Check out what Vinnie Penn has to say about this year's Oscar nominations in the video above.
Perhaps most unexpected was the broad success of Paul Thomas Anderson's "Phantom Thread", which scored not just a best actor nod for what Day-Lewis has said is his final performance and best supporting actress for Lesley Manville, but also nominations for best picture and Anderson's direction.
In a year where prescriptive action to increase safety and diversity is a daily conversation, this year's best picture victor should be one that symbolises the actions of the past few months - the solidarity of the black dresses at the Golden Globes, the creation of the Time's Up legal defence fund, the fight for diverse voices to be heard in film. For so long, I've just wanted to be a director, my dream has been to make films, and for so long, I just thought the biggest and best reward that could even come from my first movie is that I might get to make another one. Joining Stevens among Oscarnominees with local ties is Ann Arbor native Laura Checkoway, whose short film "Edith+Eddie" was nominated for Best Documentary, Short Subject.
Jenkins, who was nominated in the Best Supporting Actor category for playing Giles, a lonely gay illustrator with a crush on the counterman at his local diner, got earnest real quick about his second Oscar nod: "It's humbling and it's really exciting".
The film hit Mexican cinemas two weekends ago, rising to the top of the domestic box office and earning 61.2 million pesos (just under U.S. $3.5 million) on its opening weekend. In addition to those three nominations, the movie also yielded a best actor nomination for star Daniel Kaluuya.
Jordan Peele became the fifth black filmmaker nominated for best director (for "Get Out") and the third to direct a best-picture nominee. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, which has seen significant criticism for its treatment of racism and domestic violence, continued its popularity to pick up six Oscar nominations. Gerwig is the first woman in the Best Director field since Kathryn Bigelow won for "The Hurt Locker" and the fifth woman ever to be nominated for the award. "Get Out" received a nomination for best picture, and Daniel Kaluuya is one of five actors competing in the leading role category. So that means Oscar's would-be "Year of the Superhero" only amounted to two total nominations.
Supporting actor nominations went to Willem Dafoe ("The Florida Project"), Woody Harrelson ("Three Billboards"), Richard Jenkins ("The Shape of Water"), Christopher Plummer ("All the Money In the World") and Sam Rockwell ("Three Billboards"). The film has also scored a nomination for Achievement in Makeup and Hairstyling for Oldman's astounding transformation to the British Prime Minister.
Baring a late surge at the BAFTAs or the DGAs from "Lady Bird" or "Dunkirk", we're pretty much down to a two-picture race for best picture.
