Nominations for the Oscars - the film industry’s most prestigious awards - have been announced ahead of the February ceremony.
This year’s big hitters, like The Irishman, Once Upon a Time...in Hollywood, Joker, Little Women, and Marriage Story, have all secured a raft of nominations in various categories, but there were still some surprises.
The critically acclaimed South Korean film Parasite was nominated in multiple categories - a rare feat for a foreign language film.
Parasite’s director, Bong Joon Ho, was nominated for the screenplay and the direction, and the film itself was nominated for both best international feature, and best picture.
Scarlett Johansson was rewarded for her performances in Jojo Rabbit and Marriage Story with best supporting actress, and best supporting actress nominations for each respectively.
But the nominations have not been without controversy, and this year’s awards have faced repeated criticism for a perceived failure to recognise black and minority ethnic artists and filmmakers.
The trending #OscarsSoWhite hashtag has highlighted many people’s frustrations with the awards, as well as the expectation that white artists will dominate the nominations again this year.

There is also widespread frustration with the number of women nominated for traditionally male-dominated industry roles, like directing.
Presenter Issa Rae emphasised many people’s dissatisfaction when she said, pointedly, “congratulations to all those men”, after reading out the names of the best director nominees.
Here are all of the nominations for some of the most sought-after awards categories.
