Oscars: Alfonso Cuaron Ties Record With 4 Nominations for 'Roma'
Previously, the Coen brothers and Warren Beatty (twice) had both been nominated four times for the same film.
With his nominations for the 2019 Oscars, Alfonso Cuaron has tied the record for the most personal nominations for one film.
In addition to being nominated for best director for Roma, he is also up for original screenplay, cinematography and best picture as a producer.
He was also eligible for best editing, though did not receive a nomination.
Roma also earned nods in the production design, sound editing and best foreign-language film categories, though the final category honors the country and not the director.
Marina de Tavira is nominated in the best actress in a supporting role category, while Yalitza Aparicio is up for best actress.
Cuaron tied the previous records of Joel and Ethan Coen and Warren Beatty. The Coens earned four nominations at the 2008 Oscars for their work as writers (adapted screenplay), directors, producers and editors on No Country for Old Men, winning for all but editing.
Beatty also earned four nominations at the 1979 Oscars for Heaven Can Wait. He later received the same number of nominations at the 1982 ceremony for Reds. He served as the director, writer, producer and lead actor in both films. Beatty won the best directing honor for Reds.
Composer Alan Menken was also nominated four times for 1991's Beauty and the Beast, one for the score and three in the best original song category.
The nominations for the 2019 Oscars were announced on Tuesday morning by Kumail Nanjiani and Tracee Ellis Ross. The 2019 Academy Awards will take place on Feb. 24 at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood. The broadcast will air on ABC at 5 p.m. PT.
Jan. 23, 4:59 p.m. A previous version of this story incorrectly omitted the Coen brothers and included Orson Welles. Welles was nominated for three Oscars for Citizen Kane, not four, as at the time the best picture award went to the studio, not the individual producers.
