“The Shape of water” is a thriller and fantasy drama with a social commentary. Film tries to be so much and the funny part is that it manages to succeed in a lot.

Supporting actress Octavia Spencer was also nominated for the best-supporting actress. Spencer plays the role of Zelda in the film who is supposedly the only friend that Eliza has.
Michael Shannon also gives an amazing performance in the form of Strickland, a secret agent operative.

Oscar Movies 2018
Another very usual yet socially powerful film to get the best picture nomination this year is “Get Out”. Jordan Peele who has made in the small screen by his famous comedy show “Key and Peele” makes his debut as a writer and director of this film.
If you’re familiar with Key and Peele then the film “Get Out” is like another one of their social commentary/comedy sketches taken two or three steps too far.
Casual comedic racism depicted in their comedy sketches takes a dark turn in the film when Chris Washington played by Daniel Kaluuya has to meet his girlfriend’s parents.
Daniel’s girlfriend is played by Allison Williams, who introduces Chris to his white family and a barrage of awkward and uneasy conversations ensues.
Film was critically acclaimed when it came out and it also became the first ever debut film directed by an African American director to reach 100 million dollar mark, in its first week.
This film manages to capture the actual evil of racism which plagues our society. It shows us that Nazi’s not only come in an outright violent avatar but many of them are sweet talking and evil scheming tacticians.
“Get Out” has been nominated for 4 Oscar nominations in all the major categories including Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay.
Get out has not only proven the capacity of a Black Comedian artist for Horror writing and direction but it has also changed the horror genre by giving it Oscars Nominations in all the elite categories.
Earlier this genre of film wouldn’t have made it past the category of technical films .
But Jordan Peele’s groundbreaking writing and direction has launched this film straight into the same league as drama.
Both of these films defy the conventional Academy standards and are in their own way groundbreaking. Social commentary seems to be the theme of this year’s Oscars.
Films like “Get Out”, which dictates the social evil which our society encompasses within itself, are much more preferred over traditional drama movies.
Another surprising pick was “Mudbound”, its cinema grapher Rachel Morrison is the first female to be nominated for Best Cinematography. “Mudbound” is also nominated for Best Writier Screenplay.
Mary J. Blige who plays Florence Jackson is nominated for Best Supporting Actress.
In the superhero genre Wonder woman received no Oscar nominations at all and the fan favourite.
The Disaster Artist received only one nomination for Best Writing Adapted Screenplay.
Recent controversies James Franco related to sexual harassment is being seen as the reason for the exclusion of “The Disaster Artist” from any major nomination.
Many Oscar pundits were previously very positive about an Oscar nomination for the said Actor.
But the accusation of Sexual misconduct allegedly snapped that opportunity from his hand.
