Roma and The Favourite lead Oscar nominations 2019


The Academy Award nominations have been announced in Los Angeles. The list is not short of controversies – mainly, the lack of female director nominations. In the Academy’s 90 year history, there have only been five female nominations for best director.

Alfonso Cuaron’s black-and-white Netflix triumph, Roma and Olivia Colman’s royal drama, The Favourite lead with 10 nominations apiece. Other favourites include: A Star is Born, Vice and Black Panther. Black Panther is the first superhero movie to ever be nominated for best picture.
