All four of those films are nominated for best picture, alongside Ford V Ferrari, released in the United Kingdom as Le Mans '66, Jojo Rabbit, Little Women, Marriage Story and Parasite.

However, even "The Irishman" couldn't match the 11 nods for "Joker", the most-nominated movie of the year.

"Joker" is the leading nominee for the Academy Awards with 11 nominations, with "The Irishman" close behind.

Nominations for "Marriage Story" included nods for its leads, Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson, and Laura Dern for best supporting actress.

All the nominated directors were men, dashing the hopes of Greta Gerwig in the traditionally male club for "Little Women", although she did get a best adapted screenplay nod. The film received six nominations, including for best picture. In Hollywood and Bong Joon-Ho for Parasite.

Best supporting actor nominees are Tom Hanks (A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood), Anthony Hopkins (The Two Popes), Al Pacino (The Irishman), Joe Pesci (The Irishman) and Brad Pitt (Once Upon a Time.in Hollywood).

The 2020 Oscar nominations are out, and unsurprisingly, they're already causing a firestorm on social media.

Also missing from that list: Meryl Streep in "Little Women", Nicole Kidman in "Bombshell" (despite her two co-stars, Charlize Theron and Margot Robbie, being nominated), and Zhao Shuzhen in "The Farewell".

While original screenplay is between Knives Out, Marriage Story, 1917, Once Upon A Time... Just 25 years old, Ronan now has four Oscar nominations. Sam Mendes, who already won big at the Golden Globes, is a strong contender in the director category for "1917", which garnered several other nominations as well. Netflix had a banner year, with 24 nominations, including its first nod for Best Documentary Feature.

A remarkable film about a cross-cultural journey, The Farewell wasn't just snubbed, it was shut out entirely.

Regina King was named best actress in a drama series for Watchmen, winning ahead of British stars Olivia Colman (The Crown) and Jodie Comer (Killing Eve). The 92nd Academy Awards ceremony is February 9, 2020, and will be broadcast on ABC at 5pm PT/8pm ET. Canadian sound engineer Paul Massey earned his ninth nod for Best Sound Mixing for Ford v Ferrari (he won previous year for Bohemian Rhapsody).
