Dang - you are right - it is not today.

But Nolan and Emma are there. Nolan is mentioned by some articles. Like this one:

These are great. I hate that I'm rooting against Del Toro in these awards. The guy totally deserves more recognition, I just can't see his directing surpassing Nolan here.

I got a feeling that Baby Driver, Blade Runner 2049, The Shape of Water, and War for the Planet of the Apes will chip away at the technical categories and each take home a win, leaving Dunkirk with a ton of technical nominations (Production Design, Cinematography, Film Editing, Sound Mixing, Sound Editing, Visual Effects) but zero wins/only one win.
