The Academy Awards announced their nominations this morning and Indigenous New Zealand director Taika Waititi’s “Jojo Rabbit” made a splash with six nominations.

The dark comic book villain movie “Joker” led the nominations with 11 in total, while the films "The Irishman,” “1917,” and “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” garnered 10 each. “Little Women,” “Jojo Rabbit,” “Parasite” and “Marriage Story” each grabbed six. “Frozen 2” received one nomination for best original song.

Twitter was quick to respond to the nominations announcement for the 92nd Academy Awards which will be taking place in Los Angeles on February 9th on ABC. Within an hour of the announcements, Jojo Rabbit, #OscarNom, Antonio Banderas, who received a nomination for best actor in Pain and Glory, and Scarlett Johanssen, a first-time nominee were trending on social media.

In addition, “Dolemite is my Name” was also trending due to the Oscars nomination snub of Eddie Murphy. The actor did not receive a nomination. Nor did the film for the costume design. However, Dolemite was nominated for a Golden Globe. Two other actresses missing from the Oscars were Jennifer Lopez for “Hustlers” and Ana de Armas for “Knives Out.”
