This year’s Oscar awards could make history for the first time after a film from streaming service Netflix has earned a best picture nomination.
Roma leads the nominations together with The Favourite each have 10 a piece.
Roma‘s best picture nomination marks the first time a Netflix title has been shortlisted for the top prize of Best Picture.
Black Panther also marks the first time a superhero film has earned a spot in that category too. It’s production designer Hannah Beachler became the first black production designer to score a nod too.
Critics have however lamented that all of the directing, cinematography, editing and original score nominees were men with no women gaining any nominations in these categories.
