The Oscar nominations are here and, with that, all our opinions and feelings have been validated by a bunch of strangers. Just kidding! The academy can’t be right about everything…hence the many people and films going unrecognized. No, Bradley Cooper was not nominated for Best Director—he’ll have to settle for the eight other A Star Is Born nominations (including Best Actor—rough). Here’s everyone else (in our humble opinion) who was snubbed in some form.
While the film itself got a Best Adapted Screenplay nomination, If Beale Street Could Talk got no Best Director love.
Crazy Rich Asians
With zero noms, we just…don’t…understand.
Black Panther broke ground with its Best Picture nomination (a first for a Marvel film), but the academy declined to honor the director and co-screenwriter…which is weird.
