Joker was the big winner during Monday's Academy Award nominations, walking away as the most-nominated film with 11 nods--including Best Picture, Best Actor for Joaquin Phoenix, and Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay for Todd Phillips.

The Irishman, 1917 and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood all came in a close second with 10 nominations apiece. All of those are also up for Best Picture and Best Director, with The Irishman also earning acting nods for Al Pacino and Joe Pesci and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood doing the same for Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt.

This year's snubs include Jennifer Lopez, who was shockingly overlooked for her acclaimed role in Hustlers, plus Uncut Gems star Adam Sandler. Robert DeNiro was not nominated for Best Actor in The Irishman, even as Al Pacino and Joe Pesci picked up Best Supporting Actor nods. Ford v. Ferrari stars Christian Bale and Matt Damon were left out despite a Best Picture nod. And Noah Baumbach and girlfriend Greta Gerwig were both shut out for Best Director, although their respective films--Marriage Story and Little Women--earned nods for their screenplays, as well as multiple acting nods and a Best Picture nomination each.

Among this year's records and firsts, composer John Williams broke his own record when he scored a Best Original Score nod for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. It's his 52nd Oscar nomination, the most of all living nominees. 

The 92nd annual Academy Awards, which will go on without a host, will air live from Hollywood's Dolby Theatre on Sunday, February 9, on ABC.
