"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.

When MLB teams arrived at the ballpark this weekend for the first summer workouts of 2020, the comforting sounds of baseball brought smiles to players' faces.

Between the lines: Even the loudest crack of the bat couldn't mask the eerie silence or distract from the ever-present coronavirus threat.

239 scientists call on WHO to recognize coronavirus as airborne

A group of 239 scientists in 32 countries is calling for the World Health Organization to revise its recommendations to account for airborne transmission as a significant factor in how the coronavirus spreads, the New York Times reports.

The big picture: The WHO has said the virus mainly spreads via large respiratory droplets that fall to the ground once they've been discharged in coughs and sneezes. But the scientists say evidence shows the virus can spread from smaller particles that linger in air indoors.
