Most of this year’s favourites showed up – Joker, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, The Irishman, Marriage Story.

Oscars 2020Joker Leads Nominee List With 11 Nods Nominees for this year’s Oscars were announced today and the slate is predictably unpredictable. While Greta Gerwig (Little Women) was overlooked for a directing nod (the awards season has been, once again, criticised for lack of diversity), so was Marriage Story director Noah Baumbach, generally considered a shoo-in. Two Golden Globe winners were shut out – The Farewell star Awkwafina’s name went missing in the Best Actress list and Taron Egerton didn’t make the Best Actor cut for his role as Elton John in Rocketman. Jennifer Lopez was ignored in the Best Supporting Actress category for her acclaimed performance in Hustlers and the Best Animated Feature list stood out for two big omissions – neither Frozen II nor The Lion King made it.

So who did make it? Joker leads the pack with 11 nominations, Once Upon A Time In HollywoodThe Irishman and 1917 follow with 10, Marriage Story, Little Women, Jojo Rabbit and Parasite have six each. The acting categories read like who’s who lists – Al Pacino vs Tom Hanks vs Anthony Hopkins vs Joe Pesci vs Brad Pitt (and that’s not even the Best Actor category). Scarlett Johansson scored two nods – Best Actress for Marriage Story and Best Supporting Actress for Jojo Rabbit. Golden Globe winners Joaquin Phoenix, Renee Zellweger and Laura Dern showed up in the Best Actor, Actress and Supporting Actress slates (Brad Pitt won the Globe for Supporting Actor).

The nominations were announced in Los Angeles by actors John Cho and Issa Rae. India’s Oscar entry for the year, the Zoya Akhtar-directed Gully Boy, failed to make the shortlist of 10 last month.

The Oscars, host-less for the second year in a row, will be held on February 9, early morning February 10 for India.
