"Joker," the controversial drama about the mentally ill Batman villain that sparked backlash with its realistic depictions of extreme violence, triumphed at the 92nd annual Academy Awards nominations on Monday morning, earning 11 nods, the most of any film.

Three films were close behind with 10 nominations: "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood," Quentin Tarantino's fictional ode to 1960s Hollywood; "The Irishman," Martin Scorsese's mob drama starring Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci that clocks in at three and a half hours; and "1917," the World War I epic that centers on two British soldiers on a dangerous trip to deliver a critical message that could save 1,600 troops.

All four of those movies also earned best picture nominations. Rounding out the prestigious category is "Little Women," Greta Gerwig's version of Louisa May Alcott's tale of four sisters growing up in Massachusetts during the Civil War; "Marriage Story," which centers on an excruciating divorce and custody battle; "Parasite," the South Korean psychological thriller-slash-dark comedy; "Jojo Rabbit," about a young German boy who counts Hitler as an imaginary friend; and "Ford v Ferrari," based on the true story of Ford's goal to make a faster car than the Ferrari.

For the second year in a row, there were no women nominated in the best director category: Nominees included Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino, Bong Joon-ho, Sam Mendes and Todd Phillips, with the notable snub of Gerwig.

Once again, the Oscars ceremony will be host-free - after the debacle over Kevin Hart's tweets in 2019, the show's producers aren't taking any chances. "There was a lot of conversation about which way to go and there may be a day when we decide to have a host again, but the focus has been on the most entertaining show and not on the host," ABC entertainment president Karey Burke told reporters last week.

The nominations were announced Monday morning, hosted by actress Issa Rae and John Cho. The Academy Awards air Sunday, Feb. 9 - with no host - on ABC.
