'Roma' Star Yalitza Aparicio Had Best Reaction To Oscar Nomination

Lucy Boynton's Celine dress at the Golden Globes was 1970s-inspired perfection

Cuaron tied the record for most decorated Oscar nominee ever for one film with four nods for his black-and-white, memory-drenched masterpiece.

While B-Coop was acknowledged for playing the alcoholic rock star in his remake of A Star Is Born, his directing talents were unrecognized.

Awards experts consider "Roma" a front-runner to win best picture at the Oscars ceremony on February 24, though they say it has hurdles to overcome. The best picture picks are Black Panther, BlackkKlansman, Bohemian Rhapsody, The Favourite, Green Book, Roma, A Star is Born and Vice.The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has for the last several years added more than a thousand new members, nearly all of them younger and more diverse than the organization's veteran voters.

Other nominations that did not pan out included First Man, which expectedly fell short in the major categories like Picture, Director, Actor, and Supporting Actress, but didn't even pull in the expected nod for its Golden Globe-winning Justin Hurwitz score.

"The Oscars have a choice now. It says that they´re now saying okay to the hybrid cinema future of streaming + theatrical".

This year, multiple controversies are plaguing the Oscars - none of them related to last year´s bombshell.

Over the year, The Academy has sidelined superhero movies at the prestigious award functions. If all goes ahead, it would be the first ceremony without a host since the 1989 gala-one widely seen as one of the most embarrassing ever, featuring an infamous duet between actor Rob Lowe and.

The plan was scrapped a month later. He withdrew after homophobic tweets he had written years ago sparked a crippling backlash on social media. She wasn't as prominent or prevalent on the Oscar campaign, so you actually had to watch Roma to see how great she is, and how both performances feed off each other.

By all accounts, with many stars reportedly unwilling to grasp the poisoned chalice, the Academy has opted to go forward without a host.

There were a few surprises in the acting categories.

For best actor, Rami Malek, who is Egyptian-American, was nominated for his portrayal of Freddie Mercury in "Bohemian Rhapsody." Viggo Mortensen ("Green Book") and Cooper ("Star") are also contenders.

The last woman nominated in that category was Catalina Sandino Moreno for Maria Full of Grace in 2005.

But Gaga and Olivia Colman, who plays Queen Anne in "The Favourite", are expected to give her a fight.

Tracee Ellis Ross of Black-ish and Kumail Nanjiani of The Big Sick will announce the nominations in two batches, both of which will be live streamed in the video player below.
