2019 Oscar nominations announced

Roma, The Favourite, Vice, BlackKklansman and Black Panther are among the front runners

by Jennie Kermode

Vice has eight Oscar nominations
Vice has eight Oscar nominations

Roma has taken the lead in this year's Oscar race with ten nominations, followed by Vice and A Star Is Born with eight apiece. Black Panther has seven and BlackKklansman and The Favourite six each. The nominations were revealed this morning in a short ceremony presented by Kumail Nanjiani and Tracee Ellis Ross in Los Angeles.

We spoke with Yorgos Lanthimos, Emma Stone, Olivia Colman, Nicholas Hoult, Joe Alwyn and Tony McNamara about The Favourite last year, ahead of the remarkable awards success that it has enjoyed this year. More surprising is the success of Vice and Black Panther, with comedies traditionally disadvantaged at the Oscars and fantasy films even more so.

Roma's lead will surprise no-one, and supports Guillermo Del Toro's assertion that Mexican directors are set to dominate the awards from now on. It has tough competition in the Best Foreign Language Film category, however, with Nadine Labaki's Capernaum and Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck's Never Look Away both making a big impression on critics and audiences alike.

The winners will be announced on the 24th of February - or, in the UK, the early hours of the 25th. As usual, we'll be liveblogging the event here and livetweeting it at @EyeForFilm
