We’ve finally arrived at the day Lady Gaga has been waiting for for a long time: Academy Award® nomination day. Early this morning, Kumail Nanjiani and Tracee Ellis Ross revealed the movies, actors, actresses, directors, songwriters and others who are up for the golden statue the evening of February 24 on ABC. And Gaga can breathe a sigh of relief, because she was indeed nominated for Leading Actress and Original Song for A Star is Born. The awards show itself is still without a host, and I’m beginning to wonder if they might just try running it without one. That idea would get my vote, as long as they give the various presenters less corny lines!

As always, since the nominations come after a slew of industry awards have already been doled out, there were a lot of expected films and names in each category. But there were also some surprises. A big one was Bradley Cooper being shut out of the Director category for A Star is Born, despite the romantic drama earning nods for Best Picture, Leading Actress, Leading Actor, Actor in a Supporting Role, Adapted Screenplay and Original Song.

So instead of it being A Star is Born leading the pack as many thought it would, the goofy dark comedy The Favourite and the black-and-white drama Roma are the front-runners with 10 nominations each. Other surprises Roma threw our way included both first-time actress Yalitza Aparicio and accomplished stage actress Marina de Tavira earning nods for Leading Actress and Actress in a Supporting Role, respectively. I had been pulling for Nicole Kidman to earn the fifth Leading Actress spot for her amazing turn in the gritty crime drama Destroyer, but it was not meant to be.

There were some exciting firsts, too: Black Panther became the first superhero movie to ever be nominated in the Best Picture category. And The Favourite is the first film to have a trio of actresses all nominated (Olivia Colman for Leading Actress, and both Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz for Actress in a Supporting Role). This is also the first year Spike Lee has ever been nominated in the Director category, believe it or not. And while Netflix has earned Oscar nominations in previous years, this was the first time it’s had a film (Roma) in the Best Picture category.

Here are the nominations for the major categories, and you can find the full list on Oscars.com.
