British Ugandan, Daniel Kaluuya nominated for Oscars Best Actor, The Shape of Water tops all



The nominees for the 90th Academy Awards have been announced with British-Ugandan actor, Daniel Kaluuya getting a nod for the Best Actor in a leading Role for the movie, ‘Get out’. He achieved international recognition for his performance in the 2017 horror film Get Out, which earned him significant critical acclaim and numerous accolades, also including nominations for a BAFTA Award, a SAG Award, and a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor. Kaluuya was born in London, the son of Ugandan immigrants. He was raised by his mother on a council estate, along with an older sister; his father lived in Uganda, and rarely visited.Kaluuya attended St Aloysius College, London. He lives in West London with his girlfriend, Amandla. Meanwhile Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri netting seven Oscar nominations (including Best Picture, Original Screenplay, and Actress in a Leading Role). The Shape of Water is the most-nominated film, with 13 nominations including Best Picture, Directing, Actress in a Leading Role, and a slew of technical and visual awards. Dunkirk is a close second with eight nods — largely in technical categories, but also Best Picture and Directing.   Greta Gerwig’s directorial debut Lady Bird is nominated five times, and though she was notably passed over by the Golden Globes, she’s the fifth woman in the ceremony’s 90-year history to be nominated for the Directing Oscar. If she wins, she’ll be the second woman to do so. And Mudbound’s Rachel Morrison has already made history this morning as the first woman to ever be nominated in the cinematography category.   Here’s the full list of nominees:   BEST PICTURE Call Me By Your Name Darkest Hour Dunkirk Get Out Lady Bird Phantom Thread The Post The Shape of Water Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri DIRECTING Christopher Nolan — Dunkirk Jordan Peele — Get Out Greta Gerwig — Lady Bird Paul Thomas Anderson — Phantom Thread Guillermo del Toro — The Shape of Water ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY The Big Sick — Emily V.
