'Joker' leads Oscar noms, '1917', 'Irishman' close behind
Female filmmakers have been shut out, “Parasite” has made history and “Joker” has edged out all other films in this year's Academy Awards nominations. Todd Phillips' R-rated supervillain origin story leads all films with 11 nominations, including best picture.
“The Irishman,” “Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood” and “1917 ” trail close behind with 10 nominations apiece.
For the 87th time, the academy selected all-male directing nominees. The nominations had some surprises, with Jennifer Lopez and Beyonce missing out on their first Oscar nominations.
The 92nd Academy Awards will be held on on Feb. 9 in Los Angeles and for the second year in a row will go without a host.
