The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced the nominees for the 91st annual Academy Awards, a.k.a. the Oscars, on January 22.The awards show is searching for a new host after Kevin Hart stepped down — just two days after he was announced for the gig — amid controversy over homophobic jokes he’d made in the past.

The two films will go up against one another in the Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Screenplay categories.The Best Picture category has eight nominees for 2019. Bohemian Rhapsody and Green Book, two movies that have been the subject of controversy and were previously honored with Best Picture trophies at the Golden Globes, are both nominated, as is last year’s biggest Hollywood success story: Black PantherBlack Panther is now the first superhero movie in history to be nominated for Best Picture, a recognition that caps the film’s $1.3 billion worldwide box office haul.
