Netflix And The 2020 Oscars: What You Need To Know

Netflix And The 2020 Oscars: What You Need To Know”

In an industry criticized for its lack of diversity, the Oscars picked only one non-white acting nominee - British star Cynthia Erivo, who plays U.S. anti-slavery icon Harriet Tubman in "Harriet". However, the two-time Razzie victor missed out on a nomination despite rave reviews for her work in the film.

Another double nominee this year is Cynthia Erivo, who's up for best actress and best original song for Harriet.

No joke - the controversial but acclaimed antihero film "Joker" is leading the Oscars pack with a historic 11 nods.

Antonio Banderas, 59, and Jonathan Pryce, 72, have both had long and illustrious careers, but both got their first Oscar nominations on Monday.

Last week, the British Film Academy was criticized for its nominations' lack of diversity; all best picture contenders were directed by men and not a single person of color was among the nominated actors.

Margot Robbie has been nominated for her second Academy Award. He also congratulated "Waterboy" actress Kathy Bates a.k.a. "Mama", who was nominated for her performance in Clint Eastwood's "Richard Jewell". In Hollywood, Ford v Ferrari, and 1917.

I understand why fans of Jennifer Lopez ("Hustlers"), Eddie Murphy ("Dolemite Is My Name") and Adam Sandler ("Uncut Gems") are disappointed by their MIA status in the acting categories.

It wouldn't be the Oscars if it didn't piss everyone off, and as expected, this year's slate was largely non-inclusive - that is to say, white and male where it matters most - ensuring that AMPAS' measures to diversify their voting body hasn't really done much good, yet at least.

One of the biggest controversies sparked by the 2020 Oscar nominations happened in the Best Directing category.

The Academy can't control how its 9,000-odd members cast their ballots, as much as it may wish it could. But, none of the actors in the film received a nomination in the lead and supporting acting categories. Four-time nominee Phoenix, astonishing in the lead role, is long overdue for an Oscar.

Tom Hanks, nominated for best supporting actor for A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, has been nominated for six acting Oscars, winning twice, but this is the first time he has been nominated in the supporting actor category.

Some users even went as far to say that Johansson's performance in "Marriage Story" wasn't even worthy of a nomination.

What's unfair about any of this?
