The 2018 Oscar nominees have been announced, with some surprising snubs (No I, Tonya or The Florida Project for Best Picture, no Best Actor for James Franco). This has been a solid year for film: if you would have told me a year ago that the film with the most Oscar nominations was a romance between a mute woman and a fish monster, I never would have believed you.
Along with these films comes some incredible fashion! Here are some eyewear highlights from this year’s nominees:
I, Tonya – Best Lead Actress, Supporting Actress, Film Editing
Somehow this was one of those movies where everyone stole the show, from Tonya herself to her clueless bodyguard to her horrific, abusive mother, played with a chilling lack of compassion by Allison Janney. The safe money is on her to take home the Supporting Actress trophy.
Janney’s most memorable fashion accessory (besides the bird): her vintage eyeglasses. Check out a similar frame here.
Call Me By Your Name – Best Picture, Lead Actor, Song, Adapted Screenplay
Italy in 1983 is the backdrop for this quiet and bittersweet love story. The breezy clothes, the gorgeous houses, the sweeping Italian vistas… how could you not want to spend a summer in Italy after watching this?
Baby Driver – Film Editing, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing
A fast-paced action movie that deserved every one of its technical nominations! Each beat of the soundtrack matched the sharp turns, squealing tires and near-misses in this tightly edited caper. And of course, everyone looked great while committing auto theft.
The Disaster Artist – Best Adapted Screenplay
One of the most surprising snubs this year was James Franco not getting recognized for Best Actor. He portrayed real life writer-director Tommy Wiseau in this wacky comedy that takes you behind the scenes of one of the absolute worst movies ever made, The Room. No acting nods, but the film did score a nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay.
Want to replicate Tommy Wiseau’s… um, let’s say unique style? Simple: snag a pair of wrap-around sunglasses, like these Oakleys, and wear them all the time. Oh, and don’t forget to wear at least two to three belts, and don’t tell anyone where your accent is from.
Molly’s Game – Best Adapted Screenplay
Jessica Chastain may have missed a Best Actress nom for her role as a professional skier turned underground poker organizer, but the film’s snappy Sorkin dialog earned it a Best Adapted Screenplay nom.
