Oscars 2020 Nominations: Joker Leads with 11 Nominations

Worthy praise for Joker?

Joker 2019

The Oscar nominations are out, and it was a strong showing for Warner Brothers and Todd Phillips’ Joker, which leads the pack with 11 nominations, showing up for Picture, Director, Actor, Adapted Screenplay, and 7 technical nominations.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, 1917, and The Irishman all tie for second place with 10 nominations each, so strong showings for each film there as well.

A few surprise inclusions are both Jonathan Pryce and Anthony Hopkins for The Two Popes and Kathy Bates for Supporting Actress in Richard Jewell.

For the exclusions, no Taron Egerton for Best Actor (Rocketman only received one nomination), Jennifer Lopez in Supporting Actress for Hustlers, and Parasite, despite 6 nominations, did not land an acting nomination, despite the Ensemble nomination at the Screen Actors Guild. We’ll have more to follow this week.
