How To Watch The Oscar Nominations Online

Adrian Cunningham | 14 January, 2020, 01:23

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.

Todd Phillips' much-debated supervillain origin story and R-rated box-office smash "Joker" topped all films with 11 Academy Awards nominations, while Martin Scorsese's elegiac crime epic "The Irishman", Quentin Tarantino's 1960s Los Angeles fairy tale "Once Upon a Time.in Hollywood" and Sam Mendes' World War I tale "1917" all trailed close behind with 10 nods apiece.

This year's ceremony, like last year's, will not have an overall host.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed the nominations for this year's award show on Monday.

Issa Rae Calls Out Oscars For Snubbing Women In Best Director Category
Lulu Wang could have been nominated for The Farewell, which would have made her the first woman of Asian descent to be nominated. Previously, Saoirse Ronan was nominated for the Best Actress category for Brooklyn in 2016 and Lady Bird in the year 2018.

"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.
