Oscars 2020: Nominations announcement under way

You can see John Cho and Issa Rae announce all of the nominees for this year's awards in the video embedded above. The movie has been nominated for best picture, Martin Scorsese has landed an achievement in directing nod, and both Al Pacino and Joe Pesci have received nominations for best performance by an actor in a supporting role.

Female directors were also shut out of the 2020 Oscar nominations: Marielle Heller (A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood), Greta Gerwig (Little Women), Lorene Scafaria (Hustlers), and Lulu Wang (The Farewell) were not featured under the Best Director category.

Lina Wertmüller was the first woman ever nominated for Best Director, for 1977's Seven Beauties.

Well-deserving actors and artists got their nods, while some of the finest work of the year was completely ignored per the Oscars' unadventurous prerogative, and a few freaky nominations just made no sense at all.

All in all, the film was nominated for five awards, though didn't win any.
