Ten films were nominated for Best Picture today by the PGA making their Oscar chances a whole lot better.

BlacKkKlansman, Black Panther, Bohemian Rhapsody, Crazy Rich Asians, The Favourite, A Quiet Place, Roma, Vice, Green Book and the expected Oscar juggernaut A Star is Born. The nominations for Bohemian Rhapsody must be considered a surprise because the reviews were built around actor Rami Malek.

Major snubs include First Man, Can You Ever Forgive Me, and Mary Poppins Returns.

It certainly is good news for the spring horror blockbuster A Quiet Place, and could help the films Oscar chances.

The inclusion of Roma pretty much promises all such streaming films will now get a fair shot come awards time.

But man, to ignore First Man… ouch.
