Myriad factors are likely responsible for the Oscars' dwindling audience, but it's widely believed in industry circles that having more popular films in contention would help, providing casual viewers with a greater rooting interest that would theoretically boost tune-in. A Star Is Born, The Favourite, and Green Book also earned multiple nominations, as did TV shows like The Assassination of Gianni Versace, Sharp Objects, and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.

The film also landed nods for Best Original Score and Best Original Song, so despite actor and actress snubs for the film, nearly everything's coming up Wakanda.

All earned nods in other categories, too, including Rami Malek's prosthetic tooth-aided performance as Mercury and the leading turn by John David Washington (son of Denzel) in BlacKkKlansman.
