The 2019 Oscar Nominees

The nominees for the 91st Academy Awards were announced this morning. Some categories filled out as expected, but the Academy likes to be different from all the other awards shows, so there were obviously some upsets. Before we dive in, let me just say that for this list, I have chosen to exclude the “short” subject categories such as Short Documentary Feature just because those typically are not made available for the masses.

Here are some interesting facts to keep in mind:

  • Roma and The Favourite lead the pack with 10 nominations a piece
  • Black Panther is the first superhero movie EVER nominated for Best Picture
  • After years of campaigning, Roma is Netflix’s first Best Picture nominee
  • Despite his decades-long career in Hollywood, this is Spike Lee’s first nomination for Best Director
