The 90th Academy Awards to be held on Sunday, March 4, feature a list of very deserving nominees and some very “too-close-to-call” races in some of the major categories. Guillermo del Toro’s “The Shape of Water” leads the field with 13 nominations. Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk” follows with eight nominations, and Martin McDonagh’s “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” garnered seven nominations.
