Oscars are hella white (again), and here are some big snubs & surprises from today's nominations



I mean, it was expected ages ago that the Oscar nods would be this white and male, but actually seeing it go down... yikes. Anyway, here are some of the biggest surprises and snubs from today's nominations (you can find those here).

-- The biggest snub, as most noticed, was Jennifer Lopez for Hustlers. She got the GG and SAG nominations and those are precursors for an Oscar nod, though not always guaranteed.
-- On a more hilarious side, Disney's meh Frozen 2 was snubbed in the animated feature category, when the Mouse House was expecting to dominate in the category. The still have Toy Story 4 in the mix.
-- In the lead actor category, both Christian Bale (Ford v Ferrari - which ended up getting a BP nod) and Taron Egerton (Rocketman) were both snubbed in an already-packed category. I say they're snubbed because they both got GG/SAG/BAFTA nods before this.
-- If you're on Twitter right now, you'll notice both Awkwafina (who won the GG for 'The Farewell') and Lupita Nyong'o (Us) trending. Why - because they were snubbed as well in a category that is almost entirely white. Thank Cynthia Erivo (who actually got two nods this year - actress and song for the terrible 'Harriet') for breaking that.
-- Finally, we'll look at best director. Or, you know, the annual sausagefest. You might notice that Greta Gerwig is also trending on twitter this fine morning, and for that reason. Yet again we got another year where it's five men up for director. The surprise here is how Todd Phillips' hack ass got the fifth spot when there were more deserving nominees.

i can't wait to never see that ugly ass clown make up shit ever again

heath ledger's joker legacy deserved better
It really did. If this was the year The Dark Knight came out, MAYBE (still doesn't justify how male-centric this shit is) I'd understand the 11 nominations for that movie and Heath. But for Joaquin? Really?
yup. joker is basically stealing from heath's joker and putting it in taxi driver/a scorsese movie. there's nothing original or inventive about it.
ACCURATE
NEGL, if J.Lo got nominated and won, and I would have to watch Maid in Manhattan knowing that out of the main couple Jennifer Lopez was the Oscar winner, i would just scream into the void for all of eternity...
Legit depressed about the complete snub of The Farewell and, while I knew it was a long shot, the complete lack of acting noms for Parasite. And Todd Philips for best director but no Gerwig or Wang??? Disgusting.

The academy continues to fail us.

lol
im so bummed by the Hustlers snub really. both Constance and JLo were snubbed, the main ensemble (Keke, Lili etc) were great on their own and shined well
ia


Her tweets are killing me today.
I can't believe I wasn't following her before.
she's extremely annoying imo 75% of the time so i actually just unfollowed her lmao
That's bullshit for Lupita. She was really great in Us.


OMG
Gasp
I'm honestly so angry that no female directors were nominated. Same shit, different year. Also, Lupita, Awkwafina, and JLo should definitely have been nominated. It's also really telling that Parasite got a fair amount of non-acting awards, but none in the acting categories :(

I'm also sad about Taron Egerton and Willem Dafoe not getting noms, but damn. The Academy really needs to do better and stop rewarding white male mediocrity all the damn time.
Rewatched Willem's monologue and am mad all over again!!

Just seeing the screenshot made me shiver. I didn’t like that movie very much so Dafoe was really the only nom I was hoping for, and I didn’t even get that. I thought he’d be a lock until he started getting overlooked by other awards 😒
Lol, I love this scene.

This should be their cinematography clip at the show

Harriet sucked. And Cynthia sucks. I cannot believe she got nominated for Best Actress. Lawd. Off the top of my head here are a few black actresses more deserving this year:

1. Lupita - US
2. Naomie Harris - Black and Blue (the movie wasn't that great but neither was Harriet)
3. Da'Vine Joy Randolph - Dolemite Is My Name
4. Amadou Mbow - Atlantics
5. Gugu Mbatha Raw - Fast Color
6. Alfre Woodard - Clemency, Juanita, or Just Mercy
7. Jodie Turner-Smith - Queen and Slim
6. Lizzo (and her ass wasn't even in a movie)

Basically anybody other than Cynthia!!
Lizzo was in Hustlers for three scenes and she was a delight
Really bummed Neon did Clemency so dirty. And Da'Vine Joy Randolph was fantastic, I really hope we see her in more stuff.
Agreed
Fast Color should've been nominated for awards like BA for Gugu and BP, but we can't have nice things. T___T
Lmao. Nah, that movie and everything about it was agressively mediocre.

I'm so mad Atlantique didn't get nominated for Best International Feature Film, TF


Okay, so when a film gets nominated for Best Picture, the whole main cast of said film usually goes to the Oscars, right?? Asking for No Reason in Particular!
Yes!
Lol, I thought so but I wanted to make sure I wasn't setting myself up for disappointment.
i wouldn't hold your breath on a certain someone lmao, but usually yes that is the case

i do hope tim and saoirse are the ones to present little women for BP but it'll prob be her and florence (or laura) since they're all nominated

this is gross


The Parasite actors should have gotten nominated. Awkwafina should have been nominated. I don't watch horror movies so I didn't see Us. Movies like 1917 and Irishman are so boring, just more war or filled with old white men. Ugh.
