The wait is finally over, as this year’s highly anticipated Oscar nominations have been announced!

The nominations were announced by Kumail Nanjiani from The Big Sick and Tracee Ellis Ross from Black-ish at a press conference in Los Angeles. And as always, there were surprises both in terms of who – and what – received nominations and those that didn’t.

We weren’t in the least bit shocked to find Black Panther and A Star Is Born on the list, but were a little disappointed not to see as much of Mary Poppins Returns as we had hoped. Mainly in the form of a Best Actress nomination for Emily Blunt.

Roma and The Favourite lead this year’s race, with a remarkable ten nominations each; while A Star Is Born and Vice both earned a very impressive eight.

Black Panther received seven, but holds a brand new record of its own, as it is the first superhero movie in history to be up for the Best Picture category. A victory in itself, if we may say!

The 91st Academy Awards ceremony – which is still sans host following the Kevin Hart scandal – will take place on Sunday, February 24.

Take a look at the Oscar 2019 nominations in full below.
