The 2019 Oscar Nominations

The 2019 Oscar Nominees

This year’s Oscar nominations have been announced via a direct streaming broadcast live this morning. “Roma” and “The Favourite” led the field with ten nominations each followed by eight for “Vice” and “A Star Is Born,” seven for “Black Panther,” six for “BlacKkKlansman,” five for “Green Book” and “Bohemian Rhapsody,” and four for “First Man”. “Black Panther” made history being the first superhero film to score a best picture nomination.

Surprises? “First Reformed” only scoring one nomination (screenplay) after winning so much elsewhere, “First Man” missing out on score, the incredible love the Academy has for the critically divisive “Vice,” no mention of the Mr. Rogers doco “Won’t You Be My Neighbour” let alone “The Rider” or “Burning” or “Leave No Trace,” the surprise inclusion of “Never Look Away” for several nominations, no Bradley Cooper direction for “A Star is Born,” and the return of both “First Man” and “BlackKKlansman” back into the awards race after seemingly being left behind.
