Academy Releases Its 2019 Oscar Shortlists

For the first time in its history, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has released all its Oscar shortlists on the same day. From here, Academy members will widdle the list down and the official nominees will be released on Tuesday, January 22nd. Being on the shortlist of course boosts popularity for certain films while questions will arise as to why other films didn’t make the cut.

Alfonso Cuaron’s critically-acclaimed Roma, available on Netflix, has made the shortlist for Best Foreign-language Film while Mary Poppins Returns made the first cut in the music and visual effects categories. The Hollywood Reporter reported nine of the categories yesterday.
