The Oscar nominations this year are making headlines for both good and bad things. Let’s focus on the good…

Steven Spielberg is the only director ever nominated in SIX DIFFERENT DECADES… he probably is one of the most well-know directors between his work with Jaws, Indiana Jones, E.T, Jurassic Park, Saving Private Ryan and West Side Story just to name a few.

John Willaims got his 53rd nomination for his score in “The Fabelmans,” which Spielberg directed. John has the most Oscar nominations for anyone alive, but Walt Disney has the most in history with 59.

Angela Bassett got an Oscar nomination for her role in “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” making her the first actor nominated for a role in a Marvel movie- WHAT?!?!?!

There are a lot of other things making headlines like the fact that half of these movies we haven’t heard of but in case you are excited for them the 95th Oscars will air March 12th hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.
