The Academy has announced it’s nominations for The 92nd Academy Awards. Todd Phillips Joker leads the nominees with 11 nominations.

The gritty origins films based around Batman’s arch-nemesis has been tipped for awards glory since it’s world premiere. Next to a number of technical noms, the film is up for best film, best director, best adapted screenplay and best actor for Joaquin Phoenix.It equal the noms it received at The Baftas last week.

The Irishman, 1917 and Once Upon A Time…in Hollywood are hot on the tail of Joker with 10 each.

Many critics, figures in film criticised EE Baftas for lack of diversity.The Oscar nominations fared a little better. Once again there is no female directors nominated and Black actors/actress overlooked. Whilst Greta Gerwig was snubbed in the Best Director category, her film Little Women did gain 6 nominations. Cynthia Erivo has been nominated in the best actress category, however Harriet director Kasi Lemmons was snubbed.

Other notable snubs were Lulu Wang, Awkwafina with The Farewell. Lupita Nyong’o with US, Adam Sandler with Uncut Gems. Eddie Murphy (Dolemite Is My Name) and Jennifer Lopez (Hustlers), we could go on…

After last year’s success with Roma, Netflix top the distributor charts with 22 nominations.
