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.

lmfao this dude is basically a Lifetime biopic screenwriter. i hope he never wins
Oscars are shit, always have been. Watch them give Greta Gerwig the award for best screenplay because they fucked up.

Lol no at Scarjo.
compared to the other adapted nominees i fucking hope they give it to greta

Yeah she pretty much has this category.
Happy for Florence!

Pissed for j lo, awkwafina, Greta, and Lupita (though I didn’t think Lupita was really in the race like the other three)

Rme at scarjo
I won’t be tuning it but I hope Saoirse & Parasite win. Those were two of the best films of the year.
I would boycott the awards
don't @ me about how it's not possible
it is absolutely a choice
If those hideous false teeth won Best Actor, then Taron should have at least been nominated.
This is bullshit. Jennifer, Awkwafina and Lupita got subbed. I also surprised that Beyoncé didnt get a nomination for best song. And the academy continues to shut out women when it comes to best director.
I'm so sad about Jlo. She was snubbed.
So pissed about the lack of women directors in a year with some really strong women directed films. Alma Har'el, Marielle Heller, Lulu Wang, Greta Gerwig, Melina Matsoukas, Céline Sciamma, all made better films than Todd Phillips' Joker.

And of course the whiteness in the acting categories.

feh.
And how did the Two Popes sneak in there?
RIGHT!? I've been making Two Popes jokes since they got nominated for GGs and then they both went and got Oscar nominated -_-

So both Marriage Story and Popes can get in, but Dolemite ~mysteriously shut out
I really don't get the acclaim Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is getting. It was good but it was also REALLY self-indulgent and boring too. You just know the rough draft of that movie came from a fanfiction folder on Tarantino's hard drive. And two chapters alone were dedicated to Sharon Tate's dirty sweaty feet in her cowboy boots.
Taron's snub has me like

I'm definitely disappointed most about the lack of noms for The Farewell
A24 and STX like... what happened here.
Apparently A24's campaign person left for Netflix back in 2017
Wonder if they were on the Irishman/MS campaign.
