“The Favourite” and “Roma” led the 2019 Oscar nominations with 10 nods each, including Best Picture, on Tuesday morning.

“A Star Is Born” and “Vice” scored eight nominations each, while “Black Panther” earned seven. “BlacKkKlansman” received six nominations. “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Green Book” each scored five nominations.

The coveted Best Picture nominations went to “BlacKkKlansman,” “Black Panther,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “The Favourite,” “Green Book,” “Roma,” “A Star Is Born” and “Vice.”

“Black Panther” is the first comic book-based film to earn a Best Picture nomination. Another cool record: “Roma” has tied the record of 10 nominations held by “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” from 2000 for the most nominations received by a foreign language film, and it is also the fifth film to be nominated in both the Best Foreign Language Film and Best Picture categories.
