It's the Oscars!

The Academy unveiled its 2019 Oscar nominations with The Favourite and Roma leading with 10 nominations each! 

Don't miss the 91st Annual Academy Awards on Feb 25th (SGT)! 

Marvel's Black Panther sets a new record to be the first superhero flick to get nominated in the Best Picture category, earning as far as seven nods overall including Best Costume Design, Best Production Design, etc. Alfonso Cuaron’s black-and-white film, Roma and Yorgos Lanthimos’ The Favourite leads the 2019 Oscar nominations with 10 nods apiece.

Roma, a Spanish-language movie starring first-time actress Yalitza Aparicio (who is also nominated in the Best Actress category) is a milestone for Netflix as it marks the streaming company’s first-ever best picture Oscar nomination. The film is also nominated for Best Director (Cuaron), Best Supporting actress (Marina de Tavira), Best Original Screenplay, Best Film Editing, Best Cinematography, Best Foreign Language Film, Best Production Design, Best Sound Editing and Best Sound mixing.

The Favourite is up against Roma in many similar categories including Best Picture, Best Director (Lanthimos), Best Actress (Olivia Colman), Best Original Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Film Editing and Best Production Design. Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz are both nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category. 

Colman was crowned best actress in a musical/comedy at the recent Golden Globes for her role as Queen Anne in The Favourite.

Based on a true story of a world-renowned pianist Dr. Don Shirely (Mahershala Ali) and the unlikely friendship with Italian-American bouncer (Viggo Mortensen) hired to safely escort him around, Green Book scored a total of five nominations including Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, Best Actor (Mortensen), Best Supporting Actor (Ali) and Best Film Editing. 

Ali has already picked up a Golden Globe for the role and has won in the same category in 2017 for his portrayal of a soft-heard drug dealer in ‘Moonlight’.

Green Book opens InCinemas 24 January 2019.

Pop superstar Lady Gaga is the first person in the history of the Oscars to be nominated for Best Actress and Best Original Song in the same year for her dual roles in the movie A Star Is Born. The actress-singer who tied for best actress with Glenn Close at the Critics’ Choice Awards, will vie with Close, Aparicio, Colman and Melissa McCarthy (Can You Ever Forgive Me) for the honour of Best Actress at the 2019 Oscars. Her original song, Shallow, which she wrote and duets with star and director Bradley Cooper, has been nominated in the Best Original Song category. Let’s hope we’ll be able to watch her sing live at the awards ceremony! 

A Star Is Born is showing InCinemas

The Queen biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, starring Rami Malek as the late legendary Freddie Mercury, picked up a whopping five nominations - for Best Picture, Best Actor (Malek), Best Editing, Best Sound Editing, and Best Sound Mixing. The film scooped 2 Golden Globes earlier this month, one of which is the marquee prize of Best Motion Picture - Drama. Many have praised Malek for his performance and it feels quite a shoo-in for the 37-year-old actor to beat his fellow actors in the Best Actor category. 

Bohemian Rhapsody is showing InCinemas. A Sing-along version is also screening InCinemas.

Lebanon’s Capernaum has received its second Oscar nomination in the Best Foreign Language Film category in many years. Filmmaker Nadine Labaki’s heart-wrenching film is set in the world of Beirut's growing refugee crisis, which has forced many children onto the streets. Capernaum tells the story of Zain, a 12-year-old who takes his impoverished parents to court in order to stop them from having more children. 

Capernaum is opens InCinemas 25 January at GV Paya Lebar and The Projector

Another film shot in black-and-white that is making waves at the award season is Polish film Cold War, Pawel Pawlikowski’s jazz-infused romantic drama about the love story between a man and a woman who meet in the ruins of post-war Poland. The film has been honoured with three Oscar nominations, namely Best Director (Pawlikowski), Best Cinematography (Lukasz Zai) and Best Foreign Language Film. 

Cold War took the best director at the Cannes Film Festival and received multiple prizes at the European Film Awards, including Best European Film.

Cold War is set to open InCinemas in February!
