The biggest night in movies has arrived thanks to the 92nd Academy Awards, which are going host-less for the second year in a row. This year’s Oscars are dominated by Todd Phillips’ billion-dollar grossing comic book drama “Joker,” which leads all movies with 11 Oscar nominations. In second place with 10 nominations is a trio of heavyweight contenders: Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman,” Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” and Sam Mendes’ “1917.” Other multi-nominated films include Greta Gerwig’s “Little Women,” Taika Waititi’s “Jojo Rabbit,” and Bong Joon Ho’s “Parasite.”
While the Oscars are set to honor the best in film from 2019, the Academy has come under fire since announcing this year’s nomination for failing to recognize minority actors and directors. The Best Director race shut out women filmmakers, despite Gerwig’s “Little Women” earning nominations for Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Original Score, and Best Costume Design, plus two acting nominations for Florence Pugh and Saoirse Ronan. The four acting categories only include one nominee of color: Best Actress nominee Cynthia Erivo, who is nominated for Best Actress for her performance in “Harriet.”
