  1. The BBC counts 13 nominations for The Shape of Water, compared to 8 for the next most popular nominee; has any previous genre film not only been first but had such a wide margin? And four of those nominations are in the Big Five (by listing and IME by esteem), not just for technical work.

  2. On Body and Soul, one of the Foreign Language finalists, is quite definitely fantasy.

  3. @Chip Hitchcock: For 2001, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring led the nominations with 13, and no other film had more than 8 noms.
