  • Oscars 2020 Nominations: 16 Biggest Shocks, Snubs & Surprises

Nominations have been announced in eight categories so far, with the remaining 16 shortlists to follow shortly. No one has ever won two acting awards in the same year.

Another double nominee this year is Cynthia Erivo, who's up for best actress and best original song for "Harriet". All in all, the film was nominated for five awards, though didn't win any.

This year's nominees will for the second straight year go without a host. The late William Wyler was nominated for best director 12 times. "It makes me feel very, very very young", Banderas said in an interview.

However, even "The Irishman" couldn't match the 11 nods for "Joker", the most-nominated movie of the year. The youngest to be nominated for the fourth time was Jennifer Lawrence at 24 in 2015.

Meanwhile, Parasite, a thriller by South Korean director Bong Joon Ho, received six nominations, including Best Picture. Five of those, most recently "Roma" a year ago, won the foreign film Oscar but not best picture.

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

Add to that nominations for the achievement in cinematography, costume design, film editing, production design, and visual effects awards (along with a nomination for best adapted screenplay, which it shares with Joker), and Netflix has to be feeling good about The Irishman heading into the show. His father, Alfred Newman, won nine Oscars in 43 nominations.

Well-deserving actors and artists got their nods, while some of the finest work of the year was completely ignored per the Oscars' unadventurous prerogative, and a few weird nominations just made no sense at all. 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.
