Netflix Is Already Owning this Year's Oscars

Margot Robbie has been nominated for her second Academy Award. But for anyone looking for a change in the makeup of nominees from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, that just means we can get this one over with sooner, and look forward (again) to next year. This is the 12th time an actor has pulled off the feat.

Renee Zellweger, who has swept the best actress nominations so far during this awards season, headed the best actress Oscar shortlist thanks to her acclaimed turn as showbiz legend Judy Garland in "Judy". No one has ever won two acting awards in the same year.

Scarlett Johansson, left, and Adam Driver in Marriage Story. After a Golden Globe nomination and dozens of nominations from critics, there was some hope-especially as Hustlers is Lopez's first movie to get a "fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes since 1998. Mary J. Blige did it in 2018 for Mudbound and Lady Gaga did it past year for A Star Is Born.

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. Greta Gerwig, who in 2018 was the last woman to be nominated in the category (for Lady Bird), missed out on a nom for Little Women, with other notable absences including Scafaria and Marielle Heller for A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. "It makes me feel very, very very young", Banderas said in an interview.

All together, that's a whopping 24 nominations for the streaming service.

South Korean class satire "Parasite", from Bong Joon-ho, secured the final best director slot, meaning once again no women made the shortlist.

Former assistant GM Brandon Taubman , who made insensitive remarks to women reporters after the ALCS, was suspended for one year. The NFL took away a first-round draft pick and suspended quarterback Tom Brady for four games.

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

Last week, the British Film Academy was criticized for its nominations' lack of diversity; all best picture contenders were directed by men and not a single person of color was among the nominated actors.

Thomas Newman, nominated for best original score for his work on 1917, is part of an extended family film-scoring dynasty with almost 100 nominations between them.

Yes, Robert De Niro may already have his fair share of Oscars gold on the mantlepiece (he previously won for his roles in Raging Bull and The Godfather Part II), yet the actor was unable to secure a nomination for the Irishman.

Alfred Newman's 43 Oscar nominations is somehow not a record. John Williams got his 52nd on Monday morning - 47 for music scoring and five for original song.

So is Brad Pitt, another four-time nominee, who is going to win Best Supporting Actor for playing the courageous and loyal stuntman in Quentin Tarantino's Tinseltown fantasy "Once Upon a Time.in Hollywood". The actor portrays the real-life actor Dolemite with humour and tint of pathos, yet was unable to secure an Oscar nomination. Of the nine best picture nominees, only one was released before October.
