Netflix And The 2020 Oscars: What You Need To Know

‘Joker’ tops Oscar nominations with 11; ‘Irishman’ scores 10

Cate Blanchett did it in 2008 for "Elizabeth: The Golden Age", and "I'm Not There", Jamie Foxx did it in 2005 for "Ray" and "Collateral", and in 1994 there were two actresses nominated in two categories: Holly Hunter for "The Piano" and "The Firm", and Emma Thompson for "The Remains of the Day" and "In the Name of the Father".

Nevertheless, Erivo - who was also nominated for best original song for Stand Up - said she was honoured to be nominated.

Antonio Banderas, 59, and Jonathan Pryce, 72, have both had long and illustrious careers, but both got their first Oscar nominations Monday.

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.

Despite Oscar recognition for Jordon Peele's directorial debut "Get Out", his sophomore film "Us" was missing from the nominations round up.

In the past 10 years, the only woman nominated was Greta Gerwig in 2017 for Lady Bird. So would nominating Eddie Murphy for Best Actor for "Dolemite" Akwafina for Best Actress for "The Farewell" or Jennifer Lopez for Best Supporting Actress for "Hustlers".


And director Bong Joon Ho's nomination for South Korean film "Parasite" may indicate that foreign films are becoming stronger Oscar contenders.

Oh, how naive I was going into this awards season with hope - truly a risky thing to have when you're a lifelong Oscar geek desperate for a reason to defend an institution that has been increasingly indefensible as of late.

Movie lovers expected films like "Once Upon A Time.In Hollywood" and actresses like Scarlett Johansson to score Oscar nominations, but the "Beyhive" may not be too pleased that Beyoncé did not make the cut.

"The Irishman" helped Netflix to 24 nominations - the first time it has ever topped the studio count. His father, Alfred Newman, won nine Oscars in 43 nominations.

Brad Pitt is up for best supporting actor for Once Upon a Time.in Hollywood.

There really is an Oscar season. But for anyone looking for a change in the makeup of nominees from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, that just means we can get this one over with sooner, and look forward (again) to next year.
