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)

“The Disaster Artist,” Best Adapted Screenplay, adapted by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber

“Logan,” Best Adapted Screenplay, adapted by Michael Green and James Mangold

“Molly’s Game,” Best Adapted Screenplay, adapted by Aaron Sorkin

“Icarus,” Best Documentary Feature, directed by Bryan Fogel

“Coco,” Animated Feature Film, directed and conceived by Lee Unkrich

“Dunkirk,” Best Original Score, Hans Zimmer

“This Is Me” from “The Greatest Showman on Earth,” Best Original Song, by Benj Pasek & Justin Paul
