A year ago saw Ava DuVernay's 13th was nominated for Best Documentary Feature, and I maintain to this day that it should have won.

The burger chain will engage fans on Twitter, and it states that while anyone/any content from the past year is eligible, they give a helpful hint to put up something fresh leading to Sunday's award show. Denzel Washington for Roman J. Israel, Esq., one of the least-seen movies with a major nomination.

Should Win: "Call Me By Your Name" stood apart for me.

His overall total of 51 nominations - including five for original song - is the most for any living person, and second only to Walt Disney at 59.Retired basketball superstar Kobe Bryant is an Oscar nominee thanks to his collaboration with artist Glen Keane and composer John Williams for the short "Dear Basketball".

Conway bucked the McDormand trend, choosing Saiorse Ronan for her performance in "Lady Bird". Even more - 73% - make no choice for Best Supporting Actor. The ability to identify with Lady Bird and her mother was one of the strongest aspects of Gerwig's directorial debut.

Rockwell leads a supporting-actor category that also features Willem Dafoe of "The Florida Project", Woody Harrelson of "Three Billboards", Richard Jenkins for "The Shape of Water" and Christopher Plummer for "All the Money in the World". While sexual misconduct allegations continue to wreak havoc in Hollywood, many stars have been using their voices and red carpet fashion to amplify the #MeToo and #TimesUp initiatives. At 88 years old, Plummer holds the record for the oldest acting nominee. "MORE: "Unexpected moments that prove anything can happen at the Oscars"'The Shape of Water' has a great chance of winning Best Picture, but it's not a lock", said ABC News' Lesley Messer.

"It's fantastic news for Scotland ", said Fletcher, who has won 80 caps. "He was a player who you could trust". McTominay has started United's last three games, including the important clashes against Sevilla and Chelsea .

The artists worked with a diverse set of nominees, from war films and coming-of-age dramas, to a nostalgia-laden monster flick and a rare horror film entry, and styles used range from pop art to minimalism, typographic to psychedelic.

"The Shape of Water" and "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" - two very different love stories of sorts - are somewhat favored.

Score: "The Shape of Water". In an interview with Deadline, host Jimmy Kimmel revealed that Oscar producers Jennifer Todd and Michael De Luca had extended an invite to the "Moonlight" team to make things right (or as right as it could get) after "La La Land" was mistakenly announced as the victor a year ago. Faye opened the envelope and announced "La La Land" as the victor past year, while, "Moonlight" actually was the victor. This year her best actress nod is for her role in Spielberg's The Post. Last year, the Academy saw 336 eligible films, while this year saw 341.

The real place where the past and the future would collide at the cost of the present in this year's Oscars would be in the "Best Actress" categories. Dee Rees, the director and writer of "Mudbound", is the first black woman to be nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay, having adapted "Mudbound" from Hillary Jordan's novel of the same name.

In Blade Runner 2049, Deakins has created the flawless atmosphere, but it would be nearly impossible for members to disregard the fact that the veteran ought to have won his Oscar eons ago while voting.
