Oscars: Saoirse Ronan receives fourth Academy Award nomination

Much of the focus so far this award season has been on the lack of women and ethnic minority filmmakers honoured

Actor and producer John Cho and actress/writer/producer Issa Rae will host the 92nd Annual Academy Awards nominations announcement on Monday, January 13th.

All four of those films are nominated for best picture, alongside Ford V Ferrari, released in the United Kingdom as Le Mans '66, Jojo Rabbit, Little Women, Marriage Story and Parasite.

Instead, the Academy went with all men, nominating Martin Scorsese for "The Irishman", Quentin Tarantino for "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood", Bong Joon Ho for "Parasite", Sam Mendes for "1917" and Todd Phillips for "Joker".

According to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the nominations will be revealed in two parts and will end approximately at 8:41 a.m.

"Congratulations to those men", said Rae, after reading those nominations.

The Tomlin family then answered correctly saying, "Spinach, Gerry!" 'Our survey says you got that right. The question referred to the cartoon character Popeye , not the fast food restaurant.

Only one woman has ever won the award in the Academy's 92-year history - Kathryn Bigelow in 2009 for The Hurt Locker.

Notably, the Director's Guild of America awards' best feature film category, the nominations for which were announced last week, also included an all-male lineup. In the Animated Feature Film and International Feature Film categories, nominees are selected by a vote of multi-branch screening committees. "Little Women" was also nominated for best picture and individual nominations were earned by Saoirse Ronan and Florence Pugh.

Gerwig did pick up a Best Adapted Screenplay nomination earlier in the announcements, with Rae giving her a nice shout out for making the list. "Little Women" was also nominated for best original score and best costume design.

But now she's in the running for the most prestigious accolade, as well as still being in with a chance to take home a Bafta for her role as Jo March in Greta Gerwig's adaption of Louisa May Alcott's 1868 novel.

1917's 10 nods include best picture, best director, best original screenplay, best achievement in visual effects and best achievement in sound editing.
