Oscars: The Biggest Snubs and Surprises from Today’s Nominations

2019 Oscar nominations Everything you need to know

The nominations for the 91st Academy Awards were announced on Tuesday. Subbing in for Green Book's Peter Farrelly and A Star Is Born's Bradley Cooper is The Favourite's Yorgos Lanthimos and Cold War's Pawel Pawlikowski. The next year, the Academy opened up the best picture category from 5 to 10 slots. There were rumblings that Christopher Nolan's dark and gritty bat-flick would make history, break the mold, and become the first comic book property nominated for Best Picture.

Colman, from Norwich, stars as Queen Anne in The Favourite, while Bale was recognised for his portrayal of controversial former USA vice-president Dick Cheney in Vice. The Favourite and Roma both scored 10 nominations on Tuesday, leading the list of incredible nominees. Marvel, too, joined the club with "Black Panther", the first superhero movie ever nominated for best picture.

Yet Cooper didn't land a best director nomination for his work behind the camera - an omission that does not bode well for his film's chances of winning best picture. Only Orson Welles ("Citizen Kane") and Warren Beatty (who did it twice with "Reds" and "Heaven Can Wait") have matched the four-nod feat. She has more nominations without a win than any other living actor or actress. "The cultural impact the movie has had for nearly a year now, all leads to this moment, the highest form of recognition from our peers".

It might have been a long shot, but Bo Burnham's ode to life's most awkward year at least seemed to have a small chance of getting a nomination, for writing or Elsie Fisher's achingly poignant performance.

The three nominations received by the Coen brothers' The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, another Netflix title, is a further boost to the streaming company's Hollywood aspirations. In turn, it was rewarded with 13 nominations overall, second only to Fox Searchlight's 15.

Congratulations to "BlacKkKlansman" director Spike Lee for earning his first-ever Oscar nomination and to Washington's co-star Adam Driver for picking up a nom in the Supporting Actor category. No nominations were awarded for neither Michael B. Jordan nor director Ryan Coogler. Spike Lee was nominated for directing.

The acclaimed documentary about the late Fred Rogers was nearly a lock to get an Oscar nomination. Documentaries had a much better showing for female directors, with "RBG", from Betsy West and Julie Cohen, and "Free Solo", which was co-directed by Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi.

Netflix shares slip as spending weighs on profits
Netflix also mentioned that it is directly competing and losing against globally iconic game: Fortnite . The company saw 8.8 million paid net additions, higher than Wall Street's expectation of 7.6 million.

The acting categories played out largely as expected with a few notable differences.

It wasn't all bad news for First Reformed though...

- Yalitza Aparicio's nomination for "Roma" comes in her first role as an actress.

It should be noted that Marina de Tavira's nomination means Claire Foy did not get in for First Man.

When it comes to directors, as Natalie Portman pointedly declared while presenting at last year's ceremony, yet again, we are left with "all male nominees".

You Were Never Really Here, Can You Ever Forgive Me?
