The 2018 Jewish Nominees For Oscars In Major Categories

It’s shaping up to be a Jew-ish year at the Oscars, with chosen nominees in several of the major categories. But the recognition for other minority and oppressed groups — surprise attention in the top categories for “The Big Sick,” “Get Out,” and “Lady Bird” alongside the very Jewish “Call Me By Your Name” — is a true pleasure. The Oscars will air on Sunday night, March 4, on ABC. Until then, here are the major nominations that honor Jewish artists:

Daniel Day Lewis, “Phantom Thread,” Best Actor

Timothée Chalamet, “Call Me By Your Name,” Best Actor

“Call Me By Your Name,” Best Picture

“The Post,” Best Picture (Directed by Steven Spielberg and co-written by Josh Singer)
