The Academy Snubs Beyonce And Jennifer Lopez At 2020 Oscars

Only one of the 20 acting nominees was a person of colour and that was Cynthia Erivo for her lead role as anti-slavery activist Harriet Tubman in Harriet.

Oscar predictions had pointed out to performances by Eddie Murphy in Dolemite Is My Name, Jennifer Lopez in Hustlers, Awkwafina for The Farewell and Lupita Nyong'o in Us, but only one non-white actor was among the Academy's picks: British star Cynthia Erivo, who plays U.S. anti-slavery icon Harriet Tubman in Harriet.

Yes, Robert De Niro may already have his fair share of Oscars gold on the mantlepiece (he previously won for his roles in Raging Bull and The Godfather Part II), yet the actor was unable to secure a nomination for the Irishman.

Issa Rae, who co-hosted the Academy's Oscar announcement along with John Cho, threw some delicious shade at the Academy for failing to nominate a single female director. 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.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced all of the nominees in a live streamed presentation today.

Oscar Nominations 2020: Surprises, Snubs, and 'Joker' Leads the Pack
In Hollywood's 10 nods include for best original screenplay for Tarantino, best sound mixing and best production design . It's time to see the list of films, actors, actresses and more who are chosen for the prestigious 92nd Academy Awards .

Renee Zellweger, who has swept the best actress nominations so far during this awards season, headed the best actress Oscar shortlist thanks to her acclaimed turn as showbiz legend Judy Garland in "Judy".

Green Book was named best picture, while Britain's Olivia Colman won best actress for The Favourite. The 71-year-old was last nominated 17 years ago for a supporting role in About Schmidt, and was a leading-actress victor in 1991 for Misery. "Frozen 2" wasn't nominated for animated feature. With Apollo 11 out of the picture, the award looks likely to go to For Sama (the other nominees are American Factory, The Cave, The Edge of Democracy, and Honeyland). After a Golden Globe nomination and dozens of nominations from critics, there was some hope-especially as Hustlers is Lopez's first movie to get a "fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes since 1998.

"Congrats to the incredible filmmakers and entire team!" he wrote.

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