UPDATING Oscar Nominations:

• by Roger Friedman

The 2020 Oscar nominations are here. Snubs  include Jennifer Lopez for "Hustlers." Eddie Murphy for "Dolemite" and everything for that movie. But I'm really shocked that "1917" didn't get editing. This was the movie with the "one cut" and incredible editing by Lee Smith. What??? And no women editors, no nomination for Greta Gerwig. There was also nothing for "The Farewell"– no Awkwafina, or "Cats," of course. Robert De Niro was not nommed for "The Irishman." (See my next story.)

Other snubs: No Clint Eastwood, but Kathy Bates made it in from "Richard Jewell." Nothing for "Just Mercy." Almost nothing for African Americans except Cynthia Erivo as "Harriet."

In documentaries, "Maiden" was ignored. This was really a shame.
