It's about that time. With the big night set to take place on Sunday, February 9th, the 2020 Academy Award Nominations have arrived in full. For anybody keeping track, you'll likely find little in the way of surprise, with many similarities often seen between the Golden Globes and the Critics Choice Awards. Still, there's always excitement in the speculation process, even if the surprises are few and far between.

While genre fans might be sent away licking their wounds (especially fans of MIDSOMMAR and THE LIGHTHOUSE), the list is stacked with strong contenders all the same. Scarlett Johannessen laid down a massive power move with two Best Actress nominations, while favorite Joaquin Phoenix seems destined to lock horns with A Marriage Story's Adam Driver. The race for Best Picture seems a little more wide open, though a gambler might be wise to lay a few dollars on Sam Mendes' 1917.
