The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced its nominees for the 2020 Oscars.

“Joker,” from Warner Bros. Pictures  (T) - Get Report, earned 11 nominations, the most of any film.

Three movies were close behind with 10 nominations each: “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” “The Irishman,” and “1917.”

Tech giant Netflix (NFLX) - Get Report faired well, with over 20 nominations across all categories. “The Irishman” and “Marriage Story” were both nominated for Best Picture.

On Twitter, some complained that Greta Gerwig, the director of “Little Women,” was snubbed for not landing a nod for best director. Nominees for the category were all male.

For the second time, the Oscars is forgoing a host.

“Together with the Academy we have decided there will be no traditional host again this year, repeating what worked for us last year: huge entertainment value, big musical numbers, big comedy, and star power,” ABC President Karey Burke said at the Television Critics Association winter press tour.

The awards telecast is set to air on Feb. 9 on ABC.
