The 2018 Oscar Nominations Were Announced…. And None For You, James Franco!

January 23, 2018 / Posted by:

This year’s Oscars will be held in a parking lot a block away from The Dolby Theater in Hollywood, it will be BYOC (bring your own champagne), everyone will sit on folding chairs, crates or the ground, and the statues will be spray painted gold and made from recycled dog food cans. Because the Academy busted their entire budget on this morning’s nominations ceremony, which was hosted by Andy Serkis (who wasn’t wearing a green bodysuit, weirdly enough) and Tiffany Haddish, who was a mess and may have been morning drunk (I don’t blame her ass) since she had too many Adele Dazeem moments to count. But she should get a bonus for her seductive pronunciation of Call Me By Your Name.

Nearly every category was introduced with a little skit starring actresses like Michelle Yeoh, Rosario Dawson, Gal Gadot, Michelle Rodriguez, Rebel Wilson, Priyanka Chopra, Zoe Saldana and Molly Shannon. Yes, they spent money, which leads me to the actual noms…

The big “snubs” were Armie Hammer not getting a Supporting Actor nomination (I guess Oscar voters didn’t like his Christmas card), Holly Hunter not getting a Best Supporting Actress nomination (for The Big Sick), Hong Chau not getting a nomination for Downsizing and The Florida Project, I, Tonya, The Post and Mudbound getting shut out of Best Picture. Also Steven Spielberg and Dee Rees didn’t get Best Director nominations. And James Franco doesn’t have to worry about Scarlett Johansson tackling him on the Oscars red carpet to snatch her Time’s Up pin back, because although everyone predicted he would be nominated, he wasn’t. Although, Gary Oldman was nominated and if he wears a Time’s Up pin, she may try to snatch his.

That movie where Sally Hawkins gets dicked down by a fish man (The Shape Of Water) got the most nominations with 13, followed by Dunkirk with 8 and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri with 7. Greta Gerwig became only the fifth woman to get a Best Director nomination and Jordan Peele became only the fifth black man. And Meryl Streep got her 21st nomination. But Meryl is probably not going to get her fourth Oscar win, because Frances has got this (and so does Gary Oldman, Allison Janney and Sam Rockwell).

The full list (SPOILER ALERT: It’s not another #OscarsSoWhite year), as well as the video of the nominations announcement, is below. And if you go outside today, breathe in the air, close your eyes and think about how you’re living in a time and in a world where The Boss Baby is an Oscar nominee.
