Transcript for 'Roma,' 'The Favourite' score most Oscar nominations
The nominations for the 91st annual academy awards were announced moments ago. "Roma" and "The favourite" tied with ten and "Black panther" got seven. Wow. A lot of nominations. "Black panther" with seven nominations. Did you guys see that coming, that many? Not only that it's the first superhero movie ever to get a best picture nomination. So history being made for a movie that's made $700 million. Just in America. So for a smash hit movie to get this kind of acclaim, it's groundbreaking, really. It's a huge deal. But only 1.3 billion around the world so it's got a long way to go. To camp up with "Roma." Eight out of ten. There could have been ten that were nominated but eight. Why do you think that is. All depends on how the movies are ranked. It's usually eight or nine. Almost always we get to eight or nine. But striking to see so many audience movies, "Bohemian rhapsody" which did extremely well also getting a nomination and "A star is born" which has made over $200 million as well. So there's a lot of rooting interest I think for people to watch the show this year for S they've seen and liked. Who's hosting? We saw a pretty good audition tape a second ago? We really did. And Glenn close, nominated for "The wife." Best actress. Guys, if you have not seen this movie -- It is so good. You will be thinking about it and talking about it for days. It is fantastic. It is. So good. Don't talk about it too much because if you haven't read the novel that it's based on, there is wife." I went in blind and it was so powerful at the end. It kind of came and went from theaters and people forgot about it for awhile. I am so glad to see Glenn close getting the attention for this. This could be her year. I just happened to see it on a flight to L.A. I had no idea about the film and just like George I was like, well, let me see what this is about. And you're like whoa. It was turbocharged by her win at the golden globes and by that speech which really galvanized people and made people want to check this movie out. Lady gaga. She has a great chance in best song. You almost wonder in a weird way, the academy likes to spread the wealth a little bit sometimes so you wonder a little bit if everybody thinks that lady gaga might get an Oscar for best song how will that impact her chances in best actress? They deal the cards out kind of evenly sometimes but we'll see. How about best actor, "Vice" got a lot of nominations. Is Christian bale a lock? I think he is. Looking at all the guild awards so far and all of that, there's clearly a lot of enthusiasm for "Vice." I don't know that it's going to win any giant categories like director or picture though it is nominated in those and I think bale is the way they'll honor that movie. All right. Jess, thank you.
