Nomination leaders: Shape of Water,Darkest Hour,Three Billboards,Dunkirk and Blade Runner 2049

Though The Shape of Water (12 nominations) andThree Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri(9 nominations) continued their stamped across precursor season as the (probable) films to beat come Oscar night,Darkest Hourfinally made a significant awards mark.The Joe Wright helmed World War II Winston Churchill drama really should have started its theatrical run in October in the US to build steam but perhaps it wasn't too late if the BAFTA nominations convince Academy voters this week to check the film out before completing their ballots.The other nomination leaders wereBlade Runner 2049andDunkirk(with 8 nominations each).Other major Oscar contenders had to settle for less.I Tonyacontinued its Nathaniel-defying (argh!) upward trajectory this awards season with 5 nominations beating out previously more ballyhooed prestige competition likeCall Me By Your Name(4 noms),Lady Bird(3 noms) andGet Out(2 noms).

But the biggest loser this morning in terms of nominations is Steven Spielberg'sThe Postwhich received not a single nomination.That also happened to it at the SAG nominations,this complete shut-out.Most pundits don't seem to think it's in trouble but wouldn't any other film shut out completely from SAG and BAFTA be considered "in trouble"for Oscar nods?Is its Mecha-Bait 'done-deal-on-paper' status working against it in this new more volatile "what makes a movie an Oscar movie?"era of voting?It's surely food for thought if you'd like to nibble in the comments.

Phantom Threadwith 4 nominations andFilm Stars Don't Die in Liverpoolwith 3 nominations also did better than expected this morning.Full list of nominations with commentary for each category is after the jump...
