Here’s the Deeply Disappointing List of 2020 Oscar Nominations

After the outrage at the Golden Globes just a week ago over its lack of women in the director’s category, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences had a chance to do things the right way. But on Monday morning while announcing the list of 2020 Oscar nominations Star Trek star John Cho and Insecure star Issa Rae read the names of five men in the director category. “Congratulations to those men,” Rae said with a hint of disappointment, calling to mind Natalie Portman’s jab at the Golden Globes’s male directors last year.

If that wasn’t bad enough, the polarizing Joker leads the list of nominations with 11, including nods for Best Picture, Best Director, and Lead Actor for Joaquin Phoenix. Beyond that, the wonderful The Farewell was completely snubbed, despite Awkwafina taking home an acting award at the Golden Globes. Also, Adam Sandler didn’t get the acting nomination he so desperately deserved.

Though it’s unforgivable that Greta Gerwig didn’t get a director nomination for Little Women, she did get a nomination for Best Picture and Adapted Screenplay. Martin Scorsese now becomes the most-nominated living director, with nine nominations (even if his nomination should have gone to Gerwig).

One bright spot from the list of nominees is Parasite getting the love it so deserves with key nominations for Best Picture, Director, and Original Screenplay.

The 92nd Oscars will take place on Sunday, Feb. 9 and will be aired live on ABC at 8p.m. ET. See the full list of nominations below:
