Rachel Morrison the cinematographer for Mudbound is officially the first female cinematographer to be nominated for an Oscar!
Greta Gerwig, who is nominated twice for her work on Lady Bird, is only the fifth woman to be nominated for Best Director and it has been EIGHT YEARS since a women has been nominated in the category. Not going to lie, while sitting in the basement of the historical Prince Theater in Philadelphia (the home base of the Philadelphia Film Society – the day job) watching the nominations be announced before my coworkers came, I chocked up when Greta’s name was announced! I had no clue how important this moment was to me until I started to cry!
Octavia Spencer is now tied with Viola Davis as the most nominated black actress in Oscar history!
Meryl Streep keeps her title as most nominated actor in Oscar history after earning on this year for her performance in The Post!
Jordan Peele the director, producer, and writer of Get Out is only the fifth black man to ever be nominated for Best Director and the first to land three nominations!
Mary J. Blige is reportedly the first person to hold nominations for best song and best performance in the same year!
Christopher Plummer is nominated for his performance in All the Money in the World making him the oldest actor nominee in Oscar history!
Logan has become the first superhero film to score a nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay!
And the snubs…
Not surprising but really WONDER WOMAN got NOTHING! REALLY!
Kind of surprising, James Franco (who has been recently accused of sexual misconduct) did not receive a nomination for his performance in The Disaster Artist.
No love for Mudbound director Dee Rees!
Jessica Chastain was snubbed for her Molly’s Game performance.
And no Best Picture love for I, Tonya or indie darling, The Florida Project!
The 90th Annual Academy Awards will air Sunday, March 4.
