Unlike last year, when it was a two-movie race between La La Land and Moonlight (both won!), there are no obvious frontrunners to win Best Picture at the 90th Academy Awards. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri took home Best Motion Picture – Drama at the Golden Globes, but the backlash is strong (and possibly deserved). The Shape of Water and Get Out are in the running, but will the Academy overlook the human/fish-man sex and satirical critique of systemic racism (and prejudice against horror-adjacent movies)? And what about Greta Gerwig’s heartfelt Lady Bird, Luca Guadagnino’s sensual Call Me By Your Name, and Christopher Nolan’s stunning Dunkirk?

On Tuesday morning, co-presenters Tiffany Haddish (who wasn’t nominated for her performance in Girls Trip, but it would have been great if she had been and got to say her own name) and Andy Serkis took the first step towards answering those questions when they announced this year’s nominees.
