The announcement of the 2019 Oscar nominations Tuesday morning made at least one thing clear — queer roles are up for a ton of awards this year.
Alas, not all queer films are created equal. Many fans and critics are arguing that although many nominated films include queer characters, some titles don't pass muster when it comes to creating inclusive and fully fleshed out LGBT characters and storylines.
It's also worth noting that among all the queer roles for which actors are nominated this year, none of them are in "issue films" that boil the LGBT experience down to coming out or queer trauma — a refreshing change of pace.
To start, The Favourite snagged a staggering 10 nominations.
