The 2020 Oscar nominations have been revealed by the Academy

This lunchtime, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences officially announced their list of nominees for the 2020 awards.

As expected, Netflix favourite The Irishman swept the nominees’ list, with a total of 10 nominations for Martin Scorcese’s ageing gangster drama. Joker also received 10 nominations, including a hotly anticipated Best Actor nod for Joaquin Phoenix. Also leading the charge is Taika Waititi’s WWII comedy Jojo Rabbit, which received six nominations and Little Women, which also received six.

On the Irish front, Saoirse Ronan has received her fourth nomination for Best Actress — this year, for her role as Jo March for Greta Gerwig’s adaptation of Little Women. Gerwig received no less than six nominations for her adaptation, including Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay.

The awards take place on Sunday, February 9.
