Here’s everything that makes Oscars 2019 noteworthy!

Undisputedly, the highly anticipated awards of the world, Oscars are just around the corner. All the nominations have been officially announced Tuesday morning by the gorgeous Tracee Ellis Ross and the dapper, Kumail Nanjiani.

The comedy-drama flick, “The Favourite” and Alfonso Cuaron’s “Roma” have managed to cap the nominations of the 91st Academy Awards nominations with 10 nominations in variable categories each. Both flicks have been selected to run for best picture along with super-flamboyant movies like “A Star is Born,” “Green Book,” Vice,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “BlackkKlansman,” and “Black Panther.”

The acclaimed, Black Panther has already been crowned as the first ever comic book film to garner a nomination for best picture. It has also accumulated nominations for best original song, original score, sound mixing, sound editing, production design, and costume design.

Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga’s renown musical romantic movie, “A Star is Born” has received as many as eight nominations, with “Black Panther” and “Mary Poppins” grasping a lead in musical nominations.

Notwithstanding a plethora of ongoing campaigns revolving around women empowerment and the war undermining wage gap between genders, to our surprise, the prestigious Oscars have got no female directors nominated.
