The nominations for the 90th annual Academy Awards were announced just moments ago.

Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water film leads the pack with 13 nominations in total (including Best Picture). Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri has nine nominations in total.

However, there's no clear front runner for Best Picture at this point. 

Most predict the award should come down to Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Misouri or The Shape of Water. Of course, nothing is a guarantee when it comes to predicting Oscar winners.
