With “Roma,” Netflix is looking to get its first Oscar nomination for Best Picture, while Alfonso Cuarón could land nominations for Best Picture, Director, Original Screenplay, Cinematography, and Editing. Elsewhere, “BlacKkKlansman” director Spike Lee could earn his first Oscar nomination for Best Director, which would make him only the sixth black filmmaker in history to achieve the honor. Bradley Cooper is also expected to earn numerous nominations, including Director and Actor.
