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.

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.
