Oscar Nominations Are In With Some Surprises
The 2019 Oscar nominations have been announced with the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences unveiled nominations to the 91st Oscars this morning. Kumail Nanjiani and Tracee Ellis Ross announced the nominees.
WZZM TV13 reports Alfonso Cuaron's "Roma" and Yorgos Lanthimos' "The Favourite" have led all films with 10 nominations each.
With "Roma," Netflix has scored its first best picture nomination, something the streaming giant has dearly sought. Marvel, too, joined the club with "Black Panther," the first superhero movie ever nominated for best picture.
Spike Lee has been nominated for his first directing Oscar 30 years after a writing nod for 1989's "Do the Right Thing."
The Oscars this year are on on Sunday, February 24 on ABC. The show will air live from the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood and Highland.
