2019 Oscar Nominees

February 4, 2019

The COMPLETE LIST of 2019 Oscar Nominees is below.

The 2019 Oscars ceremony will be held on February 24, 2019 at the Kodak Theater in Hollywood.

Roma and The Favourite each received 10 Oscar nominations, tying for the most nominations a movie received in 2019.

The biggest winner, when it comes to 2019 Oscar Nominees, is Roma and Netflix*. The film not only earned Best Picture and Best Director Oscar nominations, it also took a somewhat unexpected Best Actress nomination for its wonderful, yet completely unknown lead, Yalitza Aparicio, who plays Cleo. But it also earned a Best Supporting Actress nomination for the even more unknown, Marina de Tavira, who plays the mother, Seniora Sofia.

Really, not a lot of other surprises in the 2019 Oscar Nominees announcement. The most interesting race this year is Best Director. Two foreign films are included in the category, Roma (Alfonso Cuaron), which was to be expected. However, Cold War‘s director, Pawel Pawlikowski, getting a Best Director nomination was a huge surprise. With his nomination thrown into the mix, Best Picture front runner, Green Room, had its director Peter Farrelly left out in the cold. Bradley Cooper was also snubbed for a Best Director nod for his directorial debut, A Star Is Born.

In the Best Actor race, there was one long shot spot, and two viable candidates, and Willem Dafoe took that spot away for his role in At Eternity’s Gate from Ethan Hawke for his role in First Reformed.

The biggest shock, snub and surprise on this year’s Oscar nominations list is that the favorite to win the Best Documentary award, Won’t You Be My Neighbor?, wasn’t even nominated. Neither was Three Identical Strangers, which landed on many critics’ Top 10 lists.

2019 Oscar winners will be announced live, right here, on February 24, 2019, beginning at 5:30PM PST.

*Alfonso Cuaron’s Roma marked a number of firsts for Netflix for Oscar nominations. The black-and-white, autobiographical drama not only received the streamer’s first best picture nomination, but also nabbed Netflix’s first noms for best director, actress in a leading role for Yalitza Aparicio, original screenplay, foreign-language film, production design, sound editing and sound mixing. Marina de Tavira was also nominated for best supporting actress, while Cuaron received a nom for cinematography — but these are not firsts for Netflix.

In another first, Roma is the first best picture nominee for which there are no box office grosses. The vast majority of cinemas won’t play a Netflix title since the streamer doesn’t honor traditional windows. Netflix was able to book Roma in roughly 100 independent cinemas in the U.S. — many of those were rented — for several weeks or more, but hasn’t reported any numbers.
