Hollywood’s awards season has been an especially combustible one too

Hollywood’s awards season has been an especially combustible one too

A lot of the nominees went as expected, including Best Picture, where the Academy members ended up nominating eight films in total, including: BlackKklansman, Black Panther, Bohemian Rhapsody, Green Book, The Favourite Roma, A Star Is Born, and Vice.

While blockbuster movie "Black Panther" scored seven nominations, including one for best picture, director Ryan Coogler did not make it into the slate of directing nominees. But let's have a look in a little more detail at some of the most shocking moments from the Oscars 2019 nominations...

Fast forward nearly ten years later and two other films became contenders for major Oscar consideration that did not involve effects related nominations. The history-making nomination for Best Picture is a breath of fresh air considering the rest of the nominations were less - how should we say - shocking? Roma has ten nominations, including Best Picture, tying The Favourite for most of the year.

Spike Lee on Tuesday received his first nomination in the Best Director category for his Ku Klux Klan comedy-drama BlacKkKlansman.

In August, the Academy - under fire for being too elitist - announced it would add a "best popular film" award. And Roma also landed both actress nominations, with breakthrough performer Yalitza Aparicio getting a Best Actress nomination and Marina de Tavira scoring in Best Supporting Actress.

Despite having directed over two dozen features, including a prolific string of modern classics like Do The Right Thing, Crooklyn and 25th Hour, Spike has been passed over year after year by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Science, even as some of his films have been nominated in other categories.

One of the most talked-about snubs from the morning was the omission from the Best Documentary Feature category of the beloved Mr. Rogers doc "Won't You Be My Neighbor", which was the year's biggest non-fiction hit (it made more than $21 million at the box office). One shock to the Oscars Best Picture system, however, is Moonlight director Barry Jenkins's If Beale Street Could Talk - or rather the lack thereof. In addition to her buzz for "Mary Poppins Returns", the actress was widely considered a possibility for her supporting role in husband John Krasinski's smash horror film "A Quiet Place". She also has yet to win.

A key piece of evidence in the investigation is a dress from the night in question nine years ago. The Journal reported that Mayorga's DNA is on the dress, and so is the DNA of an unknown party.

A Star Is Born, the latest iteration of the classic musical romance, scored in most big categories, with nominations for three of the four acting prizes - Bradley Cooper, Lady Gaga and their co-star Sam Elliott.

The singer also picked up another nod for best original song for Shallow, along with co-writers Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando and Andrew Wyatt.

But that didn't cut much ice with the Academy, which has given Jon M Chu's film version of Kevin Kwan's best-seller precisely zero nominations.
