"The Irishman" received 10 nominations, including Best Picture, Director (Martin Scorsese), Actor in a Supporting Role (Al Pacino and Joe Pesci), Adapted Screenplay (Steven Zaillian) and Visual Effects. Before we bring out the trope about merit having little to do with race and gender, let's be clear here that we aren't suggesting that nominations be handed out simply for political correctness; we are talking about women and people of colour whose accomplishments in film in the past year should have earned them a spot among the Oscar hopefuls regardless.
Bong Joon Ho's Parasite is the first Korean film ever nominated for an Oscar - and it also makes history by picking up nods in a variety of prestigious categories beyond worldwide film, including best picture, best director and best original screenplay.
Oscar predictions had pointed out to performances by Eddie Murphy in Dolemite Is My Name, Jennifer Lopez in Hustlers, Awkwafina for The Farewell and Lupita Nyong'o in Us, but only one non-white actor was among the Academy's picks: British star Cynthia Erivo, who plays U.S. anti-slavery icon Harriet Tubman in Harriet. That means that all narrative features directed by women combined got three fewer nominations than Joker, a film specifically about a cis white straight man feeling disaffected by society (which ultimately results in violence we are made to cheer for). Roma came close to winning past year, but missed out to Green Book.
"Bombshell", the female-led drama which depicts the sexual harassment scandal that ousted Fox News co-founder Roger Ailes, was a surprise absence from the best picture list.
But in a possible sign of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' increasingly global outlook, "Parasite" became just the sixth non-English language movie to be nominated for both best foreign-language film and best picture. Other documentaries that have been nominated for the same category include "The Cave", "The Edge of Democracy", "For Sama" and "Honeyland". Though The Irishman didn't net as many nominations as Joker did, it's still in the running for some pretty big awards.
"The Irishman" helped Netflix to 24 nominations - the first time it has ever topped the studio count.
Renee Zellweger was nominated for her portrayal of showbiz legend Judy Garland in Judy - for which she also already received a Golden Globe at the beginning of January.
Nominations have been announced in eight categories so far, with the remaining 16 shortlists to follow shortly. "Greta Gerwig will be nominated for director, Lulu Wang for screenplay and Zhao Shuzhen, Song Kang-ho, Awkwafina, Lupita Nyong'o and Eddie Murphy will all get in for acting".
