Meryl Streep, Jordan Peele & more react to 2018 Oscar nominations

Leading this year's nominations is Guillermo del Toro's "The Shape of Water," a film in which a woman who is unable to speak connects with a mutant kept in a tub.

After the announcement of Oscar nominations, actors and directors often release perfectly curated responses via press release to share their joy about the nomination.

Streep was nominated for her role in "The Post", while McDormand was nominated for her role in "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri".

For example, "Lady Bird" and "Get Out", written and directed by Greta Gerwig and Jordan Peele respectfully, have been nominated for Best Picture, Director, Original Screenplay and Actress/Actor. Indeed the director category is actually pretty telling this year. Rachel Morrison became the first woman nominated for a cinematography Oscar for her work in "Mudbound". It's the first time the streaming service has made a significant dent on the nominations and has done so by backing the vision of an up-and-coming black American female writer/director.

Peele just stirred the internet with his hilarious tweet following "Get Out's" four Oscars nomination. Winning a Meryl has a nice ring to it.

Best Picture: "Call Me by Your Name", "Darkest Hour", "Dunkirk", "Get Out", "Lady Bird", "Phantom Thread", "The Post", "The Shape of Water,"Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri".

Will Normal life be affected because of Karnataka Bandh today?
Since the NDA government was in power at the Centre, Parrikar's arguments were given precedence and the project was stalled. What have all the previous bandhs done? It was only in 1985 that the central government intervened to resolve the crisis.

Best supporting actor: William Dafoe, "The Florida Project"; Woody Harrelson, "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri"; Richard Jenkins, "The Shape of Water"; Christopher Plummer, "All the Money in the World"; Sam Rockwell, "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri". Six nominations: best picture, directing (Paul Thomas Anderson), actor (Daniel Day-Lewis), supporting actress (Leslie Manville), costume design, music (original score).

While The Disaster Artist was previously expected to perform well at the awards, sexual harassment allegations against director James Franco appear to have led to his being locked out of nominations. Many critics called her the best thing about the film. The very first one ever who is not a man. I suspect they will be cancelling each other out, but Nolan's war movie could be a dark horse for Best Picture. If women are only 2 percent of the working DPs, it's not surprising there haven't been more women [nominated].

Is this the best crop of nominees... ever?

While Wood likes best actor nominee Daniel Kaluuya's odds for taking the category, he urged Noah not to count out Denzel Washington. For the most part, the nominations were what everyone expected.
