Water Shaping Up

The Shape of Water is shaping up to have a big night during this year’s Oscars as the Guillermo del Toro-directed film scored 13 nominations. Here’s a rundown of all the movies up for Academy Awards.

+ Rachel Morrison just became the first woman ever nominated in the best cinematography category.

+ Shoutout to my pals at the Center for Investigative Reporting who co-produced the well-done (and well-timed) short documentary, Heroin(e).
