Designers will have their work cut out for them. Nominations today were announced for the 90th Academy Awards, and as expected, Margot Robbie and Saoirse Ronan earned Best Actress nominations, as did Frances McDormand, Sally Hawkins and record-holder Meryl Streep. So far, McDormand has swept the Golden Globes, Critic’s Choice and SAG Awards, and Ronan took home a Golden Globe, which is divided in drama and comedy categories.

The Supporting Actress field was filled by veteran entertainers Mary J. Blige, Allison Janney, Lesley Manville, Laurie Metcalfe and Octavia Spencer.

Also in an awards season dominated by the #TimesUp movement, “Lady Bird” writer and director Greta Gerwig made history by becoming only the fifth woman to be nominated for Best Director in 90 years, and Rachel Morrison is the first female director of photography ever to be nominated for Best Cinematography for her work in “Mudbound.”

The Best Actor category was a combination of newcomers Timothée Chalemet and Daniel Kaluuya, and veterans (and past winners) Daniel Day-Lewis and Denzel Washington, along with this year’s Golden Globes and SAG Awards winner Gary Oldman.
