The 2020 Oscar Nominations Are Here

Oscars

The Oscars are my Christmas so I guess the Oscar Nomination Day is kinda like when you take a look at your Christmas tree and see all the presents underneath - most of them are great! Some of them are coal (Joker)! There were some pleasant surprises, like Scarlett Johansson being nominated for both Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress, Florence Pugh's nomination for Little Women, and the amount of nominations for foreign films like Parasite. There were some major disappointments though, mainly the lack of nominations for female directors (again).
