    Oscars 2019 have become one of the most-talked about ceremonies in recent years as the Academy, in an attempt to make the ceremony more audience-friendly, has possibly ended up making it a huge risk for the broadcasters. This year's frontrunners at the Oscars include Roma and The Favourite, both leading with 10 nominations, followed by A Star Is Born and Vice with 8 nominations each. Marvel's Black Panther has also received 7 nominations. Among the actors, Rami Malek, Christian Bale, Glenn Close, Mahershala Ali are among the favourites this year.
