Leading the nominations this year is Vice - a satirical biopic of former US Vice-President Dick Cheney - which has six.
A Star Is Born, which stars Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, has five nods, as do The Favourite and Green Book.
Mary Poppins Returns and Spike Lee's BlackkKlansman have four apiece.
Let's hope A Star Is Born wins something, if only so Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper can recreate the film's excruciating award ceremony scene live on stage.
It is likely to be the biggest film winner of the night. She is close to a dead cert for best drama actress, and it will also probably be named best film drama.
He's in with a shot of winning best drama actor, best director or both, and it would be a big upset if it doesn't pick up best song for Shallow.
Vice leads the nominations and is likely to win one or two (probably including Christian Bale in best film comedy/musical actor for playing Cheney), but may be overshadowed on the night.
