The Favourite and Roma head list of Oscars nominations

‘The Favourite’ and ‘Roma’ have earned 10 nominations each for the upcoming Oscars.

The Yorgos Lanthimos-directed drama movie has been nominated for a host of gongs at the glitzy awards ceremony next month, including the coveted Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress in a Leading Role (Olivia Colman) and Best Original Screenplay prizes.

The period movie – which tells the story of the relationship between two cousins vying for the approval of Queen Anne – is joined on 10 nominations by ‘Roma’, the black-and-white epic from Netflix.

The film follows the life of a live-in housekeeper working for a middle-class family in Mexico.

The Alfonso Cuaron-directed hit has, in fact, tied the record held by 2000’s ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’ for the most nominations received by a foreign language film.

‘Roma’ is in contention for some of the most sought-after awards of the evening on February 24, including the Best Picture gong, as well as Best Director and Original Screenplay.

Meanwhile, Marvel’s ‘Black Panther’ has made history, becoming the first comic book movie to earn a Best Picture nomination.

The much-discussed blockbuster has also earned nominations for Best Costume Design, Production Design, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, Original Score and Original song.

Elsewhere, ‘A Star is Born’ features prominently among the list of nominees.

The Bradley Cooper-directed drama – which stars Lady Gaga – has earned eight nominations in total, including Best Picture, Actress in a Leading Role (Gaga) and Actor in a Leading Role (Cooper).

The widely acclaimed movie – which tells the story of a a hard-drinking musician who falls in love with a singer – has also received nods in the Adapted Screenplay, Original Song, Cinematography, Sound Mixing and Actor in a Supporting Role categories (Sam Elliott).

Gaga, 32, faces stiff competition in the Actress in a Leading Role category, where she has been nominated alongside Yalitza Aparicio, Glenn Close, Olivia Colman and Melissa McCarthy.

Bradley faces a similarly tough task for the Best Actor in a Leading Role gong, with Christian Bale, Willem Dafoe, Rami Malek and Viggo Mortensen all vying for the coveted prize at the annual awards bash.

‘A Star is Born’ is joined on eight nominations by the Adam McKay-directed drama ‘Vice’, which stars Bale as former US Vice President Dick Cheney.

The acclaimed movie is also in contention for the Best Picture and Best Director prize, which is being contested by McKay, Spike Lee, Paweł Pawlikowski, Yorgos Lanthimos and Alfonso Cuaron.

Spike’s nod in the Best Picture category for ‘BlacKkKlansman’ represents a career-first for the veteran filmmaker, whose previous hits include ‘Do the Right Thing’ and ‘She’s Gotta Have It’.

In total, the movie – which tells the story of the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department – has claimed six nominations.
