Here we go! The most anticipated nominations of the year are finally in, the Oscars Nominations 2020! To be honest, this list is not unexpected, but there are a few highlights, surprises, and snubs.

Highlights The Best Picture category, for the second year in a row, features a film also nominated for Best Foreign Language film. Netflix’s juggernaut Roma took home top many awards while Parasite becomes this year’s contender. Netflix has two nominations for Best Picture this year with Marriage Story and The Irishman. Scarlett Johansson is nominated for two awards in two categories for Marriage Story and JoJo Rabbit, which is also nominated for Best Picture. The current race for top honors is truly between 1917, The Irishman and Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood as all have won Best Picture at other award shows.

Surprises Little Women is nominated for Best Picture with nominations for both Saoirse Ronan and Florence Pugh. Director Greta Gerwig was annoyingly ignored just continuing the story that the Academy has room for improvement. Bombshell has a few acting nominations but was not included in Best Picture. Knives Out was nominated for Best Original Screenplay. It is hard to get a comedy nominated for Best Picture, so this is a good alternative.

Snubs As mentioned, Greta Gerwig wasn’t nominated for Best Director, but neither was Marriage Story director Noah Baumbach. Jennifer Lopez has garnered several nominations elsewhere for Hustlers, but she didn’t make the cut for Oscar gold. Awkwafina won Best Actress for The Farewell at the Golden Globes but was not included in the Oscar race, in fact, this film was not included for any nominations. Downton Abbey was a fan favorite this summer but was not included in the Best Costume or Best Production Design categories as expected. Frozen II also didn’t make the cut for Best Animated Feature, though many believed it was stronger than the first film which won Best Animated Feature in 2014. Lastly, a snub goes to Avengers: Endgame which hasn’t been discussed much this award season, but it feels as though Joker made a stronger case. So only one superhero feature could edge into Best Picture. Disappointing for Marvel fans, but I guess the Academy is mostly into DC, who knew?
