'Get Out', 'Shape of Water' and Diversity Win Big in 2018 Oscar Nominations

Jordan Peele's film scoops up four nominations.

The Oscar nominations are out, and it’s a big year for diversity. Get Out scored four nominations, with Jordan Peele getting a nod for directing and Daniel Kaluuya getting recognized for his role as lead actor. Greta Gerwig and Guillermo del Toro also received nominations for their work, leading to a nominations list that looked a lot less white and male than previous years.

At the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills, California, on Tuesday morning, Tiffany Haddish and Andy Serkis read out the nominees for the 90th Academy Awards, set to take place on March 4 with Jimmy Kimmel as host.

Among the other big winners were The Shape of Water, grabbing a stunning 13 nominations. John Williams’ work on Star Wars: The Last Jedi was also recognized, which if he wins would be the first time he’s won an Academy Award since 1993. The Disaster Artist and Logan both received a nod for best adapted screenplay.

The diversity of the nominee list was praised on Twitter:

However, the New York Times also noted on Tuesday that the academy membership remains 87 percent white and 72 percent male, despite an #OscarsSoWhite campaign that launched nearly three years ago.

'Avengers: Endgame' Theory Claims Collecting Infinity Stones Is Unnecessary

Avengers: Endgame theories have been focused on which Infinity Stones might be needed to defeat Thanos, but what if the answer is none of them? An intriguing new theory offers a clever alternative, and injects a time travel subplot into Avengers: Infinity War at the same time.

Redditor u/webdevnoobs1 recently broke down the theory, which hinges on the idea that the Avengers could travel back in time and drain the Infinity Stones of their power without actually taking the stones themselves.

'The Umbrella Academy' Season 2 Release Date, Trailer, Plot, and More

The superheroes of The Umbrella Academy have work to do to save the world.

A new group of superheroes just arrived on Netflix in The Umbrella Academy, and maybe you decided to use the holiday weekend to binge all 10 episodes of Season 1. If you did, you’re probably wondering when you’ll get to see Umbrella Academy Season 2 and the resolution to that insane cliffhanger.

Kylo Ren’s New Helmet in ‘Star Wars: Episode IX’ Might Be a Secret Twist

Everyone assumes Kylo will don his old helmet again, but there could be something much more interesting happening.

Helmets are a big deal in Star Wars. They surround the heads of popular characters, penetrate our psyches, and bind the merchandising galaxy of Lucasfilm together. In some ways, the entire popularity of Star Wars is connected to sweet-looking helmets. Which is why the rumored return of Kylo Ren’s old helmet in Star Wars: Episode IX is such a big deal. In The Force Awakens, Kylo rocked a Darth Vader knock-off helmet, but after getting teased about it by Snoke in The Last Jedi, he broke the thing into little pieces. Now, in leaked photos, it looks like Kylo’s helmet is back for Episode IX, but what if there’s a twist here? What if the helmet is back, but Kylo Ren isn’t wearing it?

Adam Warlock in 'Avengers: Endgame'? Here's What One Marvel Director Said

Speculation that Adam Warlock could appear in Avengers: Endgame cropped up this week, but this isn’t the first we’ve heard of Marvel’s plans for a movie version of the comic book character. Eight hundred years ago Last year, former Guardians of the Galaxy series director James Gunn teased what Adam Warlock’s role would look like in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Prior to his forced exit from the franchise, Gunn had a plan for the cosmic superhero that went beyond Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
