The nominations for the 92nd Academy Awards were announced this morning. It's already in the history books as the first South Korean film to be nominated for either best picture or best global film.
Scarlett Johansson is nominated in two acting categories, for best actress in "Marriage Story" and best supporting actress in "Jojo Rabbit". Both are up for best actor, Banderas for "Pain and Glory" and Pryce for "The Two Popes".
In fact, the announcement was dominated by four films directed by and largely about white men, with Joker, The Irishman, Once Upon a Time.In Hollywood and 1917 each getting nominations in the double digits for a count that added up to a whopping 41 nominations.
"Parasite", from South Korea, is the sixth film to be nominated for best worldwide film - before this year known as best foreign language film - and for best picture in the same year.
The figure includes movie producers and technical categories such as best musical score, where Icelandic maestro Hildur Gudnadottir became the ninth woman nominated.
