The 90th Academy Awards are set to air on March 4, leaving plenty of time for fans to speculate who might win. Nominations have been announced, and this award season is becoming more unpredictable as it goes on.

It might be unpredictable, but it comes with a clear front runner. With thirteen nominations, “The Shape of  Water” leads with the most nominations, including best picture and best original screenplay. Other movies nominated in the best  picture category include films like “Darkest Hour” and “Call Me By Your Name”.

Not only is the race highly unpredictable, it is breaking racial barriers. Jordan Peele, director of “Get Out”,  is the fifth African-American director to be nominated for best director. The director of “Lady Bird” Greta Gerwig is the fifth woman to be nominated in the best director category.  Supporting actress Octavia Spencer also became the first African-American to receive multiple nominations after winning an Oscar.

The accounting firm that calculates the ballots is also taking measures to avoid another envelope mix-up like last year. Jimmy Kimmel is returning to host the Academy Awards, which air on ABC on March 4.
