In addition to its Best Picture nomination, WEST SIDE STORY is nominated for Best Director, Supporting Actress (Ariana DeBose), Cinematography, Production Design, Costume Design, and Sound.

Directed by Academy Award winner Steven Spielberg, from a screenplay by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner Tony Kushner, WEST SIDE STORY tells the classic tale of fierce rivalries and young love in 1957 New York City.

“It’s a dazzling display of filmmaking craft that also feels raw, unsettled and alive. Rather than embalming a classic with homage or aggressively reinventing it, Spielberg, Kushner, Peck and their collaborators…have rediscovered its breathing, thrilling essence.” —A.O. Scott, New York Times
