The 2019 Oscars have finally arrived. Though the road to this point has been chaotic, the show must go on; the best films, performances, directing, cinematography, editing, and everything else having to do with moviemaking over the past year will be honored at the 91st annual Academy Awards on Sunday night.

The two most-nominated films are Roma, Alfonso Cuaròn’s moving, black-and-white tribute to the woman who helped raise him, and the wickedly divine The Favourite. Each film has 10 total nominations, and both are up for Best Picture.

The Best Picture category has eight nominees in 2019. In addition to Roma and The Favourite, Bohemian Rhapsody and Green Book — two Golden Globe-winning films that have frequently been the subject of controversy and debate — are both nominated.

So is last year’s biggest Hollywood success story: Black Panther. The acclaimed Marvel film is the first superhero movie in history to be nominated for Best Picture, as well as the third highest-earning movie of all time in the US. (All together, the 2019 Best Picture nominees boast one of the biggest combined box office tallies in cinematic history.)

The rest of the 2019 Best Picture nominees are the Lady Gaga-driven A Star Is Born, Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman, and Adam McKay’s Dick Cheney biopic Vice.

The Oscars will take place on Sunday, February 24 and air live on ABC at 8 pm Eastern/5 pm Pacific.
