The nominations for the 90th Academy Awards were announced on Jan. 23, with The Shape of Water leading all nominees with 13, which is one shy of the record held by All About Eve, Titanic, and La La Land. World War II drama Dunkirk came in second in the nomination tally with eight, followed by Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri with seven.

As for first-time nominees, there are more than a dozen well-known artists who have never heard their names called on Oscar morning. The best supporting actress category is particularly stacked, with four of the five being first-time nominees (Octavia Spencer is the fifth; she has two previous nominations and one win to her name).

There was also a lot of love thrown Get Out's way, which is nice to see. Jordan Peele is just the fifth African-American nominated for best director and the fourth nominated for best original screenplay. Likewise, Greta Gerwig, who was shut out of a directing nomination from the Golden Globes, is just the fifth woman nominated for best director.

Here are some of the big first-time nominees for the 2018 Academy Awards!
