The 2019 Oscar Nominations Are Here: Black Panther, Roma and The Favourite Lead Nominations

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.

Last Week Tonight Host John Oliver Slams The Academy For Not Doing Enough After It Expelled Harvey Weinstein (VIDEO)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XPqko6Q0lpE

If you haven’t heard, the Academy had an emergency meeting over the weekend on the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault scandal. It didn’t take long for the members to vote for Weinstein’s expulsion. It’s only the second time in the organization’s history that such a punishment has been handed out to one of its members.

And while many people were pleased with the decision, Last Week Tonight host John Oliver pointed out how hypocritical the Academy is, and slammed them for not doing enough.

“Yes, finally! The group that counts among its current members Roman Polanski, Bill Cosby, and Mel Gibson has found the one guy who treated women badly and kicked him out. So, congratulations, Hollywood! See you at the next Oscars where – and this is true – Casey Affleck will be presenting Best Actress.”

For those who don’t know, Casey Affleck was hit with a couple of sexual harassment lawsuits in 2010. He has denied any wrongdoing, but the same can be said for most abusers. They’re not going to admit it.

Oliver’s point is fair. Why did the Academy take such drastic measures with Weinstein? Because they were under intense pressure from the public. They should have this attitude toward all of the abusers in Hollywood. These decisions shouldn’t be made simply because the dirty business is out in the open.
