Nepal Ousted From The Oscar Race, Academy Unveils 2019 Academy Shortlists


The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences on Monday unveiled the shortlists for nine Oscar categories, which effectively pares down the list of awards hopefuls from which Academy members will chose nominees in each of the categories. It is the first time that the Academy has released all of its shortlists on the same day. And it gave some films a boost, while others — particularly in the documentary feature and foreign-language film categories — were left by the wayside.

As expected, Alfonso Cuaron’s Roma, Mexico’s submission for best foreign-language film, secured a spot in that category, where it will compete against such other films as Pawel Pawlikowski’s Cold War, the Polish entry.

The Oscar nominees will be unveiled Jan. 22, while the 91st Annual Academy Awards ceremony is set for Sunday, Feb. 24, and will air live on ABC.
