• Oscar nominees: Melissa McCarthy nominated for Best Actress, Worst Actress in the same year

    Melissa McCarthy is nominated for an Oscar. Again. The Oscar nominees for the 91st Academy Awards were announced Tuesday morning by funny people Kumail Nanjiani and Tracee Ellis Ross.

    McCarthy, who is also nominated for a Razzie Award this year for the Happytime Murders, will hope to take home the Oscar for Best Actress. The actress took a dramatic turn portraying real-life fraudster Lee Israel in Can You Ever Forgive Me? She was first nominated for Best Supporting Actress in 2012 for her show-stealing performance in Bridesmaids. The biopic was nominated for a total of three Academy Awards: Best Supporting Actor (Richard E. Grant) and Best Adapted Screenplay (Nicole Holofcener and Jeff Whitty).

    Adam McKay does well post-College Humor departure

    Adam McKayCollege Humor’s Adam McKay earned several nods from the Academy. His Dick Cheney biopic Vice is nominated for Best Picture, which he served as writer, director, and producer. McKay is also in the running for Best Director and Best Original Screenplay. The dramedy racked up eight nominations altogether: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Actor (Christian Bale), Best Supporting Actress (Amy Adams), Best Supporting Actor (Sam Rockwell), Best Makeup & Hairstyling, and Best Film Editing. McKay was previously nominated in 2016 for The Big Short.

    Comedy sneaks into Oscars race

    The Ballad of Buster ScruggsNetflix shocked everyone with a surprising dominance at the Oscars. The streaming giant has become a formidable opponent in television at the Emmy and Golden Globes. This year Netflix boasts 15 nominations with their Alfonso Cuaron-directed Roma and Coen brothers comedy The Ballad of Buster Scruggs—which somehow qualified despite being episodic. The quirky comedy duo is nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Costume Design, and Best Original Song.

    Fellow quirky comedy filmmaker Wes Anderson returns to the Academy Awards red carpet with a Best Animated Feature nomination for his stop-motion flick Isle of Dogs. Composer Alexandre Desplat is nominated for Best Original Score.

    Comedy darling Emma Stone popped up with a Best Supporting Actress nod for her role in The Favourite, a period piece dramedy about Queen Anne.

    Family-friendly comedy Marry Poppins Returns snagged four nominations in more technical categories. The Disney flick, starring Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda, could boast Oscar statuettes for Best Costume Design, Best Original Song, Best Original Score, and Best Production Design.

    The Not-Hosted-By-Kevin-Hart Academy Awards will be presented hostless on February 24 on ABC.
