February may be a short month, but it brings with it some of the best moments in celebrity fashion and entertainment of the entire year, including the Super Bowl, New York Fashion Week, and of course — the Oscars. This year, the 92nd Academy Awards ceremony takes place Sunday, Feb. 9 at 8 p.m. EST.

Before you fill out your official 2020 Oscars Ballot, it’s important to know that it will be missing a few people (and films) you might think deserved to make the cut. One to note? The Best Director category again closed out a woman nominee which, yes, means directorial favorite Greta Gerwig was snubbed — again. Also: J.Lo.

On this year’s nominee list you'll find Joaquin Phoenix, up for Best Actor for his role in the controversial dark thriller film, Joker. There's alsoScarlett Johansson, who could not only take home her first Oscar, but win in two different categories — Best Actress for Marriage Story and Best Supporting Actress for Jojo Rabbit.

In terms of films, top contenders at this year's Oscars include Joker, which with 11 nominations, leads the pack this year. In addition to Phoenix’s Best Actor nod, the film also received nominations in the Best Picture, Best Cinematography, and Best Makeup & Hairstyling categories. Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood, The Irishman, and 1917 are close behind with 10 nominations each, including Best Picture and Best Director. Marriage Story, Parasite, and Jojo Rabbit also all scored multiple nominations.
