"For 25 years, I've been preaching that the dark poetry and emotion of my stories are fairytales for modern times", Mexican director del Toro told Reuters.
Though many minorities were still absent from the acting categories, the film academy, which has worked to diversify its membership, put forward a field of nominees nearly as diverse as last year when "Moonlight", "Fences" and "Hidden Figures" powered a rebuttal to the "OscarsSoWhite" backlash of the two years prior.
Del Toro's The Shape Of Water is in with a shout of becoming the film to win the most Oscars ever. Three Billboards looks to have been hurt by a surge of support for Phantom Thread, the supposed final film of Oscar favorite Daniel Day-Lewis, who got a best actor nod.
The film hit Mexican cinemas two weekends ago, rising to the top of the domestic box office and earning 61.2 million pesos (just under USA $3.5 million) on its opening weekend.
This year's Academy Awards take place on March 4 at Hollywood's Dolby Theater. Though it shoved aside Best Picture nominees "Dunkirk" and "The Shape of Water" for its spot, the film failed to get a Makeup/Hairstyling mention like the first installment did.
Until we are no longer lauding "firsts" after a 90 year history, until we can no longer count a traditionally underrepresented community's number of nominations in a particular category on our fingers, #OscarsSoWhite remains relevant.
Alumni from two local universities nominated for Oscars
"Call Me By Your Name" bagged four nominations, including Best Actor nod for Timothee Chalamet making him the youngest actor at 22 to be receive the recognition.
Harvey Weinstein, the ultimate impresario of the Oscars campaign, has again reshaped the Academy Awards - though in a way that he could hardly have anticipated while at the zenith of his power and influence.
One of the "firsts" she was alluding to was Rachel Morrison, who became the first woman ever to be nominated for Best Cinematography, for the beautifully shot "Mudbound". With Gerwig's Directors Guild nomination and her Critics' Choice Awards nomination for this film - which is her solo directorial debut by the way - her chances are definitely good for the win. The World War II epic, thus far little-honored in Hollywood's awards season, emerged especially strong with Oscar voters, taking eight nominations, many of them in technical categories.
The nominees for best supporting actor include: Willem 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") and Sam Rockwell ("Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri").
The Disaster Artist did score an Oscar nomination for best adapted screenplay. He can now tack on another descriptor: Oscar nominee for best picture. Or it's The Shape of Water, an adult fairytale that asks for love in a troubled time. Serkis said, "I think we should both do it". Some were even upset that Logan didn't get nominated for more categories!
Disney's blockbuster live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast starring Harry Potter's own Hermione Granger, Emma Watson scored nods for Best Production Design as well as Best Costumes.
Some observers might point to the the nominees in the Best Supporting Actor and Best Actress categories still being entirely comprised of white people as evidence that there is still much to do.
