'Joker' leads Oscar nominations with 11

Much of the focus so far this award season has been on the lack of women and ethnic minority filmmakers honoured

The Insecure actress, who presented the list of 2020 Oscar nominations early Monday morning, was not impressed after reading the all-male list of Best Director nominees.

One user even invoked a Little Women meme.

Bong Joon-ho for Parasite, Sam Mendes for 1917, Martin Scorsese for The Irishman, Quentin Tarantino for Once Upon a Time...in Hollywood and Todd Phillips for Joker were all nominated instead.

While in the supporting categories, Sir Anthony Hopkins is recognised for his work on The Two Popes alongside Tom Hanks for A Beautiful Day In The Neighbourhood, Al Pacino and his The Irishman co-star Joe Pesci and Brad Pitt for Once Upon A Time...

"Congratulations to those men", Rae 35, quipped with a sarcastic tone after the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science left out female directors from the category. Lulu Wang, the director of "The Farewell", was also thought to have a shot at a nomination.

Bigelow is the only woman to win best director in the 90-year history of the Academy Awards. In the Animated Feature Film and International Feature Film categories, nominees are selected by a vote of multi-branch screening committees.

Irish actress Saoirse Ronan has received her fourth Oscar nomination with a best actress nod for her role in Little Women.

Rae's remark elicited laughs among those in the theater where the nominations were announced. "Little Women" was also nominated for best original score and best costume design. Gerwig previously became only the fifth-ever woman nominated for the award in 2017 for Lady Bird. "This film is a testament to the brilliance of Greta Gerwig".

1917's 10 nods include best picture, best director, best original screenplay, best achievement in visual effects and best achievement in sound editing. "She is the most brilliant creative talent working in our industry today, and we are thrilled that she and our lovely film have been recognized".
