‘Joker’ tops Oscar nominations. Read the full list

‘Joker’ tops Oscar nominations. Read the full list”

"If I were you Jen, I'd pull out of the Super Bowl", said Williams, who went on to speculate that Lopez may be saying to herself, "You want me to get up there and twerk at the Super Bowl?"

"John Cho and Issa Rae should host the royal Oscar ceremony, quot; Twitter User wrote after seeing celebrities together on Monday morning".

That's because, once again, no women were nominated in this category. Who are the sizeable percentage of the Academy's director's branch who thought Todd Phillips deserved to join a club that's been denied to all but five women in 92 years?

The Academy Awards has a long and rich tradition of not recognizing female directors.

The figure includes movie producers and technical categories such as best musical score, where Icelandic maestro Hildur Gudnadottir became the ninth woman nominated. Bigelow is so far the only woman to win the award.

Industry website Deadline called Monday's nominations "basically #OscarsSoWhite Part 2: #OscarsSoWhiterAndWithMoreMen", referring to a hashtag begun in 2015 in response to the lack of diverse nominees.

"Little Women" director Greta Gerwig was excluded from the all-male ensemble in the best director category, even though her film was nominated for best picture.

One actress, for example, whose name started trending as soon as the best actress category was announced is Lupita Nyong'o, who failed to secure a nomination for her dual role in Jordan Peele's Us.

South Korean class satire "Parasite", from Bong Joon-ho, secured the final best director slot, meaning once again no women made the shortlist.

"This is something that nobody would have imagined happening ..." If "Parasite" won best picture, it would be the first foreign language film to do so.

Oh, how naive I was going into this awards season with hope - truly a risky thing to have when you're a lifelong Oscar geek desperate for a reason to defend an institution that has been increasingly indefensible as of late.

In fact, the announcement was dominated by four films directed by and largely about white men, with Joker, The Irishman, Once Upon a Time.In Hollywood and 1917 each getting nominations in the double digits for a count that added up to a whopping 41 nominations.
