What's missing from this year's Oscar nominations

These are certainly some Oscar nominees but

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.

Gene Seymour is a film critic who has written about music, movies and culture for The New York Times, Newsday, Entertainment Weekly and The Washington Post.

Best adapted screenplay is between The Irishman, Jojo Rabbit, Joker, Little Women and The Two Popes.

The nominees were announced during a live ceremony on Monday, with actor in a leading role containing Antonio Banderas for Pain And Glory, Leonardo DiCaprio for Once Upon A Time.

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

Pugh was nominated for best supporting actress alongside Johansson for Jojo Rabbit, Kathy Bates for Richard Jewell, Laura Dern for Marriage Story and Margot Robbie for Bombshell. Not a good look for an awards show whose primary fanbase - whether they like or it not - does not look like the cast of The Irishman.

Maxwell says he has banished demons in head
I don't have anything going on in the back of my mind, I don't have any of these other thoughts. I've been able to get everything off my chest and been able to deal with things better.

In the history of the Oscars, only five women have ever been nominated for best director - including Gerwig, for 2017's "Lady Bird". The youngest to be nominated for the fourth time was Jennifer Lawrence at 24 in 2015.

"Parasite", from South Korea, is the sixth film to be nominated for best worldwide film - before this year known as best foreign language film - and for best picture in the same year. Five of those, most recently "Roma" previous year, won the foreign film Oscar but not best picture.

"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.

If everything went according to plan, Beyonce could've scored a nod in Best Original Song with "Spirit". Somehow, though, it wasn't even nominated. John Williams got his 52nd on Monday morning - 47 for music scoring and five for original song.

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.

There really is an Oscar season. "Once Upon a Time.in Hollywood" came out July 25.
