The 91st Oscar nominations were announced today in Hollywood with Kumail Nanjiani and Tracee Ellis Ross doing the hosting duty.
Popular films included A Star is Born, Black Panther, Vice, Bohemian Rhapsody, The Favourite and Roma, with the latter two receiving ten nominations each.
As always with any major film nominations, there is a lot of hubbub and vitriol after the announcements – and this year did not disappoint.
Maybe the biggest and most noteworthy story was the nomination of Black Panther for Best Picture, making it the first ever superhero and Marvel movie to pick up such a prestigious nod.

Claire Foy, Justin Hurwitz, and Timothée Chalamet already left out of Oscar nominations? I’m going back to bed.

Woke up to see Toni Collette in Hereditary wasn't nominated for Best Actress. I truly thought Get Out would set a precedent for the Academy's recognition of horror films. #OscarNoms pic.twitter.com/UNKU2YhGBY
