2018 Oscar Nominations

Yesterday the Oscar nominations for the 90th annual awards were announced. Voters seem to be leaning towards a new era in Hollywood by giving first-time nominations to a large portion of the nominees, recognising woman in cinematography for the first time and including Netflix into the mix. Each year, however, there’s are nominations and snubs that truly baffle movie masses. This years include the exclusion of The Lego Batman Movie, Wonder Woman, James Franco for The Disaster Artist, Mudbound, Jessica Chastain for Molly’s Game, Tom Hanks for The Post and the inclusion of The Last Jedi, animated feature film The Boss Baby and Logan for Best Adapted Screenplay.


It’s clear from the list that the voters didn’t take films tainted by sexual harassment allegations into consideration. James Franco’s portrayal as the eccentric Tommy Wiseau almost guaranteed him a spot until The Times published a story detailing sexual harassment allegations against the actor. It once again highlights the question about whether or not an artist should be seen separate from his art.


The Shape of Water swept the 2018 Oscar nominations with 13 nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director, while Get Out certainly didn’t disappoint by picked for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor.

DC fans, however, will be bitterly disappointed that, despite very high praise from critics globally, Wonder Woman, the third-highest-grossing picture of 2017, has been completely snubbed by The Academy and didn’t receive a single nomination. Many believed Patty Jenkins would receive an Oscar nomination for her work as a director on the project. That didn’t happen, however.


Most fans are exceptionally angry that The Boss Baby, the animation that stars Alec Baldwin as a baby genius, and Ferdinand, which stars John Cena as a fighting bull, received an Oscar nomination over The LEGO Batman Movie. Both films couldn’t have been high on anyone’s list of top animated feature films of 2017.

      If that’s true then why did Greta Gerwig get nominated for Ladybird over McDonagh and constant Oscar favorite Spielberg? Truth is that Wonder Woman is not an Oscar type movie, comic book movies very rarely get nominated in major categories, stop trying to attribute this to sexism. The Academy very clearly made a forced effort in the past couple years to appease the outcry of a couple years back. There’s no way a genre picture like Get Out would get so many nominations in years past, I saw so many better performances than Daniel Kaluuya in the past year, not to say he didn’t do an awesome job, but nothing about that role seemed Oscar worthy.

    Who gives a flying fuck about movie prize shows these days ? Haven’t these overpaid, egocentric, reactionary primadonnas got enough already? “Oh No, film X didn’t get a shot at a stupid ass gold man figure! Quick internet, set RAGE to MAXIMUM!” Fuck you all. Pay attention to the world outside of your fucking insipid celebritydom bubble. Yeesh.
