This morning's 92nd Academy Award nominations were a wasted opportunity to honour a year in which one of the few hopeful narratives in this burning world was that the push for diversity in cinematic storytelling seemed to actually be paying off.

Pugh was nominated for best supporting actress alongside Johansson for Jojo Rabbit, Kathy Bates for Richard Jewell, Laura Dern for Marriage Story and Margot Robbie for Bombshell. This is the 12th time an actor has pulled off the feat.

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".

The 10 nominations for "The Irishman" tied the most for a Netflix film, following "Roma" past year.

Another double nominee this year is Cynthia Erivo, who's up for best actress and best original song for "Harriet". The grand total of nominations for all of those films combined? Mary J. Blige did it in 2018 for "Mudbound" and Lady Gaga did it a year ago for "A Star Is Born".

Thailand reports case of coronavirus from China — UN agency
China's reluctance to disclose information contributed to the spread of SARS, or severe acute respiratory syndrome, back in 2002. And, health authorities in China are monitoring the health status of more than 700 close contacts, including healthcare workers.

In fact, the announcement was dominated by four films directed by and largely about white men, with Joker, The Irishman, Once Upon a Time.In Hollywood and 1917 each getting nominations in the double digits for a count that added up to a whopping 41 nominations.

Best production design is between The Irishman, Jojo Rabbit, 1917, Once Upon A Time. The academy has nominated only men for best director in all but five years, and 2020 is no exception. Despite being much younger, the category's other three nominees, Adam Driver, Leonardo DiCaprio and Joaquin Phoenix, all have multiple Oscar nominations.

The nominees for best worldwide film are: "Corpus Christi", Poland; "Honeyland", North Macdeonia; "Les Miserables", France; "Pain and Glory", Spain; "Parasite", South Korea. Five of those, most recently "Roma" past year, won the foreign film Oscar but not best picture.

Parasite is also nominated for best global feature film alongside Corpus Christi, Honeyland, Les Miserable and Pain And Glory. It did pick up an original song nod, however. Somehow, though, it wasn't even nominated. Both fall short of Walt Disney, however, who had 59. So would nominating Eddie Murphy for Best Actor for "Dolemite" Akwafina for Best Actress for "The Farewell" or Jennifer Lopez for Best Supporting Actress for "Hustlers".
