Netflix Scores 24 Oscar Nominations for The Irishman, Marriage Story & More

Patrick Stewart Variety Cover Story

Sony Pictures Entertainment received 20 nominations, including nods for Sony Pictures Classics, for "Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood" and "Little Women", among others. The ceremony will not be led by a host this year, following the controversy over comedian Kevin Hart's homophobic tweets last year, which began circulating on the internet after he was announced as the 2019 ceremony's host.

The best actor contenders are Antonio Banderas (Pain and Glory), Leonardo DiCaprio (Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood), Adam Driver (Marriage Story), Joaquin Phoenix (Joker) and Jonathan Pryce (The Two Popes).

The Irishman and Marriage Story got top honors, each receiving a nomination for Best Picture, alongside Ford v Ferrari, Jojo Rabbit, Joker, Little Women, 1917, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and Parasite.

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 global film, including best picture, best director and best original screenplay.

The most coveted honour in the film industry i.e. the 92nd Academy Awards, will take place on February 9 and the nominations are out.

'Little Women' star Florence Pugh reacts to her first Oscar nomination
For her part, the film's director herself is expressing no outrage or sadness at being overlooked for a directorial nomination. Irish actress Saoirse Ronan has received her fourth Oscar nomination with a best actress nod for her role in Little Women .

Female filmmakers were entirely shut out of the best director race.

Even among the nine movies nominated for best picture - equaling the most titles since the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences expanded from five to as many as 10 - there is a certain been-there quality to go along with a few breakthroughs.

The figure includes movie producers and technical categories such as best musical score, where Icelandic maestro Hildur Gudnadottir became the ninth woman nominated.

Nominations have been announced in eight categories so far, with the remaining 16 shortlists to follow shortly.
