Oscar Nominations 2018: surprises and milestones

The Oscar nominations have been announced and there were more than a few surprises and even some impressive milestones.

Topping the nominations was The Shape of Water with a total of 13 nominations — amazing for a film about a woman and fish-monster in love.

Mudbound’s Rachel Morrison is the first female cinematographer to be nominated in this year’s cinematography category, which is a huge milestone for women in this field. Jordan Peele is also making milestones being the fifth black person to get a Best Director nomination for Get Out, while Christopher Nolan scores his first Best Director nomination for Dunkirk.
