Fox dominates 2019 Oscar nominations with 20 total for ‘The Favourite,’ ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ and more: See studio-by-studio breakdown

Fox’s two film studios are “the champions,” to quote the infamous Queen song, of the 2019 Oscar nominations as Fox Searchlight and 20th Century Fox have a combined 20 nominations this year. Indie studio Fox Searchlight leads with 10 bids for royalty dramedy “The Favourite,” three for biopic “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” and two for animated feature “Isle of Dogs,” while big budget brother 20th Century Fox earns five noms for the making-of-Queen film “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Last year Fox Searchlight won Best Picture and Best Director for Guillermo del Toro‘s “The Shape of Water,” so will their Oscar domination continue this year? See the studio-by-studio breakdown below.

Walt Disney has a staggering 17 nominations across eight films: seven for “Black Panther,” four for “Mary Poppins Returns,” and one apiece for “Avengers: Infinity War,” “Christopher Robin,” “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” “Incredibles 2,” “Ralph Breaks the Internet” and short film “Bao.” Co-producer Marvel Studios shares in the love for the two comic book films, “Black Panther” and “Avengers: Infinity War.” (Editor’s note: Disney’s total has been updated with all animated films.)

Next up with 14 total bids is streaming giant Netflix, which made a name for itself this year with 10 nominations for Alfonso Cuaron‘s “Roma,” three for the Coen Brothers‘ “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs” and one for documentary short subject “End Game.” Netflix’s previous claim to fame at the Academy Awards was winning Best Documentary Feature for “Icarus,” but it’s poised to take home even more trophies this year if the nominations totals are any indication.
