2018 Academy Awards Nominees

The 2018 Oscar nominations were announced Tuesday morning.

The nominees for the 90th Academy Awards are announced today, in a live broadcast from the Samuel Goldwyn Theater at the Academy's Beverley Hills headquarters.

Fantasy romance The Shape of Water has been nominated in seven categories, while Winston Churchill biopic Darkest Hour appears in five.

The nominations were announced by actress Tiffany Haddish, recently seen in the hit comedy Girls Trip, and Planet of the Apes star Andy Serkis.

"I gotta see this Dunkirk, it sounds like a lot of people like it!" quipped Haddish, after Christopher Nolan's war drama was nominated in several categories, including Best Original Score.

Radiohead guitarist Johnny Greenwood has been nominated for an Oscar, for his work on the score of Phantom Thread.

Rachel Morrison has become the first female filmmaker ever to be nominated for a Best Cinematography Oscar, for her work on Mudbound, a period drama released on Netflix.

The winners will be announced on March 4 in an award ceremony at Hollywood's Dolby Theatre, hosted by American comedian Jimmy Kimmel. Former hosts have included Ellen DeGeneres, Bob Hope and Whoopi Goldberg.

Last year, the ceremony was broadcast live in the UK by Sky Cinema, though no broadcast details for this year have yet been confirmed.
