The 2020 Oscars Nominations Yet Again Shut Out Female Directors

Another double nominee this year is Cynthia Erivo, who's up for best actress and best original song for "Harriet". "Just watch." I didn't even consider a need to assert Jennifer Lopez's nomination because I couldn't fathom them snubbing her.

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. The ceremony will not be led by a host this year, following the controversy over comedian Kevin Hart's homophobic tweets last year, which began circulating on the internet after he was announced as the 2019 ceremony's host. Greta Gerwig was thought to be in with a chance for Best Picture nominee Little Women, while Marielle Heller (A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood) and Lulu Wang (The Farewell) were both believed to be in with a fighting chance. After reading off the list, nominations presenter Issa Rae, absolutely dripping in sarcasm, quipped: "Congratulations to those men".

Kathy Bates (Richard Jewell), Laura Dern (Marriage Story), Scarlett Johansson (Jojo Rabbit), Margot Robbie (Bombshell) and Florence Pugh (Little Women) were selected for best supporting actress.

A dark satire about the gap between rich and poor, it was the first South Korean movie to be nominated in both the best picture and best global film categories.

Green Book was named best picture, while Britain's Olivia Colman won best actress for The Favourite.

Also overlooked was "Frozen 2", the highest-grossing animated film ever, in the animated film category.

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.

The 92nd Annual Academy Awards will air live from the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on February 9 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
