Joker was the big winner at Monday's Academy Award nominations, walking away as the most-nominated film with 11 nods--including Best Picture, Best Actor for Joaquin Phoenix, and Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay for Todd Phillips.

The Irishman, 1917 and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood tied for second with 10 nominations apiece. All of those are also up for Best Picture and Best Director, with The Irishman also earning acting nods for Al Pacino and Joe Pesci and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood doing the same for Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt.

This year's jaw-dropping snubs include Jennifer Lopez, overlooked for her acclaimed role in Hustlers, plus Uncut Gems star Adam Sandler, Dolemite Is My Name's Eddie Murphy and Us star Lupita Nyong'o. Robert DeNiro was not nominated for Best Actor in The Irishman, even as Al Pacino and Joe Pesci picked up Best Supporting Actor nods. Ford v. Ferrari stars Christian Bale and Matt Damon were left out despite a Best Picture nod. And Noah Baumbach and girlfriend Greta Gerwig were both shut out for Best Director, although their respective films--Marriage Story and Little Women--earned nods for their screenplays, as well as multiple acting nods and a Best Picture nomination each. Perhaps most shocking, Frozen 2 is not up for Best Animated Feature.

Among this year's surprises, records and firsts, composer John Williams broke his own record when he scored a Best Original Score nod for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. It's his 52nd Oscar nomination, the most of all living nominees. Meanwhile, Scarlett Johansson scored her first two Oscar nominations ever: for Best Actress in Marriage Story and Best Supporting Actress in Jojo Rabbit. And there were unexpected nominations for Antonio Banderas in Pain and Glory, Jonathan Pryce in The Two Popes and Florence Pugh in Little Women.
