The Academy reveals 2019 Oscar nominees: See the full list

The 91st Academy Awards still don’t have a host, but as of this morning, we now have the full crop of nominees for the annual ceremony honoring the very best in film.

In a year where the race has rarely felt so close, there was a wide distribution of nominees, without any one film pulling especially far ahead from the pack. Yorgos Lanthimos’ unorthodox period piece The Favourite leads the year with a staggering 12 nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director, and top acting honors for all three of its outstanding leads. Adam McKay’s vicious political docu-satire Vice picked up a Best Picture nomination, as well as 10 other nominations including Best Actor for Christian Bale. Roma garnered 10 nominations with nods in just about every major category for which it’s eligible. A Star is Born continued its charge to the Oscars with eight nominations, including acting honors for Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga.

Elsewhere, Black Panther broke new ground for the superhero genre, becoming the first costumed crusader movie to ever rack up a Best Picture nomination, as well as honors in six other categories, including a Best Original Song nomination for Kendrick Lamar and SZA. Divisive contenders Green Book and Bohemian Rhapsody each snagged five nominations, including Best Picture. And in what’s perhaps the biggest and most pleasant surprise of the morning, Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman was a major hit with the Academy, garnering six nominations including Best Picture, Lee as director, and Adam Driver for Best Supporting Actor.

Among the other big surprises, Best Documentary Feature found no room for the acclaimed, audience-beloved Won’t You Be My Neighbor, and once again, Best Picture landed squarely in the middle of the 5-10 nominee range allowed per year, despite a strong crop of potential choices. And to the chagrin of many, First Man’s disappointing box office run seemed to have an impact on its year-end prospects, as Damien Chazelle’s look at the first moon landing settled for four nominations in technical categories.

The 91st Academy Awards will air on Sunday, February 24th on ABC. In the meantime, you can read the full list of this year’s nominees here.
