The 91st Oscar nominations were announced today and they gave us some doozies. Below I’ve included all of the nominations in each of the 24 categories. Roma and The Favourite each got 10 nominations, even if they weren’t all for the categories I guessed it they would get. Meanwhile, A Star Is Born and Vice each got 8 nominations. However, Bradley Cooper surprisingly missed Best Director. Vice picked up 3 acting nominations, including Christian Bale, Amy Adams, and Sam Rockwell. Meanwhile, “Black Panther” became the first superhero film to receive a Best Picture nomination, despite Ryan Coogler and Michael B. Jordan missing. Check out the nominees below!
