‘Call Me By Your Name’ earns four Oscar nominations, Timothee Chalamet reacts to the nominations

The nominations for the 90th Academy Awards have been announced.

Guillermo Del Toro’s The Shape of Water leads the show with a whopping 13 nominations, including Best Picture.

After missing out at the Golden Globe awards, acclaimed gay drama, Call Me By Your Name, earned four nominations – Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Original Song.

22 year-old Timothee Chalamet, nominated for Best Actor in his role as 17-year-old Elio, officially became the youngest actor to score the nomination in almost 80 years.

“Wow, what an incredible morning. I’m a bit in shock. The feeling of gratitude I have at the moment has less to do with individual achievement and more with the appreciation for the artists past honored in this category and all of the nominees of this year,” Timothee told Entertainment Weekly. “I am in awe of the pedigree of the Academy. I am truly honored.”

He went on to say, “Without Luca [Guadagnino]’s true mastery and vision, and without Armie [Hammer]’s trust and guidance, without the public arts funding that made my high school education at LaGuardia possible, I wouldn’t be in this position. Thank you to those that made this possible, and the Academy, for this recognition.”

Armie Hammer, Michael Stulhbarg and Luca Guadagnino all missed out on nominations for Best Supporting Actor and Best Director respectively. Armie had previously admitted to Metro.co.uk that the schmoozing and selling of yourself required to win over Academy members wasn’t his thing – “I know how much work that takes and I know the kind of work you have to do… That’s not why I got I got this business” – but his snub still left many confused.

Academy members overlooked Stulhbarg twice this year, for The Shape Of Water and also Call Me By Your Name, in which he played the heartbroken Elio’s father.

      No it’s not. We already know who’s winning the best actor statue this year. He’s neither black nor gay and when he does win it’ll be WELL deserved.
