This past year marked a shift in the tides for the film industry. While female filmmakers and actresses spoke out against injustices behind the screen, they also contributed beautifully impactful narratives. Multicultural communities presented bolder messaging in cinema than ever before with provocatively relevant pieces of work that will be recognized throughout history.
Displaying the new direction of the entertainment industry, the 2018 Academy Award Nominations were presented by Academy President, John Bailey and 2017's breakout star, Tiffany Haddish (Girls Trip).
