Joker Leads Academy Awards With 11 Nominations

The 92nd Oscar nominations came and went on Monday morning with about as much social media fanfare as you'd expect at this point. There were plenty of snubs and a few surprises, but the biggest shock to the system was Warner Bros. and DC's Joker leading all movies in terms of overall nominations. Joaquin Phoenix was a lock to get nominated for Best Actor and the film was always going to get a nod for Best Score, but many of the other nominations were a bit of a surprise. All in all, Joker had 11 total nominations, more than any other film this year.

Joker was nominated for the following awards: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor in a Leading Role, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Costume Design, Best Film Editing, Best Makeup and Hairstyling, Best Original Score, Best Sound Editing, and Best Sound Mixing.

The Irishman, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and 1917 were all right behind Joker with 10 nominations each, while Marriage Story, Jojo Rabbit, Little Women, and Parasite landed six apeice.
