Daniel Kaluuya, Jordan Peele, Mary J . Blige and More! Check Out the Nominations for the 90th Academy Awards

The nominations for the 90th Academy Awards have been announced and expect way more diversity at the award show than previous years. On Tuesday morning (January 23), comedian and Girls Trip star Tiffany Haddish joined director-actor Andy Serkis and Motion Picture Academy President John Bailey to announce the 2018 nominees at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills.

Among the list of this year’s nominees, breakout star Daniel Kaluuya will be going head-to-head with Denzel Washington for Best Actor in a leading role. Washington, who is a two time Academy-Award winner, was nominated for his role in Roman J. Israel, Esq. and Kaluuya was nominated for his stellar role in Get Out. The 2017 thriller also received several well-deserved nominations. The hit film directed by Jordan Peele was nominated for Best Original Screenplay and Best Picture, while Peele earned an Oscar nom for Best Director.

Director and producer Yance Ford received a nomination for Best Documentary Feature for his acclaimed Netflix documentary, Strong Island. Along with Ford, another Black director Dee Rees was nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay for Mudbound, along with Virgil Williams.

Mary J. Blige is rounding out the award season with two more nominations under her belt. The Grammy-winning singer, who received two nominations from the 2018 Golden Globes, was nominated for Best Original Song for “Mighty River,” and earned another nom for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Mudbound – a Dee Rees directed film that highlights racism in rural Mississippi and life after war. Acclaimed actress Octavia Spencer was also nominated for Best Supporting Actress for The Shape of Water.
