It is Mary J. Blige’s year! On Tuesday morning, the actress officially became an Oscar nominated actress.

The singer picked up two nods for her role in Netflix’s Mudbound; Best Actress in a Supporting Role and Best Original Song for Mudbound’s, “Mighty River.” Joining Mary in the nomination for Best Original Song are Raphael Saadiq and Taura Stinson, who collaborated with the Grammy Award Winner on the track.

The nine time Grammy Award winner also made history first person ever to be nominated for a performance and original song in the same year, for the same film.

The film’s director, Dee Rees, finally got some love by the Academy, picking up a nomination alongside Virgil Williams for Best Adapted Screenplay. The critically acclaimed film also garnered a nomination for Best Cinematography.

Get Out also got major love. The film’s creator and director, Jordan Peele got a nomination for Best Origional Screenplay and Best Director. The film’s star, Daniel Kaluuya, also picked up an Oscar nod for his role in the drama.

Meanwhile, the film itself received a nod in the highest category, Best Picture.

Peele couldn’t contain his excitement, tweeting early Tuesday morning: “I just spoke to Daniel. You know when you’re on the phone trying to disguise the sound of an ugly cry? I failed at that.”

Octavia Spencer snagged a Best Actress in a Supporting Role nomination for The Shape of Water. And from the NBA to the Oscars, Kobe Bryant received a nomination for Best Animated Short Film for Dear Basketball. 

The 90th annual Academy Awards will be hosted live by Jimmy Kimmel from the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on Sunday, March 4 starting at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT on ABC.

And of course, Denzel Washington snagged a Best Actor nod for his role in Roman J. Israel, Esq.
