"Joker" led the way among Academy Award nominees on Monday, nabbing 11 nods, including Best Picture.

The big picture: The awards ceremony — like last year's — is set to be a showdown between traditional Hollywood studios and new streaming giants. Netflix's "The Irishman" and "Marriage Story" both got a nomination for Best Picture and nabbed a number of top acting nominations as well.

  • Seven of the 20 acting nominations went to Netflix films — including three of the slots for Best Supporting Actor.

Of note: After 2016's #OscarsSoWhite controversy, the nominations for top categories still lack diversity — with only one acting nomination slot going to a black actor or actress (Cynthia Erivo for "Harriet").

  • The slate for directing is all men. Only five women have ever been nominated for the prize — with only one win.
