From music biopics to KKK infiltration to superhero theatrics, it can be tough keeping track of this year’s eight Best Picture Oscars nominees, let alone their separate journeys to this prestigious point. We’ve put together a refresher cheat sheet that helps you keep track of this year’s gold rush, with stats like box office, Tomatometers, and even the number of awards the nominees have collected to this point. Continue on to get it all, or take a look elsewhere with out Awards Leaderboard or the full list of Academy Awards 2019 nominees.

Black Panther (2018) 96%

  • Tomatometer rank: #1
  • Nominations: 7
  • Global box office: $1.3 billion
  • Awards (so far): 26 wins, 4th most

Critics Consensus: Black Panther elevates superhero cinema to thrilling new heights while telling one of the MCU’s most absorbing stories – and introducing some of its most fully realized characters.

BlacKkKlansman (2018) 96%

  • Tomatometer rank: #3
  • Nominations: 6
  • Global box office: $90 million
  • Awards (so far): 10 wins, 13th most

Critics Consensus: BlacKkKlansman uses history to offer bitingly trenchant commentary on current events — and brings out some of Spike Lee’s hardest-hitting work in decades along the way.

Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) 60%

  • Tomatometer rank: #8
  • Nominations: 5
  • Global box office: $855 million
  • Awards (so far): 13 wins, 12th most

Critics Consensus:  Bohemian Rhapsody hits a handful of high notes, but as an in-depth look at a beloved band, it offers more of a medley than a true greatest hits collection.

The Favourite (2018) 93%

  • Tomatometer rank: #4
  • Nominations: 10
  • Global box office: $78 million
  • Awards (so far): 55 wins, 2nd most

Green Book (2018) 78%

  • Tomatometer rank: #6
  • Nominations: 5
  • Global box office: $129 million
  • Awards (so far): 16 wins, 10th most

Critics Consensus: Green Book takes audiences on a surprisingly smooth ride through potentially bumpy subject matter, fueled by Peter Farrelly’s deft touch and a pair of well-matched leads.

Roma (2018) 95%

  • Tomatometer rank: #2
  • Nominations: 10
  • Global box office: N/A
  • Awards (so far): 71 wins, 1st most

Critics Consensus: Roma finds writer-director Alfonso Cuarón in complete, enthralling command of his visual craft – and telling the most powerfully personal story of his career.

A Star Is Born (2018) 90%

  • Tomatometer rank: #5
  • Nominations: 8
  • Global box office: $423 million
  • Awards (so far): 23 wins, 7th most

Critics Consensus:  With appealing leads, deft direction, and an affecting love story, A Star Is Born is a remake done right – and a reminder that some stories can be just as effective in the retelling.

Vice (2018) 65%

  • Tomatometer rank: #7
  • Nominations: 8
  • Global box office: $63 million
  • Awards (so far): 8 wins, 17th most

Critics Consensus: Vice takes scattershot aim at its targets, but writer-director Adam McKay hits some satisfying bullseyes – and Christian Bale’s transformation is a sight to behold.
