The nominations for the 2020 Academy Awards are being announced live in Los Angeles this morning, presented by John Cho and Issa Rae. Both Cho and Rae have commented on (or, in Cho’s case, been the subject of a campaign commenting upon) the lack of diversity in Hollywood, an unspoken but ironic counterpoint to the overwhelming whiteness of this year’s nominees. Rae also couldn’t help but note, “...for screenplay,” when Cho commented that Greta Gerwig had been nominated for Little Women, a comment on the all-male Best Director status quo being maintained for yet another year. “Congratulations to those men,” she added when the category was announced.

In news that will be met with delight in some corners of the internet and horror in others, Joker leads this year’s nominations with 11 nods. Following closely behind are Once Upon A Time... In Hollywood, 1917, and The Irishman, all of which received 10 nominations each. And although it was shut out of the acting categories, Bong Joon ho’s Parasite made history as the first South Korean film to be nominated for Best Picture and the newly rebranded Best International Film.

The 92nd Academy Awards will be broadcast live, also from Los Angeles, on February 9. We’ll have more commentary from our film section later this morning.
