Ryan Coogler’s unique vision of Wakanda also scored six other nominations from the Academy.

“Roma” received 10 nominations — which ties it with “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” for the most nominations for a foreign language film.

In total, Alfonso Cuarón’s “Roma” is nominated in the following categories: Best Picture, Lead Actress for Yalitza Aparicio, Supporting Actress for Marina de Tavira, Director, Original Screenplay, Cinematography, Best Foreign Language Film, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, Production Design.

Cuarón not only directed the film, but also produced, wrote, and was the cinematographer for it as well.

The only other individuals to have accomplished this feat in history are the Coen Brothers for “No Country for Old Men,” Warren Beatty for both “Heaven Can Wait” and “Reds,” and Orson Welles for “Citizen Kane, according to Deadline.

Netflix officially has its first-ever horse in the best picture race.

“Roma” marks Netflix’s first Best Picture nominee — but there’s more to the story than “Roma” and its impressive showing in the nominations list. In 2019, Netflix productions garnered a total of 15 Academy Awards nominations.

Yalitza Aparicio is only the fourth Latinx actress to be nominated for Best Actress in Oscars history — and the first in 14 years.

Nominated for her outstanding work in “Roma,” this was also Aparicio’s first acting experience ever.

“The Favourite” not only scored 10 nominations — but three of those were for the three main actresses in the film.

Olivia Colman received a Best Actress nomination, while both Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz scored Best Supporting Actress nominations.

Lady Gaga made history with nominations for both Best Actress and Best Original Song for “A Star Is Born.”

However, she’s not the first person to receive both acting and song nominations for the same film. That honor still belongs to Mary J. Blige, who was nominated for Best Supporting Actress and Best Song for “Mudbound” in 2018.

The newest “A Star Is Born” is the fourth version of the film to receive nominations — and both Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper are the third lead acting pair to be nominated as best in their respective categories.


The first version of “A Star Is Born” hit screens in 1937, and both Fredric March and Janet Gaynor received Best Actor and Actress nominations.

In 1954, stars Judy Garland and James Mason also received Best Actress and Actor nominations.

The 1976 version, which starred Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson, is the only version to not have had these two nominations.
