Nominations for the 2018 Oscars, or Academy Awards, the highest honors in the movie industry, were announced on Tuesday. The awards will be handed out on March 4 at a ceremony in Hollywood hosted by comedian Jimmy Kimmel. 

The nominees for the 90th annual Academy Awards have just been announced at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills.

Guillermo Del Toro's cold war fantasy 'The Shape of Water' dominated the nominations as the movie garnered 13 nods, one shy of the record of 14 nominations shared by movies like 'All About Eve', 'Titanic' and 'La La Land'.The movie has been nominated for Best Picture, Best Director nod for Del Toro, Best Screenplay and acting awards for Sally Hawkins (Best Actress in a Leading Role) and Octavia Spencer (Best Actress in a Supporting Role), in addition to many nominations in the technical categories.

Christopher Nolan's war epic 'Dunkirk' was not far behind. The movie was nominated for eight Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Director (Christopher Nolan) and Best Cinematography. Meanwhile, 'Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri', which is considered to be a frontrunner in Best Picture category after wins at the Golden Globes and SAG awards, is up for seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture, lead actress nod for Frances McDormand, with Sam Rockwell and Woody Harrelson nominated in Best Supporting Actor (Male) category. There was also a historical moment at the announcement ceremony when 'Mudbound' cinematographer Rachel Morrison became the first woman ever to get nominated in the Best Cinematography category.

Tiffany Haddish and Andy Serkis made an announcement alongside Academy president John Bailey. To win his first Oscar as the Best Director, Christopher Nolan will be fighting it out with Jordan Peele for 'Get Out', Greta Gerwig for 'Lady Bird', Paul Thomas Anderson for 'Phantom Thread' and Guillermo Del Toro for 'The Shape of Water'.  The nominations presenters were Andy Serkis and Tiffany Haddish, with Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra as a special guest.
