The much-awaited Oscar nominations are finally out and while there were some obvious contenders getting the nod, there were some surprises too. The 92nd Acadamy Awards will take place at the Dolby Theatre Los Angles, California on the 10th of February. The event is known for being star-studded, glamorous and mostly magic for Film and Tv enthusiasts. This time around, a comic-book origin story about Batman’s biggest rival, “Joker” scored 11 nominations including best director for Phillips, best picture and best actor for Joaquin Phoenix. Others in line were, Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” and Sam Mendes’ war drama “1917” followed close behind.

The main talk about the same has been about how female directors were shut out from the category overall. However, what’s more important has been how Netflix has been leading the pack over other studios with a staggering 24 nominations. Netflix landed two spots in coveted best picture category for Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman and Noah Baumbach’s Marriage Story.
