The 2019 Oscar nominations were announced on Tuesday, January 22.

The Academy Awards will air live February 24 at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET on ABC.

Full list of 2019 Oscar nominations:

Best Picture: Only 8 films (out of potential 10) made the final cut

“Black Panther”
“BlacKkKlansman”
“Bohemian Rhapsody”
“The Favourite”
“Green Book”
“Roma”
“A Star Is Born”
“Vice”

Best Actor:

Christian Bale, “Vice”
Bradley Cooper, “A Star Is Born”
Willem Dafoe, “At Eternity’s Gate”
Rami Malek, “Bohemian Rhapsody” (will win)
Viggo Mortensen, “Green Book”

Analysis:

The only fresh face among the five nominated actors is Rami Malek, for Bohemian Rhapsody.

This is Bradley Cooper’s fourth Oscar Nomination.

Christian Bale is already a Best Supporting Actor winner, for David O. Russell’s The Fighter, and Best Actor nominee.

 

Best Actress:
Yalitza Aparicio, “Roma”
Glenn Close, “The Wife”
Olivia Colman, “The Favourite”
Lady Gaga, “A Star Is Born”
Melissa McCarthy, “Can You Ever Forgive Me?”

 

Analysis:

Tight race between Glenn Close, at her seventh nomination, for the indie that few people saw, The Wife, and Lady Gaga, fresh face and newcomer, in her first nomination for A Star Is Born, Bradley Cooper’s critically acclaimed and commercially successful directing debut.

At the Golden Globes, Close won Best Actress for Drama, and at the recent Critics Choice, there was a tie between Close and Lady Gaga.

I think the winner will be Glenn Close.

Mahershala Ali, “Green Book”
Adam Driver, “BlacKkKlansman”
Sam Elliott, “A Star Is Born”
Richard E. Grant, “Can You Ever Forgive Me?”
