  • Jojo Rabbit and Little Women

In an industry criticized for its lack of diversity, the Oscars picked only one non-white acting nominee - British star Cynthia Erivo, who plays USA anti-slavery icon Harriet Tubman in "Harriet".

For costume design the nominated films are Jojo Rabbit, Once Upon A Time.

The Academy has historically loved Disney films in the Best Animated Feature Film category, and although Toy Story 4 did make it in, Frozen 2 shockingly wasn't nominated.

The last time an actor has earned two nominations for acting in the same year was in 2008 when Cate Blanchett achieved the feat.

Scarlett Johansson is nominated in two acting categories, for best actress in "Marriage Story" and best supporting actress in "Jojo Rabbit". Not a good look for an awards show whose primary fanbase - whether they like or it not - does not look like the cast of The Irishman.

Most glaringly, Jennifer Lopez, long considered a supporting actress front-runner for her performance in "Hustlers", was also denied her first Oscar nomination. Both are up for best actor, Banderas for "Pain and Glory" and Pryce for "The Two Popes".

South Korean class satire "Parasite", from Bong Joon-ho, secured the final best director slot, meaning once again no women made the shortlist. Five of those, most recently "Roma" past year, won the foreign film Oscar but not best picture.

Cynthia Erivo also bagged a nod for her star turn in biopic Harriet while Sir Elton John and Bernie Taupin have been nominated for the best original song for their work on Rocketman.

Parasite is also nominated for best worldwide feature film alongside Corpus Christi, Honeyland, Les Miserable and Pain And Glory.

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

"Bombshell", the female-led drama which depicts the sexual harassment scandal that ousted Fox News co-founder Roger Ailes, was a surprise absence from the best picture list.

"Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood" was also nominated in just about every category it was expected to, including Tarantino for directing and screenplay, best actor for Leonardo DiCaprio and best supporting actor for Brad Pitt. "Once Upon a Time.in Hollywood" came out July 25.
