This year’s Oscar nominees have been unveiled and there was plenty of good news for The Banshees of InisherinEverything Everywhere All at Once and All Quiet on the Western FrontDaniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan’s leftfield sci-fi collected 11 nominations, while Martin McDonagh’s tragicomic fable of a crumbling friendship in 1920s Ireland picked up nine.

Netflix’s Great War epic All Quiet on the Western Front, the rolling stone of this year’s awards season, also proved a big hit with Academy voters across the board. Among its nine nominations were a Best Picture nod, multiple nominations in the technical categories and a Best International Feature nod, where it will surely be the hot favourite to become Germany’s first winner since 2006’s ​​The Lives of Others.

There were a few big surprises, too: Ruben Östlund’s Palme d’Or winning Triangle of Sadness picked up unexpected Best Picture and Best Director nominations, and there was a Best Actress nomination for Andrea Riseborough for the little-seen alcoholism drama To Leslie. The otherwise overlooked Women Talking will be vying against other Best Picture candidates like The Fabelmans and Everything Everywhere All at Once on March 13.

Perhaps surprisingly, there were snubs for two cinema-oriented films. Both Damien Chazelle’s extravagant Hollywood epic Babylon and Sam Mendes’s ode to the Odeon, Empire of Light, were shut out in all the major categories. The Whale earned Brendan Fraser a widely-tipped Best Actor nomination but didn’t land a Best Picture nod.
