  • The 'Mudbound' DP is nominated alongside Roger Deakins Bruno Delbonnel Hoyte Van Hoytema and Dan Laustsen

This will be the first new movie of hers fans can see in 2018 and it will also be the first time fans will see a Marvel film shot by a woman.

"Morrison's film "Mudbound" - which was directed by Dee Rees" - is up for four Oscars overall.

Gerwig's fellow directing nominees include Christopher Nolan ("Dunkirk"), Jordan Peele ("Get Out"), Paul Thomas Anderson ("Phantom Thread"), and Guillermo del Toro ("The Shape of Water").

Blige is still getting used to the idea of being a double Oscar nominee. They include: "The Boss Baby", "The Breadwinner", "Coco", "Ferdinand" and "Loving Vincent".

Among the snubs were actors Tom Hanks (The Post) and James Franco (The Disaster Artist), although the latter has been battling sexual-misconduct allegations.

The age of Call Me by Your Name actor Timothée Chalamet who is up for best actor. "It's not just about cinematography, it about believing in yourself and that anything's possible".

However, as with nearly every Academy Awards ever, there's always something troubling, and this year we've got absolutely no Asian or Latino nominees in any of the acting categories.

Though the nominations for "The Shape of Water" didn't make history, there were other nominations that broke the mold.

"This is all I ever wanted to do", said Morrison.

Meryl Streep has been nominated for Best Actress a whopping 21 times, having won 3.

Oscar nominees for best foreign-language film have been announced by the film academy.

Saadiq, Blige and Taura Stinson were nominated for collaborating on "Mighty River" from "Mudbound" while Common was nominated alongside Diane Warren for "Stand Up For Something" from the movie "Marshall".

All these films - and Martin McDonagh's Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, which is being hobbled by the sheer number of prizes it has won - are dazzlingly original, full of experimentation in story-telling, stamped with their creators' mark. "Logan" did snag an adapted screenplay nod, but otherwise, movies like "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" and "Blade Runner: 2049" (admittedly a disappointment, financially speaking) were limited to bids related to their technical virtuosity in areas like sound and music. It's the 14th nomination for veteran Deakins, the fifth for Delbonnel, and the first nomination for Van Hoytema and Laustsen.

Correction: Netflix has eight total Oscar nominations.

Morrison's nomination is historic, as it's the first time a woman has ever been nominated in the cinematography category.

The Oscars will air on March 4 featuring Jimmy Kimmel as the host for some reason.
