The 2018 Oscars ceremony is set for Sunday with “The Shape of Water” leading the field with 13 nominations.
This year, as the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences celebrates 90 years of presenting awards, officials say they have taken extra precautions to avoid a repeat of last year’s drama when the wrong movie was announced as the winner of the best picture award.
“The Shape of Water,” along with “Dunkirk,” which has eight nominations, and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” with seven nods, are among a field of nine that areup for the best picture award.
Daniel Day-Lewis, who starred in “Phantom Thread,” and Daniel Kaluuya who starred in “Get Out,” are among the favorites for best actor.
