Winners: Roma! Black Panther! Foreign films! Losers: A Star Is Born! Emily Blunt! Mister Rogers!

Roma and The Favourite are at the top of the heap, with 10 nominations each; Vice and A Star Is Born are in second place with eight apiece. Black Panther, the first superhero movie ever nominated for Best Picture, is in third with seven.
