It’s the day you have all been waiting for. The 2019 Oscar nominations were announced this morning and the cast & crew behind Roma, The Favourite, and Black Panther are probably celebrating in their pajamas right now.
Both Roma and The Favourite are tied for most nominations with ten each. Black Panther made history as the first superhero film to ever be nominated for Best Picture. BlacKkKlansman also earned a Best Picture nomination, along with A Star Is Born, Vice, Green Book and Bohemian Rhapsody.
There are no true surprises here. It all looks pretty standard. I suppose it’s a little surprising that Ethan Hawke was not nominated for his performance in ‘First Reformed,’ but he’s been vocal about how silly awards are in the past, so that might have rubbed the Academy the wrong way.
And if you’re looking for another surprise, ‘If Beale Street Could Talk‘ did not get a Best Picture nomination and Barry Jenkins was not nominated for Best Directing. He did get a nom for Best Adapted Screenplay, though…so there is that.
Check out the full list of nominations below. The Oscars will air Feb. 24th on ABC.
