Despite being much younger, the category's other three nominees, Adam Driver, Leonardo DiCaprio and Joaquin Phoenix, all have multiple Oscar nominations. So, who are the biggest ommissions from the Oscar nominations 2020 list? Here's are seven standouts. "Just watch." I didn't even consider a need to assert Jennifer Lopez's nomination because I couldn't fathom them snubbing her.

Margot Robbie has been nominated for her second Academy Award.

Instead, we got another list of virtually all white men, in an identical list to the 2020 Golden Globes' Best Director nominees.

"Little Women" acting nominee Florence Pugh told Variety she was "happy that everybody is upset" over Gerwig's snub. Yet, here we are again - another year, another sausage party.

The nominees for best worldwide film are: "Corpus Christi", Poland; "Honeyland", North Macdeonia; "Les Miserables", France; "Pain and Glory", Spain; "Parasite", South Korea. Mind you, the Best Supporting Actor nominees already know that - their average age is also 71, lowered somewhat by the youngster Brad Pitt, aged 56. Luckily for De Niro, there's still a chance he'll be taking home an Oscar, as he's a producer on The Irishman.

If it wins, Parasite would become the first foreign-language film to win the Oscar for best picture.

Oscar nominations: Joker, Netflix’s The Irishman go big
The last time an actor has earned two nominations for acting in the same year was in 2008 when Cate Blanchett achieved the feat. Five of those, most recently "Roma" past year , won the foreign film Oscar but not best picture.

PSG and Monaco prepare for round two of Ligue 1 fighting
Neymar admits that he wants to play both Copa America (12 June-12 July) and the Olympic Games (22 July-8 August) this summer. Lecomte reacted well to keep out Neymar's shot early on in an even second half.

Writing on Twitter, one user summed up fan's feelings in a tweet reading, "There were not five better performances by a lead actress than Lupita Nyong'o's extraordindary [sic] performance in Us".

Alfred Newman's 43 Oscar nominations is somehow not a record.

She hasn't a chance this year - the prize will nearly certainly go to Dern - but it's nice to know that a septuagenarian isn't out of the game.

Oh, how naive I was going into this awards season with hope - truly a risky thing to have when you're a lifelong Oscar geek desperate for a reason to defend an institution that has been increasingly indefensible as of late.

One of GamesRadar+ and Total Film's favourite movies of past year, Apollo 11 - a attractive documentary about the moon landings - missed out on a Best Documentary nomination.

The nominees for documentary feature are: "American Factory"; "The Cave"; "The Edge of Democracy"; "For Sama"; "Honeyland".
