For its late breaking introduction into the 2017 awards game, Phantom Thread had a surprisingly strong showing in the Academy Award nominations that were announced this morning. The film was nominated for six awards total and here are the categories:
Best Director - Paul Thomas Anderson
Best Lead Actor - Daniel Day-Lewis
Best Supporting Actress - Lesley Manville
Best Original Score - Jonny Greenwood
Best Costume Design - Mark Bridges
Some may be careful to note this is somewhat of an inversion of what PTA has historically enjoyed from the AMPAS -- frequently getting love for his screenplays and, regrettably, not much else. Phantom Thread, however, did not receive a nod for Best Original Screenplay and will instead compete for the other, equally big enchiladas listed above, stinging omissions for Vicky Krieps and Dylan Tichenor notwithstanding.
Here is a complete list of all nominees for the upcoming Oscars ceremonies, if you're interested.
Statuettes will be handed out on Sunday, March 4, 2018 -- between now and then, it's fingers crossed.
