costume Design.

Martin McDonagh, Luca Guadagnino and Steven Spielberg were omitted from the directing category even though McDonagh had previously received a DGA nomination and his Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri won the award for ensemble cast at the SAG Awards on Sunday.

Lady Bird writer/director Greta Gerwig became the fifth woman nominated in the directing category, while Rachel Morrison is the first woman to be nominated for her cinematography for Mudbound.

Noticeably absent from the Feature category was Brett Morgen’s Jane, which was nominated and won the Producers Guild award this past weekend.
