​Joker Leads Oscar Nominations

Todd Phillips’ divisive take on a legendary DC character was a huge hit with the Academy, landing a stunning 11 Oscar nominations this morning, including citations for Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Actor, for Joaquin Phoenix. Three epic films were right behind with 10, and all three nominated for Picture and Director too: “1917,” “The Irishman,” and “Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood”. The other five films chosen as the Best Picture of 2019 are “Ford v Ferrari,” “Jojo Rabbit,” “Little Women,” “Marriage Story,” and “Parasite.” Scarlett Johannson had a particularly fun morning, landing her first two Oscar nominations in the same year, while A24 had a particularly bad one, landing only one nomination for the cinematography in “The Lighthouse” (“The Farewell” and “Uncut Gems” completely snubbed).
