Roma from Alfonso Cuaron is a black and white ode to his childhood in 1970s Mexico City

Having widely seen films in the running could help boost ratings for the Oscars telecast.

Spike Lee is finally getting some love at the Oscars, an honour Thor Diakow from Breakfast Television says is much deserved.

Only one woman has ever won Best Director at the Oscars: Kathryn Bigelow, for 2009's "The Hurt Locker", which also won Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay. "He'd be, certainly, celebrating with some big numbers".

Both films are up for best director and best picture, a first for streaming giant Netflix for Roma.

We've been paying close attention to the Best Original Score awards, as plenty of the heavyweights of '90s alt-rock have been making big moves this year.

Staying with the Best Documentary category, Three Identical Strangers, the project directed by Tim Wardle which explores the remarkable story of triplets who became separated at birth but reunited years later, also misses out.

Denzel Washington's son John David Washington, 34, played Stallworth in the film, and Adam Driver, 35, played the white officer who posed as him in public. Instead the nominees were "Free Solo", "Hale County This Morning, This Evening", "Minding the Gap", "Of Fathers and Sons" and the Ruth Bader Ginsberg portrait "RBG". Should this groundbreaking nomination have been given to an earlier film?
