Academy Award Nominations Led By Joker!

Good morning everyone! Bright and early, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences unleashed their Oscar nominations upon the world. As always, the Academy had a ton of snubs and surprises, since after all, this is the Oscars. Still, they stuck perhaps even more to their guns than we might have expected, considering the short voting window and unusual year that we’ve had so far. What that means for Phase Two now that Phase One is over, well…that remains to be seen. This morning, we’re just going to focus on the nominees and take in who now will be contending at the 92nd Academy Awards next month.

Below you can see the entire group of nominations by the Academy (updating shortly), but the field was led by 1917 from Sam Mendes, The Irishman from Martin Scorsese, Joker from Todd Phillips, and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood from Quentin Tarantino. In fact, Joker fared the best overall, receiving eleven citations. Next in line was 1917, The Irishman, and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood with ten, giving a quartet of films double digit nomination totals. Other titles that had a good start to their day included Jojo Rabbit, Little Women, Marriage Story, and Parasite, each with a half dozen citations apiece. These eight movies joined Ford v Ferrari as the nine Best Picture nominees. Read on for more…
