Black Panther became the first superhero movie to be nominated for best picture Tuesday, although The Favourite became a favorite, earning 10 nominations to tie with Roma as the leader in the race for best movie.

Elsewhere. local guys Bradley Cooper and Adam McKay did well — helming movies that earned eight nominations apiece.

Notably, Cooper was shut out for best director for his remake of the oft-told Hollywood tale A Star Is Born but was nominated for best actor, best adapted screenplay, and best picture (as coproducer, Cooper is a co-nominee). Jenkintown native Cooper has in previous years picked up four nominations — three for acting (Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle, American Sniper) and one as producer of American Sniper.

I’m not as shocked as everyone else that Cooper did not receive a nomination for directing. It was a tough category. But this does not bode well for A Star Is Born’s chance to pick up the best-picture statuette. Historically, it’s tough, but not impossible, for a movie to win best picture if its director is not nominated. But the movie was still among the leaders, receiving eight nominations.

While Cooper lost out on best director, Lady Gaga was nominated for best actress, Sam Elliott for supporting actor, and the ubiquitous “Shallow” for original song. It also was nominated for best cinematography and sound mixing.

Malvern’s McKay saw his movie Vice nominated for best picture (McKay is coproducer), and the former Temple student picked up nominations for best director and best original screenplay. Christian Bale got a nod for best actor for his portrayal of Dick Cheney, Amy Adams for supporting actress as Lynn Cheney (this makes her sixth Oscar nomination without a win), and Sam Rockwell for supporting actor as George W. Bush. Vice also was nominated for best makeup.

Though Cooper was shut out in the best-director category, he was in good company. Also not nominated — Barry Jenkins of If Beale Street Could Talk, and Ryan Coogler of Black Panther (although Black Panther picked up seven other nominations, including costume design, production design, sound editing, sound mixing, original score, and original song), and Peter Farrelly of Green Book. Pawel Pawlikowski was nominated for best director, though his movie did not snag a best-picture nomination for his Cold War, which is nominated as best foreign-language film and for best cinematography. Cooper has been nominated by the Director’s Guild of America for best director, but so has Farrelly, and neither picked up an Oscar nod.

Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman did well — earning nominations for best picture, best director, and best adapted screenplay for Lee, and a mildly surprising nomination for Adam Driver for best supporting actor. Believe it or not, this is Lee’s first nomination as a director (he received an honorary Oscar in 2015). On a day when Black Panther did so well, you might have looked for Michael B. Jordan to be nominated here instead. BlacKkKlansman’s star, John David Washington, did not receive a best-actor nod either, despite being nominated for a Golden Globe.

Beale Street’s Jenkins picked up an adapted-screenplay nod, and Regina King was nominated for best supporting actress.

Penn grad Morgan Neville was surprisingly shut out in the best-documentary category for his Mister Rogers opus Won’t You Be My Neighbor? and Upper Dublin’s Josh Singer failed to earn a nod for best adapted screenplay for First Man.

The broad-based support for Roma included a supporting-actress nomination for Marina de Tavira, a nod that might have come at the expense of Michelle Yeoh of Crazy Rich Asians, the groundbreaking box-office hit that did not show up at all on the Oscar radar.

Also nearly shut out: A Quiet Place, the horror hit about aliens that kill people who make noise. The movie earned an ironic nomination for best sound editing. Nothing for star Emily Blunt, who was also ignored for her role in Mary Poppins Returns, a movie that earned nominations for song, score, and costume.

Roma represents the first best-picture nomination for Netflix, the streaming service that sometimes distributes its movies in theaters but does not report box-office revenue. That makes Roma the first best-picture nominee with undisclosed theatrical revenue. If Academy voters have overcome their bias against streaming services like Netflix (Hulu received its first-ever nomination for the documentary Minding the Gap), Roma could be in a position to become the first foreign-language movie to win best picture. (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon in 2000 also earned 10 nominations, but did not win). It would also be the first black-and-white movie since The Artist in 2012 to win.

In other firsts: Roma producer Gabriela Rodriguez is now the first Latina to receive a best-picture nomination.

The Academy Awards air Sunday, Feb. 24, at 8 p.m. on ABC. No word yet on who is hosting, but it definitely won’t be Kevin Hart.
