Oscar nomination 2020 surprises: No Beyoncé, J.Lo, Frozen 2

Another controversy is brewing after the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) failed to nominate any female directors.

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

The 2020 Oscar nominations have been announced, with films such as Joker, 1917 and Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood snapping up the bulk of nominations.

Scarlett Johansson is nominated in two acting categories, for best actress in "Marriage Story" and best supporting actress in "Jojo Rabbit".

"Honeyland", a documentary about a keeper of wild bees in North Macedonia, achieved the rare double of being nominated for best worldwide film and best documentary feature.

The Irishman, 1917 and Once Upon a Time.in Hollywood follow with 10 nominations each.

"Parasite", from South Korea, is the sixth film to be nominated for best global film - before this year known as best foreign language film - and for best picture in the same year.

And the Academy pointed to a record number of female nominees overall, at 62.

Black Shark 3 Could be the first Phone to Feature 16GB RAM
We can expect the Black Shark 3 to be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and backed by a 4,000mAh battery. If these claims are true, the Black Shark 3 will be recorded as the highest RAM device in the smartphone market so far.

The figure includes movie producers and technical categories such as best musical score, where Icelandic maestro Hildur Gudnadottir became the ninth woman nominated. "I couldn't even get an Oscar nomination because these bougie b****es think that they're better than me".

Another actress who fans were hoping would land a nomination is Jennifer Lopez.

"The Irishman" helped Netflix to 24 nominations - the first time it has ever topped the studio count. Mind you, the Best Supporting Actor nominees already know that - their average age is also 71, lowered somewhat by the youngster Brad Pitt, aged 56.

In the documentary category, "American Factory" - which follows a US Rust Belt factory reopened by a Chinese billionaire - picked up a nomination for its well-known producers.

"Congrats to the incredible filmmakers and entire team!" he wrote.

Voting for winners - in which all members can vote in every category - begins January 30, closing five days later.
