I love award show season. There's something mesmerizing about the glitz and glam of the red carpet. I also love watching and catching snippets of the films so that I know what movies to catch up on. As a mom to two boys, I definitely don't have the time I used to have to go to the theater, but I try my best to at least make it through the Best Picture nominees each year. Recently, the nominees for the Oscars were finally announced and now I have a huge list of movies to track down.

Guillermo del Toro's "The Shape of Water" received 13 nominations with "Dunkirk" and "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" coming in second and third with 8 and 7 nominations respectively. All three films received Best Picture nominations. Other nominees for the category include: "Call Me By Your Name", "Darkest Hour", "Get Out", "Lady Bird", "Phantom Thread", and "The Post".

If you're wanting to grab a tub of popcorn and settle in for one of these films, you're in luck: all 9 nominated movies are still playing in theaters throughout the Treasure Valley.

  • You can still catch "The Shape of Water" at The Flicks, Edwards Downtown, and Edwards Nampa this week.
  • "Call Me By Your Name" is currently playing at Edwards Boise (off Overland) and The Flicks.
  • "Lady Bird" is available for viewing at Edwards Boise (off Overland), Edwards Nampa, and The Flicks.
