Nominations for
the 91st Academy Awards
were announced
at dawn

Kumail Nanjiani (The Big Sick) and Tracee Ellis Ross (Black-ish) unveiled the list of nominees in the 24 Oscar categories starting at 8:20 a.m. ET/5:20 a.m. PT.

This year, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences nominated eight movies out of a possible ten for were Best Picture, including Marvel’s Black Panther, BlacKkKlansman, Bohemian Rhapsody, The Favourite, Green Book, Roma, A Star is Born and Vice.

The Favourite and Roma led the pack with 10 nominations a piece, while A Star is Born, Vice and Black Panther each scored eight nominations.

Black Panther, which became a part of the zeitgeist, is the first comic book-based film to earn a Best Picture nomination, a real win for the House of Mouse.

According to The Wrap, Roma has tied the record of 10 nominations held by Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon from 2000 for the most nominations received by a foreign language film, and it is also the fifth film to be nominated in both the Best Foreign Language Film and Best Picture categories. Let’s not forget, it is also the first Netflix film to be nominated.

While there are eight are first-time nominees in the acting categories, Yalitza Aparicio in Roma for one, a big snub is Ethan Hawke in Paul Schrader’s First Reformed.

Another noticeable omission is in the Best Director Category where both Bradley Cooper (A Star is Born) and Barry Jenkins (If Beale Street Could Talk) were ignored.

Spike Lee did manage to earn his first Oscar nomination for BlacKkKlansman.

The biggest snub of all came in the Documentary Category where the beloved Won’t You Be My Neighbor, about Mr. Rogers, failed to earn a nomination. The full list of nominations is below:
