The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has released the list of 2019 nominees for the 91st Annual Academy Awards. The Oscar nominations were announced Tuesday, Jan. 22, 2019, at the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater, with Kumail Nanjiani and Tracee Ellis Ross hosting.

The Favourite and Roma earned 10 nominations each. Meanwhile, Marvel’s Black Panther has made history, becoming the first comic book movie to earn a Best Picture nomination. The much-discussed blockbuster has also earned nominations for Best Costume Design, Production Design, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, Original Score and Original Song.

Elsewhere, A Star Is Born features prominently among the list of nominees. The Bradley Cooper-directed drama, which stars Lady Gaga, has earned eight nominations in total, including Best Picture, Actress in a Leading Role (Gaga) and Actor in a Leading Role (Cooper).

Gaga, 32, faces stiff competition in the Actress in a Leading Role category, where she has been nominated alongside Yalitza Aparicio, Glenn Close, Olivia Colman and Melissa McCarthy.

The acclaimed movie is also in contention for the Best Picture and Best Director prize, which is being contested by McKay, Spike Lee, Paweł Pawlikowski, Yorgos Lanthimos and Alfonso Cuaron.

Spike’s nod in the Best Picture category for BlacKkKlansman represents a career-first for the veteran filmmaker, whose previous hits include Do the Right Thing and She’s Gotta Have It.
