Even last night, after a month of red flags by way of the Golden Globes and the SAG and BAFTA nominations, I felt compelled to argue that the Oscars' push for diversity would result in nominations that saved the season.
"Joker's" nominations include Lead Actor for Joaquin Phoenix, Achievement in Cinematography, Costume Design, Film Editing, Best Picture and Directing.
While announcing the nominees for this year's Oscar's with John Cho, Rae called out the fact that there were no women on the ticket. Also selected in the best actress category are Cynthia Arivo (Harriet), Scarlett Johansson (Marriage Story), Saoirse Ronan (Little Women) and Charlize Theron (Bombshell).
Five works were selected in the category formerly known as best foreign film - renamed this year "international feature film": Corpus Christi (Jan Komasa, Poland), Honeyland (Tamara Kotevska, Ljubomir Stefanov, North Macedonia), Les Miserables (Ladj Ly, France), Pain and Glory (Pedro Almodovar, Spain) and Parasite (Bong Joon Ho, South Korea).
"Klaus" The Netflix animated film about Christmas was nominated for best animated feature. The 92nd Oscars will be held on Sunday, Feb. 9 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, and will be televised live on ABC at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT. ABC will again broadcast the show, viewership for which previous year rose 12% to 29.6 million.
