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.

You're still a star, TARON!

Jlo should’ve won the GG smh and been nominated. Give her ..her dues..

Boycott the Oscars ! It’s boring anyway
the oscars are just confusing to me at this point. like even aside from its blatant racism, sexism and homophobia, the winners still SO RARELY make any sense whatsoever?? like i love rami malek but wtf at THAT being his win!? and i'm still pressed about crash winning best picture over brokeback mountain, chalamet not winning best actor in 2018, and toni collette not even being nominated for best actress for hereditary. logic, taste and oscars are mutually exclusive things

I'm late, but wtf at nominating one black actress for best actress and then it being Cynthia Evo for Harriett which was a terrible film. And once again a slave film which seem to be one of the only categories of film most black movies get nominated in.


You really telling me Alfre Woodard, the actresses from both The Farewell and Parasite couldn't get a nomination. The rest of the categories were expected and disappointing. Nothing that made me go wow I should check that movie out to see that person's performance.
The Oscars will never change tbh... not to sound pessimistic but people really think they care about people's frustration and outrage?
my only consolation is people hating them more and more every year. i really think an oscar will gradually come to mean nothing.
I see Hollywood is still deeply racist to this day and mostly prefers white folks that suck up to the people at the top, never mind their lack of or overrated skill. Some of the nominations I can get behind, such as Parasite, but the snubs make this uninteresting

And random kinda sorta, but lol @ Antonio Banderas being considered by some as a POC?! but maybe people don't realize he's from Spain

Will be interesting to see how many people actually watch this. Just wait for the list of winners honestly.
What is with all these Hollywood people acting so woke yet they all vote for their white friends every year?
i feel like wokeness is more focused on how you look than what you do. it's like that shirt that says "this is what a feminist looks like"...rather than "this is what a feminist does" followed by action lol
the voting is anonymous. all they need for their true colors (or color-white) to come out.
Saorsie was good but she’s getting i to jlaw territory where they’re just nominating her bc she did a movie that year. Lupita should have her nom

Excited for parasite and parasite only

Dead at everyone wanting hustlers to get noms 💀

Knives out was fun but screenplay nom worthy IT IS NOT

Boring ass greta not getting nom... I love to see it!

The best part of joquqinkdjejd as joker was when he was QUIET
