Los Angeles, CA (January 22, 2019)—Roma and The Favourite came out on top when the 91st Academy Awards nominations were announced this morning, with 10 each, while just six films got the nod for sound mixing and sound editing.
A Star Is Born, Bradley Cooper’s directorial debut, starring himself and Lady Gaga, picked up a total of eight nominations, though not one for Cooper’s directing. Vice was also recognized with eight nominations.
Black Panther made history by becoming the first superhero to be nominated for best picture. The box-office smash, which has taken in more than $1.3 billion globally, also put the lie to the industry myth that films featuring predominantly black casts are financially risky.
As has happened in the past, the academy nominated virtually identical lists of films in the sound mixing and sound editing categories.
The 91st Academy Awards ceremony will be televised by ABC from the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday, February 24.
The sound nominations are:
Benjamin A. Burtt and Steve Boeddeker
John Warhurst and Nina Hartstone
Ai-Ling Lee and Mildred Iatrou Morgan
