Jennifer Lopez Perfectly Matches Her Makeup to Her Baby Blue Gown

The 2020 Oscar nominations have been announced, and just as it is every year, the 24-category field of nominees is a maddenning mix of satisfying, infuriating, and simply baffling.

Jennifer Lopez is feeling anything but blue!

When the hashtag was first picked up in 2015, it prompted the Academy to diversify its mostly white, male membership by inviting more women and people of colour to join.

In announcing the nominees for best director, actress Issa Rae said with a deadpan expression: "Congratulations to those men".

The only woman to have ever won this award was Kathryn Bigelow in 2009 for The Hurt Locker.

Jennifer Lopez: Jenny from the block, of Puerto Rican origin, lost what was considered a guaranteed place in the Best Supporting Actress category despite her acclaimed turn as stripper Ramona Vega in Hustlers.

In the "Best Picture" category, New Zealand filmmaker Taika Waititi's comedy-drama Jojo Rabbit, featuring Rebel Wilson, was nominated, as was Little Women, which stars Australian actress Eliza Scanlen.

Purdue gives 8th-ranked Michigan State historic 71-42 beating
Last season, on January 27, 2019, they fell behind by 23 points in the first half, cut it to four late but eventually lost, 73-63. It's also Purdue's second victory over a Top 10 foe this season and its 15th consecutive home win over a Big Ten opponent.

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.

Margot Robbie has been nominated for her second Academy Award.

Coming off a year where the primary two films celebrated were deemed wildly problematic in their representations of race (Green Book) and sexuality (Bohemian Rhapsody), it's hard to trust the Oscars to get it together in anytime soon. Twitter doesn't get it either.

Renee Zellweger was nominated for her portrayal of showbiz legend Judy Garland in Judy - for which she also already received a Golden Globe at the beginning of January. Frozen II and The Lion King didn't make the Best Animated Film cut. Pundits and cine-goers were also disappointed that some performances not acknowledged at the Golden Globes were left out at the Oscars as well - among these names are Lupita Nyong'o for Us and Adam Sandler for Uncut Gems.

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

The Oscars will be handed out in Hollywood on February 9. Perhaps the Academy's resistance to boldly go where no other award shows have gone before is unsurprising and one could argue that the Academy reserves the right to award those it chooses to award.
