Oscar 2020: ‘Joker’ Leads with 11 Nominations!! Check Out the Full List!!

Oscar nominations for the 92nd Academy Awards have been announced. Joker leads the crop of contenders with 11 nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director for Todd Phillips. The gritty Warner Bros. drama has been considered an awards contender ever since it won the top prize at the Venice Film Festival, and it’s now made it all the way up to the Academy Awards. Close behind we have The Irishman, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and 1917 10 nominations each, including Best Picture, Director, and corresponding screenplay nominations.

Greta Gerwig‘s Little Women scored six nominations including Best Actress for Saoirse Ronan, Supporting Actress for Florence Pugh, and Adapted Screenplay for Gerwig, but unfortunately the Lady Bird filmmaker was pointedly left out of the Best Director field. When announcing the Best Director nominees, actress Issa Rae said, “Congratulations to those men.” Yup.

But there were delightful inclusions to be found. Parasite picked up a total of six nominations as well, including Best Director for Bong Joon-hoCynthia Erivo nabbed a nomination for Harriet, and Antonio Banderas rightfully scored a Best Actor nod for his excellent turn in Pedro Almodovar‘s Pain and GloryAnd how about Rian Johnson earning a Best Original Screenplay nomination for Knives Out?

As for snubs, I’ll be delving into that a bit closer in a separate piece, but most glaringly Jennifer Lopez missed the cut for a Best Supporting Actress nomination for Hustlers, and Disney cannot be happy about Frozen II being left out in the cold in the Best Animated Feature category (although the film is on its way to cracking the Top 10 all-time box office, so they won’t cry too hard).

The telecast will be going hostless for the second year in a row, though this time on purpose. Last year Kevin Hart’s abrupt exit/firing left the producers with too little time to find a replacement, but in the end the hostless show drew positive notices and succeeded in cutting down on the show’s length—a goal producers had a hard time scoring. Luckily this year there have been no controversial category announcements—no additions nor subtractions—but we are on the most streamlined schedule in history, so that could result in a few surprises. We’re now less than four weeks away from the actual ceremony, which gives voters only a couple of weeks to thumb through these nominees and choose the winners.

Check out the full list of 2020 Oscar nominations below. The 92nd Academy Awards will air live on ABC on February 9th.
