Oscars 2020: Nominations announcement under way

Disney Box Office Lionsgate STX Entertainment

The Joaquin Phoenix-starring twist on the Clown Prince of Crime's origin story earned 11 nominations in total: Best Picture, Best Actor for Phoenix, Best Director for Todd Phillips, Best Adapted Screenplay, Cinematography, Costume Design, Editing, Makeup and Hairstyling, Original Score, Sound Editing and Sound Mixing.

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

On Monday, when the complete list of Oscar nominations for 2020 were released, Margot scored a nod in the "Best Supporting Actress" category. Laura Dern won best supporting actress in "Marriage Story".

"Congratulations to those men", actress and writer Issa Rae, co-host of the official Oscars nominations announcement, said pointedly as she presented the nominees.

Oscar predictions had pointed out to performances by Eddie Murphy in Dolemite Is My Name, Jennifer Lopez in Hustlers, Awkwafina for The Farewell and Lupita Nyong'o in Us, but only one non-white actor was among the Academy's picks: British star Cynthia Erivo, who plays USA anti-slavery icon Harriet Tubman in Harriet.

And it's not like there weren't options: The Farewell, Hustlers and Little Women were all films both written and directed by women that missed out this year.

The five nominees for Best Director also represent the leaders in the overall nomination count.

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.

Meanwhile, Robert De Niro was the biggest star overlooked in the best actor category for "The Irishman", although Martin Scorsese's director nod makes him the living director with the most Oscar nominations, with nine.

Alongside Joker, Netflix also found itself with a bunch of nominations for The Irishman.

Cate Blanchett, 50, also missed out on Oscars recognition, after being previously nominated in the "Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy" category at the Golden Globes for film, Where'd You Go, Bernadette. Taron Egerton, who won the Globe for Best Actor (Comedy/Musical) for his performance as Elton John in Rocketman, was shut out of the Oscars along with Awkwafina; Leonardo DiCaprio, whom he beat at the Globes, was nominated.

"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.

The Oscars, by very definition, are the most exclusive of Hollywood's award shows.
