The 2020 Oscar nominations were announced live on Monday morning, Todd Phillips’ Joker, starring Joaquin Phoenix as the Clown Prince of DC Comics, received the highest number of nominations with 11, including for Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Lead Actor for Phoenix.
Martin Scorsese’s mob epic “The Irishman,” Quentin Tarantino’s ode to Los Angeles “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” and Sam Mendes’ “1917” followed close behind with 10 nods a piece. Those films, along with “Ford v Ferrari,” “Jojo Rabbit,” “Little Women,” “Marriage Story” and “Parasite” were all nominated for Best Picture.
Female filmmakers were entirely shut out of the best director race. Along with Phillips, the nominees include Scorsese for “The Irishman,” Mendes for “1917,” Tarantino for “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” and Bong Joon Ho for “Parasite.”
