And the most-discussed Oscar nominees on Facebook are...
Meryl Streep, Denzel Washington, and 'The Shape of Water' lead the pack on the social media platform
Hollywood will crown its Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Picture winners during the 90th Academy Awards on Sunday, but Facebook is unveiling its own set of winners this Oscars season.
The social media platform has released its list of most-discussed nominees in those categories, EW can report exclusively.
The Shape of Water topped the conversation for Best Picture nominees, belying its status as a heavy favorite to take home the top prize on Sunday evening. Christopher Nolan’s war epic Dunkirk took second place, while Call Me By Your Name was the third most-discussed nominee.
Though Denzel Washington has not been a large part of the critical conversation this year when it comes to the Best Actor nominees, he remains a favorite among fans, coming in at No. 1 among the most-discussed nominees in that category. Oscar frontrunner Gary Oldman came in second, while Daniel Day-Lewis ranked third for what is likely his final onscreen performance.
Meryl Streep holds the record for most Oscar acting nominations with 21, and she proves just as popular with fans, taking the top spot among most-discussed Best Actress nominees. Margot Robbie, who has earned raves for her decades-spanning portrayal of Tonya Harding, came in second, while Oscar frontrunner Frances McDormand took third place.
