2020 Oscar Nominations: The Complete List

The Todd Phillips-directed "Joker" leads the pack with 11 nominations, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Joaquin Phoenix.

All the “Joker” debating, “Marriage Story” meme-ing, “Little Women” snubbing and “The Irishman” line-counting have led to this: The 2020 Oscar nominations

The controversial supervillain origin story that raked in over $1 billion at the box office led the nominees across 24 categories highlighting the year’s best in film with a whopping 11 nods, including Best Picture, Best Actor for Joaquin Phoenix and Best Director for Todd Phillips.

Martin Scorsese’s costly gangster saga “The Irishman,” Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” and Sam Mendes single-take World War I drama “1917” trailed not far behind with 10 nominations apiece. 

“Little Women,” “Marriage Story,” “Jojo Rabbit,” “Ford v Ferrari” and “Parasite” will compete alongside those films for the coveted Best Picture award.

The nominees were unveiled early Monday in Los Angeles by “Insecure” creator Issa Rae, who pointed out the all-male field of nominees for Best Director, and actor John Cho ahead of the 92nd annual ceremony in February. 

After failing to score its first Best Picture prize at the Academy Awards in 2019 with Alfonso Cuaron’s “Roma,” Netflix is looking to secure a history-making win in 2020. The streaming service is well on its way, beating out all other Hollywood studios with 23 nods, topping last year’s total of 15 Oscar nominations. 

While there’s always room for unexpected moments at the ceremony in a post-“La La Land” and “Moonlight” world, this year’s acting races seem destined to mirror previous awards shows. Renée Zellweger and Joaquin Phoenix are sure things in the Best Actor and Best Actress races for “Judy” and “Joker,” respectively, while Brad Pitt seems a lock for Best Supporting Actor and Laura Dern for Best Supporting Actress ― her biggest competition Jennifer Lopez was snubbed. 

The awards show once again failed to capture the diversity of this year’s films. The Academy nominated only a single nonwhite performer in the acting categories, leading many to resurrect #OscarsSoWhite hashtag on social media.

Women were also completely shut out of the directing category, with Greta Gerwig and her “Little Women” standing as the most egregious snub. Bong Joon Ho, however, did make history as the first Korean filmmaker to be nominated in the category. His “Parasite” also made history as the first Korean Best Picture nominee.

For the second consecutive year, the ceremony will forego a host, ABC announced last week, with the network teasing an evening that boasts “huge entertainment values, big musical numbers, comedy and star power” instead of a master of ceremonies. The host gig has become one of the most undesirable in Hollywood when last year’s original host, Kevin Hart, stepped down after outcry over his past homophobic remarks on social media. 

The 92nd Academy Awards will be handed out live on ABC from the Dolby Theatre on Sunday, Feb. 9.
