Nominees for the 90th Academy Awards were announced Tuesday morning and LOGAN writers Scott Frank, James Mangold and Michael Green received a nomination for “Adapted Screenplay,” making it the first time a superhero (but not comic book) film has been nominated in this category. It will compete with Call Me By Your Name, The Disaster Artist, Molly’s Game and Mudbound.
The ceremony will air live on Sunday, March 4th at 8pm EST / 7pm CST / 5pm PST on ABC.
X-Men fans are elated by this news and sharing their love on social media, but some are also disappointed the film didn’t get more recognition. But first, here’s what a few of the Logan crew had to say:
Wow. I am thrilled! Thank you all, for the lovely tweets! https://t.co/wyLpzAIpgg

Don't know if everything happens for a reason, but sometimes you do get lucky.

If Hollywood kept statistics for the most assists in nominations/awards … @mang0ld would be the league leader. Today, he finally got the recognition he deserves. Congrats brother! @WolverineMovie #Logan #Wolverine #Oscars2018 pic.twitter.com/Zp2CDo9mCA

#Logan being nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay really made my day ❤️ but I also wanted the man who gave 17 years of his life for this Character to be awarded as well with some recognition.
We Love You Hugh. We owe it to you and you will always be our Wolverine #OscarNoms pic.twitter.com/xd6Lq82mdD

If you think #Logan getting a nom is terrible for women watch the movie again. It's entirely about passing yhe mantle of the most well known characters in Marvel history to a Mexican girl who fights hard and kickass. pic.twitter.com/si5prsZXHS

Congratulations to #Logan for its #AcademyAward nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay! I was honestly hoping it would get nominated for best picture, actor and supporting actor/actress. It was a masterpiece, in my opinion. But hey, this one will do! #Oscars2018 pic.twitter.com/AaISsaBW6u

#Logan is the first Superhero film to be nominated for an #AcademyAward in a writing category… Ever! Thank you @mang0ld @20thcenturyfox @RealHughJackman @DafneKeen and company for a damn good, emotional film! So well deserved! pic.twitter.com/oNszQ2EcXN

If you're ragging on #Logan because you're mad about #WonderWoman not getting any Oscar nods, don't look at me. I wanted Patrick Stewart to get a Supporting nod very badly. Dafne Keen was amazing. Direction & cinematography, superb. I cried a lot. Amazing film. pic.twitter.com/kNopLnpvs1

Listen…#Logan deserved best picture, best actor, and best supporting noms. You know it, I know it, everyone knows it and i will be creating a fight club for anyone who wants to fight me on this.

“Based on characters from X-Men comic books and theatrical motion pictures.”
This sentence at the high and mighty Academy Awards. THAT brings me joy. #Logan

Very disappointed. Both @WolverineMovie and @GreatestShowman deserved more love, honestly. @RealHughJackman was an amazing actor in both movies! @TheAcademy Get this man an oscar! #OscarNoms #Logan #Greatestshowman

Highly unusual a superhero comic film nominated for #Oscar other than in technical category #Logan @WolverineMovie up for Adapted Screenplay could've even been included in Best Picture too; congratulations @RealHughJackman @mang0ld Scott Frank Michael Green
