Over the past few weeks our team, partners, and friends have been voting their butts off for the 2018 Odyssey Awards. It’s been nail-bitingly close the whole process, but now we’re excited to finally share with you our nominations! We included a few new categories this year, including Best Stunt, Voice Acting, Documentary, and Foreign Language Film due to how strongly some last year’s offerings were.

All of our nominations are based on 2018 UK release dates, therefore making the likes of The Shape of Water, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, and Lady Bird eligible for nomination. Unfortunately, this means this year’s favourites such as The Favourite and Eighth Grade are not.

First Man and Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse are both up for a jaw-dropping 10 awards this year. Following closely behind is Alfonso Cuarón’s Roma with 9 nominations, including Best Film, Foreign Language Film, Netflix Original, and Director. Also popular with our team and partners were Hereditary, coming in third for most nominations with 8, and A Star Is Born and Widows are both up for 6 awards each.

The Odyssey Awards 2018 will take place on Friday 1st February on Twitter!
