On Tuesday, film buffs will find out which films and filmmakers will be nominated for this year’s Academy Awards as the list of contenders is announced from Hollywood.
Actors Tiffany Haddish and Andy Serkis will announce the nominees for all 24 categories at 8:22 AM EST, 5:22 AM PST. As with this past weekend’s Screen Actors Guild Awards, women in Hollywood will take center stage as stars like Gal Gadot, Priyanka Chopra, Rebel Wilson, and Michelle Yeoh also make appearances. Technical award categories will be announced first, starting with Best Production Design. Then, at 8:38 AM ET, the top categories including Best Actor, Actress, Director, and Picture will be announced.
Top contenders at this year’s awards include Martin McDonagh’s darkly comedic tale of justice “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” and Greta Gerwig’s mother-daughter coming of age yarn “Lady Bird,” both of which won big at the Golden Globes.
Genre films will also have a large presence, as Guillermo Del Toro’s monster romance “The Shape of Water” is expected to land many nominations, while Jordan Peele’s provocative horror debut “Get Out” will hope to turn its status as one of the most talked about films of the year into a Best Picture nomination. Other contenders include Steven Spielberg’s “The Post” and Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk.”
Jimmy Kimmel will return to host the 90th Academy Awards on Sunday, March 4. Check out the predictions from TheWrap’s awards editor Steve Pond in the gallery below.
