With the revelry in full swing, the prestigious Academy Awards or Oscars 2018, will officially begin from today (23 January).

In a crowded field, it also saw off The Big Sick, Molly's Game, The Post, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, and Wonder Woman. "Get Out" is a landmark genre-bending film about racism, and for many a vital film for the Donald Trump era.

Other media reports speculate that films like The Disaster Artist, Get Out, The Greatest Showman, I, Tonya and Lady Bird could be nominated in the best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy category. The categories that will gather the most attention, including Best Picture, Directing, Actors and Actresses in a Leading or Supporting Role and Adapted or Original Screenplay, will be announced about 16 minutes later. Christopher Plummer, who replaced Kevin Spacey in Ridley Scott's "All the Money in the World", may sneak into the best supporting actor category just two months after shooting his last-minute performance.

Last year, the actress made her Hollywood debut with the film adaptation of the popular TV series, "Baywatch" in the role of the antagonist Victoria Leeds. Much will hinge on how the academy receives "Get Out". The film is incredibly well directed, and the acting is impeccable.

"Moonlight", "Hidden Figures" and "Fences" last year offered a reprieve from two straight years of #OscarsSoWhite online protests.

Can the Oscars top the Globes?

The Oscars nominations and overall ceremony come amid a national reckoning concerning sexual harassment and assault in Hollywood and other industries around the country.

The Golden Globes are usually a frothy kind of dress rehearsal for the main event. Though she is not new to the awards ceremony as this will be her fourth consecutive year on the red carpet, it is going to be her first more-active role in the workings.

But the Oscars will lack one element the Globes had: Oprah.
