Oscars nominations: James Franco and Wonder Woman among major snubs

"What is attractive is to get there being faithful to the images you have loved all your life,".

Two of McDormand's co-stars, Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell, go head to head in the best supporting actor category. Then again, consider that Guillermo del Toro's fantasy-sci fi-romance "The Shape of Water" has 13 nominations - and might have set a record until, inexplicably, being ignored in the best makeup and visual effects categories.

Changes apparent within the 90th Academy Awards, televised on March 4, are more important. There has been little concern among these writers for the aesthetic quality of the films or performances involved. The usual mould for best picture nominations is more your drama and period type movies. We have more people of color in the Academy, more women in the Academy, and the demographic is becoming slightly younger as well. Greta Gerwig is only the fifth woman nominated in the best director category for bringing "Lady Bird,", while "Get Out" s' Jordan Peele became the fifth black man nominated in the best director category. Roger Deakins has got his 14th nomination in cinematography for Blade Runner 2049 which makes him the most nominated cinematographer of all time but not one single even. Meryl Streep has been nominated for 19th time now for her performance in The Post directed by Steven Spielberg and the film has also got a best picture nomination.

Original Screenplay: "The Big Sick", "Get Out", "Lady Bird", "The Shape of Water", "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri".

Sally Hawkins and Octavia Spencer were both nominated for their performances in The Shape of Water, and R&B singer Mary J. Blige was nominated for her role in Mudbound, the interesting and honest Netflix production about two families, one black and the other white, in postwar Mississippi. Starting with the best picture, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences blew it - like it always does - with the annual Oscar nominations.

"The Post" star is a veteran of the Academy Awards, having won two golden statuettes and been nominated three other times for Best Actor, and over the course of his lengthy career he's picked up a number of tips to make the lengthy ceremony as comfortable and fun as possible.

Fingers crossed we will see her win the award.

But it was only released nationwide in the United States last week, and it wasn't nominated for a Golden Globe, a Screen Actors Guild (SAG) award, or a British Academy of Film and Television Arts award (BAFTA). It's going to be a complex plot where I don't need someone's 11-year-old asking if they can go to the bathroom.

But ignoring stories about women in love who don't repent, pay for their transgressions through death or endless misery, or sleep with a man somewhere in the narrative is nothing new for Academy voters. The leader of the mission is Capt. Mitch Nelson, played by Chris Hemsworth.

Rejoice, film critics and celebrity devotees. On top of this, there's the idea that often individuals are awarded Oscars not necessarily for the work they're nominated for, but simply due to the fact that they've never been given the award before.

"Adapted Screenplay: "Call Me By Your Name", "The Disaster Artist", "Logan", Molly's Game", "Mudbound".

Q: Do you think the #MeToo movement will take center stage at this year's awards like it did with the Golden Globes? Even though the final lineup may be disappointing, we still get caught up in the competition and can't help but pore over the details to decide who will be left standing when the celebration is over.
