Horror at The 90th Academy Awards – Updated Live

Horror at The 90th Academy Awards – Updated Live

Considered the biggest night in Hollywood, tonight marks the 90th Academy Awards. Traditionally, horror and genre film are rarely recognized for their contributions. Notable exceptions include Silence of the Lambs which won 5 Oscars, including Best Picture, and The Exorcist which took home Best Adapted Screenplay & Best Sound Design after a whopping 10 nominations. This year’s announcement included a huge turnout for genre fans and genre filmmakers with 17 nominations between Guillermo Del Toro’s The Shape of Water and Jordan Peele’s Get Out.

Below are the horror/genre film nominees for the 90th Academy Awards. Winners will be updated as they are announced. Join us on Twitter as we laugh along and live tweet the awards @NOFSpodcast. And don’t forget to chill your champagne before the festivities begin. Based on how well Get Out and The Shape of Water have performed at both the Golden Globes and The Spirit Awards, I have a feeling there will be plenty to cheer this year!
