ROMA, director Alfonso Cuaron's gorgeous memory piece, made history this morning when it landed Netflix its first Best Picture Oscar nomination. The black-and-white autobiographical drama also secured nominations for Best Director, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress, Best Cinematography, Best Original Screenplay, Best Foreign Language Film, Best Production Design, Best Sound Editing and Best Sound Mixing. Overall, ROMA earned a total of 10 nominations, tying with The Favourite for the most nods.

Following the pre-dawn announcement, Hollywood was already buzzing about who was left out of the running in this year's race. For instance, the popular Mister Rogers documentary Won't You Be My Neighbor? wasn't included on the list for Best Documentary, Bradley Cooper (whose film A Star is Born garnered eight nominations) wasn't included on the list of Best Director nominees and the acclaimed films, Crazy Rich Asians, Eighth Grade and The Rider were total shutouts.
