Oscar nominations for this year’s 94th Academy Awards have been unveiled today ahead of the ceremony which will take place in March.

Netflix’s The Power of the Dog is leading the way with 12 Oscar nominations, including Actor in a Leading Role for Benedict Cumberbatch, Best Picture and Directing for Jane Campion, as well as supporting nominations for Jesse Plemons, Kirsten Dunst and Kodi Smit-McPhee.

Denis Villeneuve’s adaptation of sci-fi epic Dune followed closely with 10 nominations including Best Picture, Writing (Adapted Screenplay) and Film Editing.

Belfast and West Side Story each have seven Oscar nominations each.

Olivia Colman, Benedict Cumberbatch and Andrew Garfield are among the British acting nominees in the leading categories while Dame Judi Dench and Ciarán Hinds are recognised in the supporting categories.

This year's nominees were announced today (February 8) by Leslie Jordan and Tracee Ellis Ross in a live stream from Los Angeles.

The Oscars will take place this year on Sunday, March 27 where, for the first time since 2018, the ceremony will have a host - but it has not yet been revealed by the Academy who this will be.
