The 2020 Oscar Nominations

The 2020 Oscar Nominations

The 92nd Oscar nominations have just been announced this morning with John Cho and Issa Rae revealing this year’s nominees across twenty-four categories. Final Oscar voting runs from January 30th to February 4th.

“Joker” led the pack with eleven nominations followed by “1917,” “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” and “The Irishman” with ten each ; “Parasite,” “Jojo Rabbit,” “Little Women” and “Marriage Story” scored six and “Ford vs Ferrari” scored four.

“Parasite” scoring a best picture nomination for a subtitled film is seen as major, as is Tom Hanks’ first Oscar nomination in nearly two decades, while the Academy avoids the inevitable ‘OscarsSoWhite’ backlash by nominating Cynthia Erivo.

Major snubs include no Jennifer Lopez for “Hustlers,” no “Frozen II” for best animated feature, no Pedro Almodovar for “Pain and Glory,” no Adam Sandler for “Uncut Gems,” no Taron Egerton for “Rocketman,” no mention of “The Farewell” and more.
