This year’s Oscar nominees were revealed earlier today, and Todd Phillips’ smash-hit Joker leads the way with an astounding 11 nominations including Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Director.

Hot on its heels is Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, Sam Mendes’ 1917 and Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, each with 10 nominations.

Bong Joon-Ho’s incredible film Parasite broke into the Best Picture category, and received a total of six nominations, a rarity for a foreign film.
