Roma and The Favourite Lead the 2019 Oscar Nominees

The nominations for the 91st Academy Awards were announced bright and early Tuesday morning with the help of Kumail Nanjiani and Tracee Ellis Ross. The Favourite and Roma tied for the most nominations with 10 apiece, and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ scrapped Best Popular Film category proved unnecessary, since blockbuster Black Panther snagged a Best Picture slot on its own merits.

Among the first-time nominations (Spike Lee for Directing) and surprises (Marina de Tavira for Supporting Actress) there were snubs, too. Academy voters shunned Won’t You Be My Neighbor? for Documentary Feature and shut Best Picture frontrunner A Star Is Born out of both the Film Editing and Directing categories, seemingly dinging its chances of winning. A Best Picture win under those circumstances would at least be unprecedented: Only twice since Best Film Editing became a category has a movie won Best Picture without being nominated for Directing as well, and both of those (Driving Miss Daisy and Argo) at least had Editing nominations.

The complete list of nominees is below. The Academy Awards will be presented on Feb. 24, and you can check out more of Slate’s Oscars coverage here.
