Actress: Sally Hawkins, "The Shape of Water"; Frances McDormand, "Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri"; Margot Robbie in "I, Tonya"; Saoirse Ronan in "Lady Bird"; Meryl Streep in "The Post".

Britons Daniel Day-Lewis, Gary Oldman and Daniel Kaluuya were nominated in the leading actor category for their roles in "Phantom Thread", "Darkest Hour", and "Get Out" respectively.

Original Screenplay: "The Big Sick", "Get Out", "Lady Bird", "The Shape of Water", "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri". However, Luca Guadagnino lost on Best Director nod for the film. Peele is also the fourth black writer to be nominated for best original screenplay, and the first in more than 25 years.

The Disaster Artist did score an Oscar nomination for best adapted screenplay.
