Internet wants Issa Rae and John Cho to host the 2020 Oscars

It won the 2019 Digital Publishing Award for best digital column in Canada.

It was only last week that Karey Burke, president of ABC Entertainment, owned by Disney, whose network broadcasts the ceremony, revealed that the 2020 Oscars will not have a "traditional host".

Voting for Oscar nominees ended last Tuesday, two days after the Golden Globes. "Don't worry", I told a group of folks who'd already rightfully given up.

Despite Oscar recognition for Jordon Peele's directorial debut "Get Out", his sophomore film "Us" was missing from the nominations round up.

And yet, here we are.

And sometimes the best a film can hope for is to announce that it is an Academy Award nominee.

There are nine nominees for best picture. The grand total of nominations for all of those films combined?

Adam Masina replaced the injured Kiko Femenia, while Adrian Mariappa entered for Christian Kabasele suspended. Champions Manchester City can move to second if they win at Aston Villa in the day's late match.

One Twitter user, for example, wrote, "there are always snubs but that all the snubs this year are female directors and people of color is. a BAD look", while another noted, "WOW there are literally more men nominated for pretending to be the pope than female directors".

The nominees for best animated feature film: "How to Train a Dragon: The Hidden World"; "Toy Story 4"; "I Lost My Body"; "Klaus"; "Missing Link". "They are: "Ford v. Ferrari"; "The Irishman"; "Jojo Rabbit"; "Joker"; "Little Women"; "Marriage Story"; "1917"; Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood"; "Parasite". On what planet is the screenplay for 1917 more deserving than The Farewell, Pain and Glory or Booksmart?

And it's not like there weren't options: The Farewell, Hustlers and Little Women were all films both written and directed by women that missed out this year.

Coming off a year where the primary two films celebrated were deemed wildly problematic in their representations of race (Green Book) and sexuality (Bohemian Rhapsody), it's hard to trust the Oscars to get it together in anytime soon.

Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody won the most awards previous year, picking up four prizes including best actor.

Renee Zellweger, who has swept the best actress nominations so far during this awards season, headed the best actress Oscar shortlist thanks to her acclaimed turn as showbiz legend Judy Garland in "Judy".
