The Best Reactions to Monday’s Oscar Nominations

The film has been nominated for six Oscars

Joker leads the award nominations race with 11 nods. The film's nominations included best actor for Joaquin Phoenix and best director for Phillips.

Pugh was nominated for best supporting actress alongside Johansson for Jojo Rabbit, Kathy Bates for Richard Jewell, Laura Dern for Marriage Story and Margot Robbie for Bombshell.

Best adapted screenplay is between The Irishman, Jojo Rabbit, Joker, Little Women and The Two Popes.

Nominating "Dolemite is My Name" for Best Picture, for instance, would have been a nice grace note. On what planet is the screenplay for 1917 more deserving than The Farewell, Pain and Glory or Booksmart?

Florence Pugh, nominated for best supporting actress in "Little Women", Instagrammed a before and after photo of herself in bed.

South Korean class satire "Parasite", from Bong Joon-ho, secured the final best director slot, meaning once again no women made the shortlist.

Antonio Banderas, 59, and Jonathan Pryce, 72, have both had long and illustrious careers, but both got their first Oscar nominations Monday.

Oscars 2020: Nominations announcement under way
The first woman in Academy Awards history to take home the prize did so 82 years after the first Oscar was handed out. You can see John Cho and Issa Rae announce all of the nominees for this year's awards in the video embedded above.

Ever since the hashtag #OscarsSoWhite went viral in 2015, followed by the #MeToo movement initiated in 2017, Oscar nominations have faced controversy for selecting exceptionally few women and minorities in the top categories. JLo was expected to receive a nomination for Actress in a Supporting Role.

Little Women is the only film directed by a woman among the best picture contenders.

Two critically-acclaimed films directed by women, Lorene Scafaria's black comedy Hustlers and Lulu Wang's The Farewell, are among the most notable snubs.

In an industry criticized for its lack of diversity, the Oscars picked only one non-white acting nominee - British star Cynthia Erivo, who plays United States anti-slavery icon Harriet Tubman in "Harriet".

Thomas Newman, nominated for best original score for his work on "1917", is part of an extended family film-scoring dynasty with almost 100 nominations between them.

Those four were among the nine films nominated for best picture, in nominations announced Monday to the 92nd Academy Awards.

The 92nd Academy Awards will take place February 9 in Los Angeles at the Dolby Theatre.
