Forget Christmas. It's the most wonderful time of the year: the Oscars are coming. And ahead of the ceremony on 9 February, the nominations have been announced by actors John Cho and Issa Rae.

Issa, in particular, made her feelings known following the announcement of the nominees for Best Director. 'Congratulations to those men', she said, acknowledging the lack of nominations for the female directors of Little Women, Hustlers, Booksmart and others.


The Oscars recognise the biggest film achievements of the year, and any actors who says they don't care about a nomination are lying. This year, Margot Robbie, Laura Dern, Brad Pitt, Saoirse Ronan, Charlize Theron, Renee Zellweger, Tom Hanks, Florence Pugh and Scarlett Johansson are among the nominees, and will surely be celebrating (and, of course, wondering what they're going to be wearing!)

Here are the nominations.
