Joker leaped to the front of the Oscar race this morning, receiving 11 Academy Award nominations, including best picture, best director and, for Joaquin Phoenix, best actor. Lapping at Joker‘s heels were 1917The Irishman, and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which earned 10 nominations each.

South Korean director Bong Joon-Ho’s Parasite performed well, snagging nominations in six categories, including both best picture and best international feature film. Other films receiving six nominations were Jojo RabbitLittle Women and Marriage Story.

Proponents of Oscar diversity cheered the nominations for Parasite, the first-ever South Korean film to compete for an Academy Award, but lamented the lack of any nominations for performances in the film. In fact, only one slot out of all four acting categories — Cynthia Erivo, who played Harriet Tubman in Harriet — went to a person of color. Additionally, no women were nominated for directing. Best picture contender Little Women earned nominations for performances, screenplay, costume design and score but not for director Greta Gerwig.

There were some surprises, starting with a cinematography nomination for Jarin Blaschke’s black-and-white, 1.19:1 aspect-ratio work on The Lighthouse. Writer-director Rian Johnson got a nod for his Knives Out screenplay. Poland’s relatively unheralded Corpus Christi made it into the international feature film category, and sound mixers Gary Rydstrom, Tom Johnson and Mark Ulano squeaked into the running with their work on Ad Astra. (Ulano will be competing with his own work on Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood with Michael Minkler and Christian P. Minkler.)

The Academy’s VFX branch gave The Irishman‘s de-aging effects and 1917‘s unbroken-shot conceit a stamp of approval, nominating those film’s effects alongside more traditional “VFX films” like Avengers: Endgame, the photoreal The Lion King and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. That’s not really a surprise; nominating Cats (which made it onto the 10-film shortlist!) would have been a surprise.

Were there snubs? Sure — maybe too many to count, depending on your preferences. Many were unhappy to see Lulu Wang’s The Farewell and/or the Safdie Brothers’ Uncut Gems get shut out completely, to name just two fan favorites. Perhaps the most startling was the absence of Apollo 11, one of the year’s most widely distributed and well-reviewed nonfiction films, from the documentary feature category. Maybe the documentary branch rejected director Todd Douglas Miller’s found-footage approach, or maybe it found the historical subject matter less compelling than the contemporary concerns of titles like American Factory, The Cave and For Sama.

Voting for the winners in all 24 Academy Award categories starts January 30 and continues through February 4. The Oscars ceremony is set to take place on Sunday, February 9, at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood.
