Oscar nominations 2020: full list of Academy Awards nominees as Joker and The Irishman lead the running

The nominations for this year's Academy Awards have been announced, with super-villain origins story Joker picking up the most nods.

The film - which charts the transformation of a failed stand-up comedian into the iconic nemesis of Batman - picked up 11 nominations, including in the Best Film and Best Actor categories.

Other films to pick up an armful of nominations include Martin Scorsese's gangster epic The Irishman, Quentin Tarantino's revisionist Tinseltown love letter Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, both of which received 10 nominations.

Sam Mendes' one-shot war tale 1917 - which was written by Glasgow-born Krysty Wilson-Cairns - also received 10 nominations.

Taika Waititi's Hitler-centric comedy Jojo Rabbit and Bong Joon-ho's foreign-language Parasite - the first South Korean Best Picture nominee - both received six.

Despite picking up South Korea's first Best Picture nomination, Parasite was snubbed in the acting categories, as was acclaimed tragi-comedy The Farewell.

Taron Egerton received no Best Actor nomination for his role as Elton John in Rocketman, despite getting a BAFTA nomination and winning the Golden Globe just last weekend.

Greta Gerwig's interpretation of Little Women was also looked over, an unfortunately predictable snub in a year in which awards ceremonies are once again being criticised for a lack of diversity in their nominations.

When are the 2020 Oscars?

The 92nd Academy Awards will take place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles.

Despite more than a decade of the Awards being given out towards the end of February, this year's ceremony has been moved forward, and takes place on Sunday 9 February.

How can I watch the ceremony from the UK?

British film and TV fans might want to consider taking a day off work if they're to stay up and watch the show live.

The ceremony takes place on the evening of Sunday 9 February in America, meaning it will be the early hours of Monday morning for Brits tuning in.

At the time of writing, it's not yet been confirmed if any UK broadcaster will have the rights to transmit the show on this side of the pond.

But in previous years, Sky has aired the show live on Sky Cinema on the Sunday night and early Monday morning, with highlights of the ceremony shown at a much more palatable time of 9pm on the Monday.

Last year, ABC's Oscars All Access: Red Carpet Live was also streamed live exclusively on Twitter, and E! also hosted their own coverage of the Oscars red carpet via the E! UK Twitter page.
