Oscar Nominations 2019: The Favourite, Roma lead the race; complete list:
Mexican filmmaker Alfonso Cuaron’s Roma and Yorgos Lanthimos’ s period drama The Favourite are in a tie with 10 nominations each for the 91st Academy Awards, where an India-set drama on menstruation, apart from three films backed by Reliance Entertainment, will contend for Oscars — lending a touch of diversity to the line-up.
Cuaron’s Netflix film Roma earned nominations in the Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actress In A Leading Role categories. Diversity is in full bloom in the Oscar nomination list this year. Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born and Christian Bale-starrer Vice have eight nominations each, followed by seven nominations for Black Panther, which has become the first superhero film ever to make it to the Best Picture category at the Oscars.
