2019 Oscar Nominations Announced!

It is the end of award season!! 

The Oscars/Academy Awards unveiled its 2019 nominations early Tuesday morning, with The Favourite and Roma leading all films with 10 nominations apiece.  Both movies are nominated for best picture for the 91st Oscars alongside BlacKkKlansman, Black Panther, Bohemian Rhapsody, Green Book, A Star is Born (my personal fave) and Vice.  

A Star is Born and Vice were also dominant in the 2019 Oscar nominations, earning eight apiece, followed by Black Panther with seven, BlacKkKlansman with six, and Bohemian Rhapsody and Green Book with five each.  

Meanwhile, in the directing category, Spike Lee earned his first-ever best directing Oscar nomination for BlacKkKlansman, while A Star Is Born director Bradley Cooper was among the snubs-- though he did earn a best acting nomination. Lee will vie with Alfonso Cuaron (Roma), Yorgos Lanthimos (The Favourite), Adam McKay (Vice) and Pawel Pawlikowski (Cold War) for the honor of best director at the 2019 Oscars.

Glenn Close picked up her seventh Academy Award nod for best actress in The Wife while Lady Gaga nabbed her first acting nomination for A Star Is Born (YAYYYYY).  Their competition includes Olivia Colman for The Favourite, Yaltiza Aparicio for Roma, and Melissa McCarthy for Can You Ever Forgive Me.

The best actor race includes Christian Bale for his turn as former VP Dick Cheney in Vice, Rami Malek as iconic Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody, Bradley Cooper in A Star is Born, Willem Dafoe as Vincent Van Gogh in At Eternity's Gate, and Viggo Mortensen in Green Book.  

The Oscar nominations announcement took place at the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater, with Kumail Nanjiani and Tracee Ellis Ross hosting.

The 91st annual Academy Awards will be presented once again at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood. The show will air live Sunday, Feb. 24, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
