This year, multiple controversies are plaguing the Oscars - none of them related to last year´s bombshell.
Lady Gaga is the first person to be nominated for the Best Actress and Best Song categories in the same year, in the history of the Oscars. The film won three Academy Awards but was never nominated for Best Picture.
The academy rightfully recognized directors Spike Lee, Paweł Pawlikowski, Yorgos Lanthimos, Alfonso Cuarón and Adam McKay in the best director category. "Thank you Ale A. Garcia and @marielmmayorga for waking me up". Some had campaigned for Debra Granik ("Leave No Trace") or Chloe Zhao ("The Rider") to become the sixth woman ever nominated for best director. "The cultural impact the movie has had for nearly a year now, all leads to this moment, the highest form of recognition from our peers". Jenkins was shut out of the Best Director category as well. However, his very timely BlacKkKlansman proved it had the winning recipe. "Eighth Grade" might not be suiting up for the Dolby Theatre now, but the team will still get to celebrate Oscars weekend in a much more relaxed setting: By the beach at the Film Independent Spirit Awards where it is a leading nominee.
However, we couldn't help but notice that there are some notable names that have been left off the list this year.
At last year's ceremony, Get Out paved the way for groundbreaking horror films to make waves at the Oscars.
Higuain in London, Morata off to Atletico as Cahill leaves Chelsea
The striker is expected to complete a loan move from Juventus , with the Daily Mail reporting he arrived in London yesterday. A capitulation at Arsenal was the moment for Maurizio Sarri to unload pent-up frustration with his Chelsea squad.
Trump offers a ‘Dreamers’ deal for border-money proposal
Whatever happened to winning so much that we'd get sick of winning, Donald?! "I intend to move to this legislation this week". Any proposal that doesn't confer a path to citizenship for a sizable number of illegals will be dead on arrival, I think.
Total lunar eclipse on Sunday
As a result, the moon can be as "close" as 225,310 miles from Earth during perigee - this is known as a " supermoon ". A blood moon last occurred in July 2018, though clouds largely obscured the celestial phenomenon in the UK.
The nominations will be announced on Tuesday starting at 5:20 am Pacific time (1320 GMT). Actor Adam Driver was nominated for actor in a supporting role.
Roma's best picture nomination, meanwhile, marks the first time a Netflix title has been shortlisted for the top prize.
"To see an individual like Ryan Coogler [director of "Black Panther"] - who had something to say, who had a story, who had a vision, who had questions about his life and his background - to put all of that into a story that resonates the way this film does was incredible", he added. Green Book has five, scoring key notices (like Film Editing) and missing others (like Best Director). In a banner year for documentaries, the Fred Rogers documentary "Won't You Be My Neighbor" was snubbed despite more than $22 million in ticket sales (a huge sum for a doc). She ultimately lost out to Guillermo del Toro for his Best Picture victor "The Shape of Water".
Viola Davis can do it all. "Who's watching that film now?"
He definitely has a bright future behind the camera, but he'll have to wait for an Oscar nomination.
