Guillermo del Toro’s fantasy drama The Shape Of Water leads the Oscar nominations with 13 but a host of British talent is in the running too, including Gary Oldman, Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Hawkins, Lesley Manville and Daniel Kaluuya.
The Shape Of Water leads the Oscar nominations for the 90th Academy Awards, with 13 nods. Other films with several leading category nominations include Darkest Hour, Dunkirk, Get Out and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri by Martin McDonagh, who also got a nod for original screenplay.
Guillermo del Toro’s fantasy drama film is set at a secret research facility in the 1950s, where a lonely janitor forms a unique relationship with an amphibious creature that is being held in captivity.
The rest of the best picture nominations went to Call Me By Your Name, Get Out, Lady Bird, Phantom Thread, The Post and The Shape Of Water.
A host of Britons have been nominated including Gary Oldman, Daniel Day-Lewis and Daniel Kaluuya - who will battle it out for leading actor.
Oldman was nominated for best actor fresh off his success at the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour.
Get Out’s Kaluuya is a first-time nominee unlike Day-Lewis, who already has three Oscars in his trophy cabinet.
Hosts Andy Serkis and Tiffany Haddish announced the Britons are up against Hollywood heavyweight Denzel Washington for Roman J Israel, Esq and newcomer Timothee Chalamet with Call Me By Your Name.
The Shape Of Water’s Sally Hawkins was nominated for leading actress, as was Ireland’s Saoirse Ronan for her role in Lady Bird, it was announced in Los Angeles on Tuesday.
Lesley Manville was nominated for supporting actress for her role opposite Day-Lewis in Phantom Thread.
Christopher Nolan was nominated for best director for Dunkirk.
Manville is up against Mudbound’s Mary J Blige, Lady Bird’s Laurie Metcalf, The Shape Of Water’s Octavia Spencer and Allison Janney in I, Tonya.
Oscars history has been made with the first nomination for a female cinematographer. Rachel Morrison’s inclusion in the best cinematography category for the Netflix film Mudbound, the first time a woman has been among the nominees.
She will compete against British cinematographer Roger Deakins, who received his 14th nod for his work on Blade Runner 2049. He has never won the prize.
Mudbound’s director, Dee Rees, missed out on a best director nod but has become the first black woman to direct an Oscar-nominated performance, with Mary J Blige landing a nod for best supporting actress.
Lady Bird’s Greta Gerwig was nominated for best director, making her only the fifth women in history to be up for the award. She faces Get Out’s Jordan Peele, Phantom Thread’s Paul Thomas Anderson, Nolan and Del Toro.
Call Me By Your Name star Timothee Chalamet, 22, is now the youngest best actor nominee since 1939, when Mickey Rooney bagged a nod for Babes In Arms when he was 19. If he wins, he will be the youngest-ever winner in that category, besting Adrien Brody for The Pianist, who was 29.
Christopher Plummer, 88, has become the oldest nominee for best supporting actor for his role in Sir Ridley Scott’s All The Money In The World, in which he was an 11th-hour replacement to scrub disgraced actor Kevin Spacey from the finished film.
James Ivory, 89, who is nominated for best adapted screenplay for Call Me By Your Name, is now the oldest Oscar nominee ever, taking the title from Titanic star Gloria Stuart, who was 87.
Other Britons to be nominated include Radiohead musician Jonny Greenwood for his original score on Phantom Thread.
Hollyoaks stars Rachel Shenton and Chris Overton have also been nominated. The soap stars, best known for playing Mitzeee Minniver and Liam McAllister in the Channel 4 show, have bagged a nod for best live action short for their film The Silent Child.
Jimmy Kimmel will host the 90th Academy Awards from Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre on March 4.
