BongHive rising, ‘Joker’ can’t be stopped, and women are snubbed (again) in the directing category

BongHive, rise! The 2020 Oscar nominations are here, and we officially live in a world where Korean writer-director Bong Joon-Ho’s Parasite is nominated for six Academy Awards. Sadly, it’s also a world in which Jennifer Lopez was snubbed for her role in Hustlers and we have to endure another painfully male Best Director category.
And while Bong’s Parasite may be an Academy darling scoring key nominations for Best Director and, most importantly, Best Original Screenplay it’s Todd Phillips controversial Joker that’s leading the pack this year with 11 nominations total, including one for actor and frontrunner Joaquin Phoenix. Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman and Sam Mendes’s war epic 1917 aren’t far behind with 10 nods apiece.
With all of that in mind, let’s take a look at the rest of the 2020 Oscar nominees:
