A Star Is Born earned eight nominations, but in one of the morning's biggest surprises, Bradley Cooper was not nominated for Best Director. Will "Roma" be Netflix´s first contender for the Academy´s top prizes?

Alfonso Cuaron's semiautobiographical look at the life of a Mexico City maid and the family she serves received 10 nominations overall, tied with "The Favourite" for the most nods this year. Only Orson Welles ("Citizen Kane") and Warren Beatty ("Reds", "Heaven Can Wait") have landed four.

"There has never been a foreign-language Oscar hopeful that has had the support that this one has", Feinberg said.

However, since the release of Black Panther, celebrities, critics and nearly everyone in Hollywood was in the favour of the Chadwick Boseman-starrer to find a nomination at the Best Picture and it finally did today. Despite the overwhelming popularity of comic book movies, they had previously been shunned from Hollywood's top honor, to the consternation of some industry insiders. In 2016, "Moonlight" famously won best picture after an on-stage mix-up with "La La Land", but Barry Jenkins did not win for best director.

Though she's yet to capture a Grand Slam title, Keys has recently been remarkably consistent at the year's biggest tournaments. Then the Japanese failed to serve out the set, and that was the moment that something broke in her performance.

Netflix also showcased the movie on the home screen of its streaming service, something its rivals from traditional studios could not do. Eighth Grade got shut out, for instance. Strangely, A Star Is Born and Roma were both left out of Best Film Editing, a category in which the Best Picture victor is nearly always nominated. The other nominees were Lanthimos, Cuaron, Pawel Pawlikowski ("Cold War") and Adam McKay ("Vice").

The point in awards season where film fans go from arguing about who should be nominated to who should've been nominated.

For best actor, Rami Malek, who is Egyptian-American, was nominated for his portrayal of Freddie Mercury in "Bohemian Rhapsody." Tavira was something a surprise, while Claire Foy of "First Man" was left out.

Notably, the academy expanded the number of best-picture nominees for precisely this reason, after "The Dark Knight" failed to secure a best-picture nomination a decade ago. Notably snubbed was Timothy Chalamet ("Beautiful Boy"). After original host Kevin Hart left the ceremony in a dispute over his homophobic tweets and jokes, the Academy has been unable to replace him.

Besides, apart from those on the stage, there were several leaders in the anti-saffron camp who skipped the rally. The strategy of each of the four contenders ( Mamata Banerjee , Rahul Gandhi, Mayawati and KCR) is clear...

Netflix's milestone comes just five years after the streamer earned its first-ever Oscar nomination in the best documentary feature category for "The Square".

While B-Coop was acknowledged for playing the alcoholic rock star in his remake of A Star Is Born, his directing talents were unrecognized. Despite an enviable string of awards and more than $400 million in worldwide box office, Cooper's lauded remake was nearly totally ignored at the Golden Globes.

Also nominated for the first time is Ludwig Goransson, the Swedish-born composer of "Black Panther".

By contrast, last year's ratings sank to an all-time low of 26.5 million viewers, per Nielsen data - a drop of almost 20% from the previous year, and way off from the more than 40 million the telecast attracted as recently as in 2013 and '14. Though ratings for award shows have generally been dropping, the downturn prompted the academy to revamp this year's telecast.
