Oscars 2018: Here are the nominations!

Here is the full list of nominations for the Academy Awards 2018

The much-awaited 90th Academy Award nominations for 2018 are finally here! Amidst conflict and a chaotic climate in Hollywood (hint: Harvey Weinstein and the subsequent can of worms), this year's Oscars will be watched by many for what it will stand for.
