The Golden Globes may have kicked off award season in 2018, but now it's time to move up to the major leagues. We are just a few weeks away from this year's Academy Awards ceremony, and there remains no major front-runner in the race. We fully expect that to continue for the foreseeable future, but at the very least we now know which movies are in contention.

The official list of nominations for the 2018 Academy Awards have been announced, and, just like every year, it's a list of "No-duhs" and "Whoas!" You can check out all of the categories below, and stay tuned all day here on CinemaBlend for our coverage regarding our thoughts and expectations.
