2019 Academy Award nominations

It’s been an interesting 12 months leading up to the 2019 Oscars.

Last year the Academy announced a new category - Outstanding Achievement in Popular Film - that was met with near immediate backlash from the public who felt this was the Academy’s answer to including blockbuster hits like Marvel films into the award show rather than giving them nominations like ‘Best Picture’.

They quickly abandoned the category.

More drama opened up when to-be host Kevin Hart backed out after the Academy asked him to apologize for decade old Tweets he has publicly apologized for in the past. As of now, there is still no host(s) confirmed.

Flash forward to today.

The 2019 Oscar nominations have finally been revealed and the diverse list of nominations across the many categories should be a refreshing announcement to the many film lovers who have - in recent years - been more and more vocal about the Academy having a seemingly biased voting system that has snubbed many deserving films, actors and crew.

Streaming giant Netflix had it’s biggest year yet with 14 total nominations - 10 of them going to Alfonso Cuarón’s ‘Roma’ (Yorgos Lanthimos’ ‘The Favourite’ also grabbed 10 nominations).

This makes ‘Roma’ the first film to have virtually no theatrical release yet still receive so may nominations - specifically Best Picture. This is also the first Best Picture nomination for Netflix.

2019 also brings Spike Lee his first Best Picture & Best Director nomination for ‘BlacKkKlansman’ but the real surprise here (when looking at past shows) was ‘Black Panther’ picking up a Best Picture nomination.

This is the first superhero film to be nominated for the award and it was expected to receive the despised Outstanding Achievement in Popular Film award when it was originally announced.

The list goes on with dozens of nominations so feel free to scroll down to review the entire nomination list.
