Best Supporting Animal in Film and Television


On Tuesday, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced the nominees for the 91st Academy Awards, which will be held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on February 24.

This year’s list of nominees prove a few simple facts. The Academy adores Bohemian Rhapsody; A Star Is Born and Green Book are both standout films of 2018; and Emily Blunt may not be getting the recognition she deserves.

There’s one more thing we also know to be true: 2018 was a year of Oscar-worthy performances from animals onscreen. Here are the nominees for the award for 2018’s Best Supporting Animal in Film and Television, which is a category we’ve just now made up.
