Tiffany Haddish steals the scene - even reading Oscar nominations

Tiffany Haddish steals the scene - even reading Oscar nominations

(That's what's going on in the chart above.) This year, the front-runner is easy to spot: With a major win at the Screen Actors Guild Awards and more cumulative points than six of the previous 10 winners (at this point in the Oscars race), 1997 best actress victor McDormand is a clear favorite.

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".

Rachel Morrison (pictured), who shot Netflix racial drama Mudbound, has made Oscar history by becoming the first woman ever to be nominated for the best cinematography award.

"I am absolutely thrilled to have received this nomination by the Academy". Tiffany Haddish, Andy Serkis and Academy President John Bailey announced the nominees in a live digital stream, with some assistance from previous Oscar winners.The Academy's accounting firm PwC, which calculates the Oscar ballots and secures the victor envelopes, have announced new procedures for the ceremony to avoid another envelope.

I am shocked and pleased that "Phantom Thread" scored not only a best picture nomination but a nomination for director (Paul Thomas Anderson).

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.

But it was one better than the number of nominations granted by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, or BAFTA, where it raked in 12, including best film and best director.

Kim Kardashian Debunks Numerous Rumors Involving Her Third Child
In a new post on her app , Khloe writes: 'Tristan was the one who kept telling me: "I think you're pregnant". If you're patiently waiting for the big baby name reveal, watch this sweet Kimye family film while ya wait .

Fellow Brit Jacqueline Durran (pictured) is also up against herself in the best costume design category, for the same two movies.

The all-over-the-place-ness of earlier awards show indicators like the Screen Actors Guild and Producers Guild Awards aren't helping matters much this year when it comes to trying to predict things.

Oldman has already won a Golden Globe and a British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) award for his performance as Winston Churchill in "Darkest Hour", though he faces stiff competition from three-time Oscar victor Day-Lewis, among others. On the other end of the spectrum, Christopher Plummer, who replaced a scandal-plagued Kevin Spacey in All the Money in the World in a shoot that lasted only nine days - became the oldest nominated actor in the history of the Oscars at 88.

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

Remember when "Crash" won best picture in 2005? Movie attendance hit a 24-year low in 2017 despite the firepower of "Star Wars: The Last Jedi", "Beauty and the Beast" and "Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2".
