out ahead of a ceremony on much of fourth that will be watched closely for how the academy reacts to recent events in the movie world the film picking up the most nominations was graham adele toto's friend to see drama at the shape of water. with rule including best picture and director three billboards outside the missouri got seven nominations including best actress for francis mcdormand her portrayal of a mother seek revenge on a sex attack and is seen as topical in the wake of abuse allegations against siena hollywood figures and she'll be up against the short lists which includes ronan in . the go wake film is also nominated for best picture and director allowing the oscars to avoid the old male shortlist of directors that was criticised at the golden globes and off the complaints in recent years of the white house because it was a strong showing for get out which is a horror film satirizing us race relations including
a best director nomination for jordan peele and one consequence of the sex abuse scandals is the presence of christopher plummer among the nominations for best supporting actor in all the money in the world and he took on the role of jump all getty for a reshoot just two months ago after kevin spacey was dropped and well joining us live from los angeles is robert reynolds and rob how much do the nominations reflect what's going on in the movie world right now. well you ran through the list nic i think in addition to kevin spacey being abruptly dropped in the film all the money in the world re shop with. with christopher plummer we could also look at the fact that james franco was kind of critically acclaimed for his lead role in the film disaster artist did not get a nomination so i think that was
a reflection of the fact that in recent weeks he too franco has been. the source of the subject of allegations of sexual harassment. so he's definitely a loser there the three billboards outside evan missouri which got nominated for best picture and also its star frances mcdormand deals with issues of essentially violence against women as well as abusive policing so those are two very topical issues tackled by that movie critic gerwig of course in lady bird. quintessential. tale of a young girl's coming of age a sperry strong female cast there with sharon ronan getting a nomination for best actress and also a picking up a
a best supporting female role for the actress who played her mother and then we've seen the the as you said some strong female female law roles in films like. the shape of water with sally hawkins. a robot of the kind began to write pasting last time around for lack of divesting they shaped up this time. that's right the twenty fifth. it was a bad year for the academy that was the oscars so white hash tag that went went viral dis year we've seen we see a strong racially themed. film get out of the horror movie with that looks at race relations in america and we see no fewer than four acting best acting awards for black actors mary j.
blige octavia spencer daniel and denzel washington in the shape of water which was. directed by a mexican director guillermo toro sally hawkins plays a disabled woman with a with a hearing disability so you have. a large number of. different minorities and conditions expressed in this year's oscar nominations all right that's right reynolds reporting for us in los angeles thanks rob but the man known as the father of south african jazz has done it from prostate cancer. hugh messick you know it was famous for his distinctive afro. crisp and more than five decades he gained international recognition through hits such as so at a blues song that became synonymous with the n.t. apartheid south africa i think you know was seventy eight and speaking to out zero
