The nominations for the 2020 Oscars have been revealed, and while there aren't any huge surprises, movies like 1917, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, The Irishman and Joker have got plenty of attention from the Academy. 

Like the BAFTAs, expect the Oscars to get some criticism for the male-dominated directing category, which snubs Little Women's Greta Gerwig. That movie is nominated for best picture, at least, with Saoirse Ronan nominated for leading actress, and Florence Pugh nominated for supporting actress. 

Taron Egerton, who got an acting nomination for Rocketman at the BAFTAs, loses out here. The Golden Globes 2020 winners are usually a good indicator of who'll win big at the Oscars, though you never know when you might see some surprises.
