The Favourite And Roma Lead 91st Academy Award Nominations

Updated: Feb 25, 2019

Carlos Peralta, Marco Graf and Yalitza Aparicio in Roma

Two movies hit double-digit nomination tallies in the 2018 Oscar nominations: Yorgos Lanthimos' The Favourite and Alfonso Cuaron's Roma. Almost every category saw a surprise or another, depending on who you ask, with almost every one of the eight Best Picture nominees missing something along the way. There were impressive performances by BlacKkKlansman and Vice, and disappointments for First Man and If Beale Street Could Talk, not to mention those titles omitted entirely like Crazy Rich Asians. Category by category, Screen On Screen's verdict is that this is an interesting slate, though overall the verdict is much cooler: a Best Picture nomination for Bohemian Rhapsody alongside only seven others (or even just at all), with one of those seven being Green Book, is a horrible show, and a damning indictment on an Academy that claimed to be changing. The 91st Oscars will take place on the 24th of February. All the nominations below.
