This morning the nominations for the 2020 Academy Awards were announced. Joker garnered the most nominations out of any film with 11, including for Best Picture, Best Actor (Joaquin Phoenix), Best Director (Todd Phillips), and Best Adapted Screenplay (Todd Phillips & Scott Silver). The other eight films nominated for Best Picture were 1917, Ford v Ferrari, The Irishman, Jojo Rabbit, Little Women, Marriage Story, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and Parasite.

This is another year where not a single woman was nominated for Best Director. Greta Gerwig was a likely contender for Little Women and another strong option could have been Lulu Wang for The Farewell, a film completely shut out. Apart from Cynthia Erivo's Best Actress nomination for Harriet and Antonio Banderas' Best Actor nomination for Pain and Glory, there wasn't a whole lot of diversity in the acting nominations either. Scarlett Johansson got two nominations, one for Best Actress for Marriage Story and one for Best Supporting Actress for Jojo Rabbit, but what about Cuban actress Ana de Armas and her acclaimed turn in Knives Out? In fact, that film was completely shut out apart from a Best Screenplay nomination for Rian Johnson. Or what about Chinese-American actress Awkwafina for The Farewell or Jennifer Lopez for Hustlers?

Below is the full list of nominees and the winners will be announced on February 9, so you've got until then to get caught up on all the nominated films (The Irishman and Marriage Story are on Netflix, for starters). The ceremony will be airing on ABC and for the second year in a row the show will have no host.
