Nominations for the 2018 Oscars will be announced this morning
ABC(LOS ANGELES) — Nominations for the 90th Academy Awards will be announced this morning in Beverly Hills, beginning 8:22 a.m. ET. You’ll be able to watch it live on Oscars.org.
Girls Trip‘s Tiffany Haddish, along with War for the Planet of the Apes and Star Wars: The Last Jedi‘s Andy Serkis, will announce the nominees.
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri; The Shape of Water; Call Me by Your Name; Lady Bird; and Darkest Hour are all likely to scoop up a number of nominations.
Based on last weekend’s Screen Actors’ Guild Awards and the Golden Globes earlier this month, Three Billboards is an odds-on favorite for best picture, and its lead star, Frances McDormand, for best actress.
Aside from McDormand, the best actress race is expected to feature Saoirse [SER-sha] Ronan, from Lady Bird and The Shape of Water‘s Sally Hawkins.
Gary Oldman, who earned Golden Globe and SAG Awards for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour, has also generated plenty of Oscar buzz that began even before the film’s release. Back then he told ABC Radio that he doesn’t concern himself much with awards. “It’s not what gets me up in the morning, but it’s hard to avoid it,” he said, although it’s “nice to be liked.”
Daniel Kaluuya has a shot for his starring role in Get Out, but as far as this morning’s Oscar announcements are concerned, he told ABC Radio at Sunday’s SAG Awards that he’s keeping a “let’s just see” attitude.
“I take every day as it comes and see what happens and just go could happen, could not, and you just kind of keep it moving.”
The 90th Academy Awards, hosted once again by Jimmy Kimmel, will air live on ABC from Hollywood on March 4.
