Ford v Ferrari, the movie that is more about the bond between team manager Carroll Shelby and driver Ken Miles than it is about the battle at Le Mans between two car companies, has been nominated as one of nine finalists for the 2020 Academy Award as best picture, the academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced.

The movie also is one of five finalists for the Oscar for sound mixing, and production team members  Michael McCusker and Andrew Buckland were nominated for the Oscar for film editing, and Don Sylvester for sound editing.

The movie Joker led all films with 11 nominations, one more than either The Irishman, Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood or 1917.
