by

Now that Awards Season is underway, the wait is on for the big one, the Academy Awards. We got our first taste of what’s to come when the Oscars kicks off on live on ABC March 4th with the announcement of the nominees. As with any year, there were surprises and there were snubs, but we’ll get to those, and our predictions, later. For now, check out the nominees for some of the major awards this year at the 90th Academy Awards. For the full list of nominees, check out the official Oscars site.

 

Best Picture: The Academy decided to go with nine films this year, featuring such genres as two coming-of-age films, to two war films, and two usually underrepresented genres at the Oscars, horror and fantasy.
