Oscar Nominations: 2018

Oscars 2018The nominations for the 2018 Oscars have been revealed and there are some notable absentees from the list. Steven Spielberg is missing from the Best Director nod for his work on The Post, which given its favourable reviews and incredible performances, is a little surprising.
