Netflix And The 2020 Oscars: What You Need To Know

Netflix

Leading the pack is Joker, which was nominated for 11 Academy Awards on Monday.

Many were also disappointed that only one nonwhite actor, Cynthia Erivo, the star of the action film "Harriet", was nominated for an Oscar.

It seems that hasn't done much to address the issue.

The five nominees for Best Director also represent the leaders in the overall nomination count.

That's because, once again, no women were nominated in this category.

Little Women is the only film directed by a woman among the best picture contenders.

The Oscars has a pretty bad track record with recognising female directors.

Billie Eilish pens newest James Bond theme for ‘No Time to Die’
The news, confirmed by 007 themselves on Twitter , makes Billie the youngest act to ever write and record a Bond theme. And the latest musical great to join their ranks is Billie Eilish .

In fact, 2020 nominee Martin Scorsese has more nominations on his own than all the women directors combined-something that has annoyed many social media users.

The only woman to have ever won this award was Kathryn Bigelow in 2009 for The Hurt Locker.

But Variety's chief film critic Owen Gleiberman said he didn't think the slate of nominees was a "gender-based decision". The controversial Warner Bros. movie, an origin story of the titular DC Comics villain, earned more than US$1 billion at the global box office.

Five works were selected in the category formerly known as best foreign film - renamed this year "international feature film": Corpus Christi (Jan Komasa, Poland), Honeyland (Tamara Kotevska, Ljubomir Stefanov, North Macedonia), Les Miserables (Ladj Ly, France), Pain and Glory (Pedro Almodovar, Spain) and Parasite (Bong Joon Ho, South Korea). "The Lighthouse" nominated for best cinematography. "The Farewell" star Awkwafina, who recently became the first Asian woman to win Best Actress in a Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical at the Golden Globes, and "Farewell" director Lulu Wang were not included in the nominations. The grand total of nominations for all of those films combined?

Last year, three of the four acting Oscars went to non-white performers.

Considering Joker was far from a critical favourite and divided audiences with its portrayal of an isolated loner, the Academy's overwhelming support for the film was unexpected. "Explore what we're seeing and feeling in society, from the lack of empathy to the effects of the absence of love". The Irishman, 1917 and Once Upon a Time...

Yet, while the Oscars are a celebration of movies and cinema, there are still those worthy artists who missed out on nominations.
