NEWS: 2019 Oscars Announces List of Winners
The 91st Academy Awards are set to honour the best films and performances released in 2018. Roma and The Favourite lead all films this year with 10 total nominations each, including Best Picture and Best Director. With Roma, Netflix looks to make history by winning its first major prizes in a handful of categories, including Picture, Director, Cinematography, and Foreign Language Film. Roma would also be a historic Best Picture winner as no foreign-language film has ever won the Oscars’ biggest prize.
In addition to Roma and The Favourite, other films nominated in multiple categories include Green Book, BlacKkKlansman, A Star Is Born, Vice, and Bohemian Rhapsody. The Oscars are set to air after a years-worth of controversies that found the Academy introducing and removing a Best Popular Film category and reversing their decision to move four of the categories to the telecast’s commercial breaks.
