How To Watch The Oscar Nominations Online

The Oscars have never been ideal and never will be.

The 92nd Academy Awards will be held in Los Angeles on 9 February.

Oh, how naive I was going into this awards season with hope - truly a unsafe 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.

Another Netflix movie, "Marriage Story", received six nominations - Best Picture, Actor in a Leading Role (Adam Driver), Actress in a Leading Role (Scarlett Johansson), Actress in a Supporting Role (Laura Dern), Original Screenplay (Noah Baumbach) and Original Score (Randy Newman). She should have been nominated for "Lost in Translation" in 2003, near the dawn of her career.

If "Parasite" won best picture, it would be the first foreign language film to do so.

In the 90-year history of the Oscars, only five female directors have gotten a nomination in the category, with Gerwig preceded by Lina Wertmuller, Jane Campion, Sofia Coppola and Kathryn Bigelow.

Women and gays have been propping up the Oscars ratings for decades, and you just dared to deny us both a Beyoncé performance and the ability to say the words "Academy Award nominee Jennifer Lopez"? People upset by these omissions were allowing fandom and politics to delude them.

Ford's vehicle sales in China tumble for third consecutive year
BYD Auto, one of the world's biggest electric vehicle brands by sales volume, said 2019 deliveries fell 11.4 percent to 461,399. Ford sold 567,854 vehicles last year in China, down 26.1 percent from a year earlier, the company said in a statement Monday.

With her best actress nod for Little Women, Saiorse Ronan has been nominated for four Oscars despite being just 25. This is still an institution that almost a century in has only given one woman and zero Black filmmakers a best director win and has still yet to ever give an openly LGBTQ actor (no Jodie Foster and Kevin Spacey do not retroactively count) an award, none of which will change this year. Awkwafina also won a Golden Globe for her performance in The Farewell but was still ignored.

How can all this acclaim somehow be construed as a snub to Gerwig?

Nevertheless, Erivo - who was also nominated for best original song for Stand Up - said she was honoured to be nominated. Ditto for Taika Waititi ("Jojo Rabbit") and James Mangold ("Ford v Ferrari"); both are up for Best Picture but not Best Director. Ever Academy Award nomination list has its set of snubs, and Little Women director Greta Gerwig was one.

Which of the other movies and actors would you bounce as nominees to make room for them? Is the omission of Lopez, Murphy and Sandler from the acting spotlight any more of a crime than the no-shows by Nyong'o, who actually plays two characters in Jordan Peele's horror parable "Us", or De Niro, arguably America's greatest actor, who is on the screen for almost all of Martin Scorsese's mob epic "The Irishman"? Many considered the movie - and her performance - to be among the best of the year.

Early Monday morning, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences released their full list of nominees for the 2020 Oscars, and Joker starring Joaquin Phoenix led the way with 11 nominations. But, none of the actors in the film received a nomination in the lead and supporting acting categories.

The success of "Joker" is notable for a few reasons.
