The Oscar nominations for 2018 have landed. Here's everything you need to know.

Nominations for the 2018 Oscars have been announced and this year, Hollywood is near unrecognisable.

A handful of kick-arse women are nominated for playing powerful female characters – including our very own Margot Robbie for her performance in I, Tonya. 

As well as this, James Franco is noticeably absent from the Best Actor category, amid allegations of sexual misconduct.

And three of the films nominated for Best Original Screenplay feature female leads, including Lady Bird, The Shape of Water and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

The awards will be handed out on March 4 at a ceremony in Los Angeles hosted by comedian Jimmy Kimmel.
