The Mexican film “Roma” has been nominated for 10 Academy Awards, including best picture of the year and best foreign film.

Written and directed by Alfonso Cuarón, who also made “Gravity” and “Tu Mamá También,” and produced by the film-streaming giant Netflix, the gritty, black-and-white film also received nominations for best actress and best supporting actress, for Yalitza Aparicio and Marina de Tavira, respectively.

Set in Mexico City’s Colonia Roma during the 1970s, “Roma” portrays the complex relationship between a middle-class family and their live-in maid during a family crisis with a backdrop of political repression and social protest.

The 91 Academy Awards will be held on Feb. 24.
