Oscar is a picky man who fraternizes, for the most part, with fellow white males. You’ll often find him comfortable in their homes, but that doesn’t stop Hollywood from getting dolled up each year to entice him into the shelves of more diverse living rooms. The 92nd Academy Awards nominations proved that this isn’t an easy task – they were dominated by white men – albeit talented men – but were also clear snubs to the rest.

Joker” pulled in 11 Academy nominations, while Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman” tied in with Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood” and World War 1 epic “1917” with 10 nominations each. However, black actors and actresses were almost entirely glossed over, with Cynthia Erivo being the sole nominee, in the Best Actress category.

Eddie Murphy, who was nominated for a Golden Globe for Dolomite Is My Name was ignored, as was Lupita Nyongo’s performance in “Us.” Bong Joon Ho’s “Parasite” did well with the Academy, with 6 nominations that included best picture, original screenplay and director – but none of its cast was nominated. Greta Gerwig’s “Little Women” found itself in quite a few categories as well, but again – Gerwig was excluded from the best director nomination. Fans would also be disappointed to know that icon Robert DeNiro did not receive a nomination for his ageless work in “The Irishman,” and Jennifer Lopez may not make a dazzling entrance at the awards as she was snubbed from her role in “Hustlers”. 

The awards ceremony will be held on February 9, broadcasted on ABC, with no host for the second year in a row. Read on to find a complete list of the nominees for 2020:
