Norhan Zouak, Staff Writer

“And the Oscar goes to…” Um, La La Land? No. Envelope-gate happened a year ago already and we are in the midst of yet another award season. Early Tuesday morning, the 90th Academy Award nominations were announced.

Girls Trip’s Tiffany Haddish and Star Wars’ Andy Serkis accompanied Academy President, John Bailey, as they took the stage at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills, California.

The show will take place on March 4 and air live on ABC at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. Jimmy Kimmel will host for the second year in a row. Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water led with 13 nominations, followed by Martin McDonagh’s Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri with nine, and Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk with eight.
