2018 Gold Derby Film Awards nominations: ‘The Shape of Water’ leads with 14, ‘Call Me by Your Name’ next with 11

The 2018 Gold Derby Film Awards nominations were announced on Thursday, February 1, and “The Shape of Water” leads the way with 14 bids. That’s probably not a surprise since the Cold War-era fairy tale was also the most nominated film at the Golden Globes, Critics’ Choice Awards, BAFTAs and Oscars. These nominations were determined by more than 2,000 awards-savvy Gold Derby users who entered their choices for the best films of the year. Watch our video announcement of all the nominees above, and scroll down for the complete list.

“The Shape of Water” contends for Best Picture, Best Director (Guillermo Del Toro), Best Actress (Sally Hawkins), Best Supporting Actress (Octavia Spencer), Best Original Screenplay and Best Ensemble Cast. It also competes for its cinematography, costume design, film editing, makeup and hairstyling, production design, sound, score and visual effects. Missing from our list is Oscar nominated supporting actor Richard Jenkins, but only two out of the five academy choices matched our users’ picks in that race.

Call Me by Your Name” comes in second overall with an impressive 11 nominations, which is perhaps surprising given the smaller-scale intimacy of its love story between a teenager and a grad student. It’s up for Best Picture and Best Actor (Timothee Chalamet) just like at the Oscars, but our voters avenged its Oscar-snubbed director Luca Guadagnino, supporting actors Armie Hammer and Michael Stuhlbarg, the SAG Awards-snubbed ensemble cast and both Sufjan Stevens songs, “The Mystery of Love” and “Visions of Gideon.” It was a great result for Chalamet all over our ballot as he’s also nominated for Best Breakthrough Performer and is a member of two nominated ensemble casts (“Call Me” and “Lady Bird”).

Also performing well beyond its Oscars haul is the acclaimed sci-fi sequel “Blade Runner 2049” with nine nominations. It contends for Best Picture, and though its director Denis Villeneuve missed the cut the film did grab a nom for its adapted screenplay and a slew of craft categories below the line.

Dunkirk” received eight nominations, followed by “Lady Bird” and “Get Out” with six apiece, including Best Picture and Best Director for all three. Rounding out our 10 nominees in the top category are “Baby Driver,” “The Florida Project,” “I, Tonya” and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.”

Our users also went their own way by nominating the supporting performances of Tiffany Haddish (“Girls Trip”) and Patrick Stewart (“Logan”), and a few other films that the academy dissed, like the animated film “The Lego Batman Movie,” the documentary “Jane” and the foreign film “BPM (Beats Per Minute).” So who else did our users invite to the party?
