'The Irishman' is up for 10 Oscars at the 92nd Academy Awards, having received the second-most nominations. 'Joker' leads the way with 11 bids.

"The Irishman," Martin Scorsese's mob drama, received 10 Oscar nominations, including best picture, as the 92 annual Academy Awards were announced Monday morning. 

The film, which chronicles Philly mobster Frank Sheeran and his relationship with mob bosses Russell Buffalino and Jimmy Hoffa, drew the second-most nominations.

"Joker," Todd Phillips' emotional take on the villain's back story, was nominated 11 times — the most of any film. "Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood" and "1917" also received 10 nominations. 

On Sunday, "The Irishman" walked away with a win for best cast ensemble at the Critics Choice Awards after being nominated a whopping 14 times. 

Its Oscar nominations include best adapted screenplay, best directing and best supporting actor nods for both Al Pacino and Joe Pesci. It also scored nominations for cinematography, costume design, production design, film editing and visual effects. 

Robert De Niro was again snubbed a best actor nomination for his role as Sheeran. The best actor nominees include Adam Driver for "Marriage Story," Joaquin Phoenix for "Joker," Leonardo DiCaprio for "Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood," Antonio Banderas for "Pain and Glory" and Jonathan Pryce for "The Two Popes." 

The best picture category this year boasts nine nominees, including "Joker," "Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood," "1917," "Marriage Story," "Little Women," "Parasite," "Ford v Ferrari" and "Jojo Rabbit."

The Academy Awards will remain hostless for its second year in a row. The show will air on Feb. 9 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
