'Harriet' star Cynthia Erivo and 'The Irishman' director Martin Scorsese each earned two nods, while the rest of the best director nominees nabbed three apiece across the Academy's 24 categories.

Scarlett Johansson and Cynthia Erivo were among the 10 people who received double mentions when the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced its nominations for the 2020 Oscars on Monday morning.

Both women were recognized for their acting, nabbing nods for best actress. Johansson was also nominated for her supporting role in Taika Waititi's Jojo Rabbit. Erivo's second mention came for her songwriting, alongside Joshuah Brian Campbell, for Harriet's "Stand Up." Her recognitions are the only nods for Kasi Lemmons' Harriet Tubman biopic.

Four out of the five nominees for best director are triple nominees this year, receiving nods for their adapted and original screenplays, as well as their producing: Bong Joon Ho (Parasite), Sam Mendes (1917), Todd Phillips (Joker) and Quentin Tarantino (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood). The only director nom not recognized for all three is Martin Scorsese (The Irishman), but he did nab a second mention for producing. Steven Zaillian, who wrote The Irishman script, was nominated in the best adapted screenplay category.

Among the other double nominees are Randy Newman for best original song (Toy Story 4) and best original score (Marriage Story); Emma Tillinger Koskoff for her work as a producer on two of the best motion picture nominees (The Irishman and Joker); Taika Waititi for best adapted screenplay and producer (Jojo Rabbit); Noah Baumbach for best original screenplay and producer (Marriage Story); David Heyman as a double producer for two best picture noms (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and Marriage Story); Dominic Tuohy for best visual effects (1917 and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker); and Mark Ulano for best sound mixing (Ad Astra and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood).

Joker leads the nominations with 11, immediately followed by The Irishman, 1917 and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which received 10 nominations apiece. Jojo Rabbit, Little Women, Marriage Story and Parasite nabbed six noms each, and Ford v Ferrari got four nods.

The 92nd Academy Awards will go hostless for the second year in a row and airs Sunday, Feb. 9, on ABC.
