The other contenders includeA Star Is Born’ andVicewith eight each, followed by ‘Black Panther’ with seven.

Black Panther is the first superhero movie to be nominated for best picture.

Colman is among the British acting nominees, alongside her co-star ‘Rachel Weisz’ and ‘Christian Bale’ for Vice.

Colman’s strongest competition in the best actress category is likely to come from ‘Glenn Close’, who is odds-on favourite to win her first Academy Award for ‘The Wife’ after six previous nominations, according to bookmakers,

‘Yalitza Aparicio’ is nominated for her first screen role, as the Mexican maid in Roma. The film has also given Netflix its first ever best picture nomination.

The best actress category also includes ‘Melissa McCarthy’ for ‘Can You Ever Forgive Me?’ and Lady Gaga for A Star Is Born.

Gaga’s co-star Bradley Cooper is nominated in the best actor category, but the frontrunners for that statuette are two men who earned acclaim for portraying real-life public figures.

Rami Malek won rave reviews for playing Queen singer Freddie Mercury in ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, while Bale transformed into former US Vice-President Dick Cheney with the help of prosthetics in Vice.

Richard E Grant has received his first ever Oscar nomination, for best supporting actor for his role in the film Can You Ever Forgive Me?

The Withnail & I star was among the first 2019 nominees to be announced, alongside Mahershala Ali, Adam Driver, Sam Elliott and Sam Rockwell.
