Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood earns Oscar nod for

Nine films will be in contention for the top prize: Best Picture.

Finally. Get Out writer and director Jordan Peele landed a Best Director nomination for one of the most talked about movies of the year. Still, although the Academy Awards are a chance to celebrate cinema, that doesn't mean we can't poke fun at the nominees a little bit.

He's also the third person to receive best picture, director and writing nods for his first feature film after Warren Beatty ("Heaven Can Wait") and James L. Brooks (Terms of Endearment).

When it comes to the more familiar faces, Streep extended her already-record number of nominations from 20 to 21 as she faces off in the best actress category against McDormand (who's already picked up Globe and SAG Awards), Water's Sally Hawkins, I, Tonya's Margot Robbie and Lady Bird's Saoirse Ronan.

Kaluuya, who is nominated for Get Out, will compete for best actor alongside fellow Britons Gary Oldman and Daniel Day-Lewis for Darkest Hour and Phantom Thread respectively, as well as Call Me By Your Name's Timothee Chalamet and Washington for Roman J Israel Esq. Gerwig is expected to be the fifth woman nominated for an Oscar for best director when the nominations for the 90th annual Academy Awards are announced on Tuesday.

Her co-stars, Richard Jenkins and Octavia Spencer, also earned Best Supporting Actor and Best Supporting Actress nominations for their respective portrayals of Giles and Zelda Fuller. Joining them will be Mary J. Blige (Mudbound), previous victor Octavia Spencer (The Shape of Water) and surprise contender Lesley Manville (Phantom Thread). Christopher Plummer also scored a Best Supporting Actor nomination for a role he didn't even have until a month before the movie opened, when he replaced Kevin Spacey in "All the Money in the World".

- In the acting categories, the biggest absence was James Franco for "The Disaster Artist".

"Three Billboards" director Martin McDonagh was a notable snub in the category, although he did receive a nod for original screenplay for the film.

The Mexican director Guillermo del Toro snagged a nomination for willing The Shape of Water into existence; he won at the Golden Globes.

"Wonder Woman": Despite being one of the highest-grossing films of 2017, Patty Jenkins' acclaimed live-action superhero film was entirely left out of the nominations.

The Shape of Water led all film nominees with 13.

The announcement did include some barrier-busting nominations, though.
