Who's nominated for the 90th Academy Awards?

Logan got an Oscar nomination and people are absolutely delighted

The nominations for the 90th annual Academy Awards were announced this morning (Jan. 23), and they're surprisingly near flawless!

■Michael Stuhlbarg may not have been nominated for Best Supporting Actor, but he managed to pull off a rare feat by appearing in three films nominated for Best Picture: "The Post", "The Shape of Water" and "Call Me By Your Name".

Greta Gerwig became only the fifth woman ever to be nominated for a best director Oscar, for "Lady Bird". Shockingly (or perhaps not so shockingly), she is just the fifth woman to be nominated for Best Director, following Lina Wertmüller for 1976's Seven Beauties, Jane Campion for 1993's The Piano, Sofia Coppola for 2003's Lost in Translation and Kathryn Bigelow-the only woman to win-for 2008's The Hurt Locker.

Kobe Bryant: As a nice surprise, the basketball legend earned his first Oscar nomination for the animated short, "Dear Basketball", which he executive produced, wrote and starred in. Still, although the Academy Awards are a chance to celebrate cinema, that doesn't mean we can't poke fun at the nominees a little bit.

Desta continues: "Let's start with 'Mudbound, ' the Netflix drama directed by Dee Rees".

For his debut Get Out, Peele is up for best original screenplay, best director, and - as a producer - best picture. But even after receiving an astonishing critical reception at Sundance, the film didn't spark the expected bidding war, and Variety reported that some distributors were experiencing a kind of post-Birth of a Nation squeamishness. And, as is also traditional, the industry immediately began buzzing about who made the cut, and who didn't. "The Silence of the Lambs" won Best Picture in 1991, and while many consider it a horror movie, others peg it, too, in the thriller category. Meanwhile, Phantom Thread's Lesley Manville picked up a Best Supporting Actress nomination.

Also, the #metoo and #timesup campaigns against sexual harassment appears to have exerted some influence in voting patterns - one actor thought to have a shot has been shut out, following allegations of misconduct from several women during the voting period.

Meryl Streep, 68, extended her lead as the most-nominated actor ever to 21, with her nomination for "The Post", Steven Spielberg's drama about the Washington Post's decision to publish secret papers about the Vietnam War.

The Christopher Nolan film has been nominated for best picture. Other accolades for Wonder Woman include the Critics' Choice Award for Best Action Movie, the National Board of Review Spotlight Award, and the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) award for Best Stunt Ensemble.

Battle of the Sexes, whose stars have received nominations steadily throughout the past few months, also received no nominations.

The Wicklow resident and three-time victor of the best actor award was nominated for his final acting role in Phantom Thread, which earned a total of six nominations including best picture and best director for Paul Thomas Anderson.
