2020 Oscar nominations: Massachusetts handsomely represented

Massachusetts is well represented among the 2020 Oscar nominations, which were announced this morning.

“Little Women,” which was filmed in multiple locations throughout Massachusetts in 2018 and parts of 2019, earned a coveted Best Picture nomination and Best Actress nod for Saoirse Ronan (who plays Jo) and Best Supporting Actress for Florence Pugh (who plays Amy) in the retelling of the Louisa May Alcott novel. Director Greta Gerwig was snubbed, however.

“It was a great and rare opportunity to make a film where the story actually took place,” said “Little Women” producer Amy Pascal. “There is no place comparable to Concord and everything it meant to Louisa May Alcott and what the story is about.”

“Knives Out,” which was shot in Massachusetts in 2018, and which features Sudbury native Chris Evans, earned an Original Screenplay nomination.

New Hampshire native Adam Sandler, who many considered a strong contender for a Best Actor Oscar for his role in “Uncut Gems,“ failed to land a nod. The film came up empty overall.

Nominees with New England roots were plentiful in the technical categories.

Kevin Feige, the powerful Hollywood producer who is in charge of the Marvel Universe, grew up in Boston. His “Avengers: Endgame“ got an Oscar nomination for Visual Effects.

“The Lighthouse,” which was filmed in Maine, earned a Cinematography nomination.

Scott Silver, who hails from Worcester and who won the Best Original Screenplay Oscar in 2011 for “The Fighter“ (filmed in Boston), grabbed an Adapted Screenplay nomination for “Joker.“

Three-time Oscar winning cinematographer Robert Richardson, who was raised in Hyannis, getting his 10th Oscar nomination for Cinematography for “Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood.“

Joker” has more nominations than any other film this year — 11 — including Picture, Director, Actor, and Adapted Screenplay.
“The Irishman,” “1917,” and “Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood” each took 10 nominations, all taking Best Picture and Director nominations.

Netflix earned two Best Picture nominations. In addition to “The Irishman,” their “Marriage Story” received a spot on the list.

Notable snubs included Jennifer Lopez for Best Supporting Actress for her role in “Hustlers” and Robert DeNiro for Best Actor in “The Irishman.”
