The historic firsts of the 2019 Oscar nominations

Cuaron tied the record for most decorated Oscar nominee ever for one film with four nods for his black-and-white, memory-drenched masterpiece.

On Tuesday, Spanish-language drama "Roma" from director Alfonso Cuarón also became the first film distributed by a streaming service to earn a spot in the coveted best picture category. It took home Best Picture, Best Director, Best Foreign Language Film and Best Cinematography at the Critics' Choice Awards. However, it wasn't included in the Best Picture category.

Especially after facing racist attacks online, Aparicio knew that landing an Oscar nomination would have a tremendous impact on her community.

Thankfully, a friend woke up her up early this morning armed with a laptop to stream the nominations while they were announced live and a camera to catch Yalitza's reaction. They are both nominated for best director. In the 10 years since the Oscars expanded its best-picture ballot, the PGA victor has gone on to win best picture eight times. If he does get an acting nomination, he would most likely be pitted against Bohemian Rhapsody's Rami Malek, who won the Golden Globe for his roll as Freddie Mercury. She wasn't as prominent or prevalent on the Oscar campaign, so you actually had to watch Roma to see how great she is, and how both performances feed off each other. The Ballad of Buster Scruggs scored three surprise nominations, so Roma is not a one-off, and Netflix racked up thirteen total nominations, including their first Best Picture nod.

Sometimes, a little money - well, maybe a lot of money - can go a long way.Netflix has spent billions of dollars acquiring and producing content, and hundreds of millions more promoting those movies and series. The Academy went in on Netflix this year.

In Best Supporting Actor, the nominees are Mahershala Ali (Green Book), Adam Driver (BlacKkKlansman), Sam Elliott (A Star Is Born), Richard E. Grant (Can You Ever Forgive Me?), and Sam Rockwell (Vice), while the nominees for Best Supporting Actress are Amy Adams (Vice), Regina King (If Beale Street Could Talk), Emma Stone (The Favourite), Marina De Tavira (Roma), and Rachel Weisz (The Favourite).

There are always surprises in the Oscars' original song and original score categories, and this year is no exception: There were no nods for Dolly Parton or "First Man". She remains the only black woman to receive the honor.

After directing for decades, Spike Lee received his first best director nomination.

The season's steadiest contender - Cooper's "A Star Is Born" - looked potentially unbeatable until it got beat.
