Tracee Ellis Ross and Kumail Nanjiani  announced the nominations for the 91st Academy Awards this morning, and Netflix's Roma and The Favourite head up the pack of nominees with 10 nods each.

The Lady Gaga/Bradley Cooper tuner A Star is Born snagged 8 nominations and Black Panther received 7 nods.

Gaga was nominated for Best Original Song and Best Actress. Bradley Cooper was acknowledged with a Best Actor nod but snubbed in the Best Director category.

Bohemian Rhapsody got Academy love for Best Picture, and Rami Malek was nominated for Best Actor for his portrayal of Queen lead singer, Freddie Mercury.

Can You Ever Forgive Me?, the biopic of lesbian biographer Lee Israel, played in the film by Melissa McCarthy, got 3 nominations.

McCarthy received a Best Actress nod, Richard E. Grant scored a nomination for Supporting Actor, and the film’s third nod was for Adapted Screenplay.

The Favourite is the big winner for LGBT-themed films scoring the most nominations, with 10 in total. All three female leads – Olivia Coleman, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz – all received nominations.

Other LGBT-related nominations include Mahershala Ali Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of the openly gay pianist Dr. Don Shirley in Green Book.

Troye Sivan will have to be happy with his Golden Globe nod for his song “Revelation” from Boy Erased, as he was left out of the Best Original Song category. Look for Gaga’s “Shallow” to be the front runner in this category.
