Which stars suffered Oscars nomination snubs?

Which stars suffered Oscars nomination snubs?

Here's a rundown of some of the most interesting.

Netflix must be celebrating today, with not only "Roma" pulling in 10 nominations but the Coen brothers receiving a nod for penning their anthology western film. Justin Hurwitz just won a couple Oscars for La La Land, so perhaps the Academy thought he's had his moment, but the First Man score is a real standout.

With "Roma", Netflix has scored its first best picture nomination, something the streaming giant has dearly sought. Everyone wanted to take another look at Lady Gaga, who was also fêted for co-writing the popular ballad "Shallow", but Bradley Cooper will go to bed tonight with only a fraction of the nominations he was expected to garner.

Best Director at the 2019 Oscars will also go to a man for the 10th year in a row after no women were nominated for the award.

The best picture category has long kryptonite to superhero movies like "Black Panther" even though it was the year's biggest domestic box-office hit and a bona fide cultural event.

The real victor here?

There was also disappointment for Ethan Hawke and John David Washington, who missed out on best actor nods for First Reformed and BlacKkKlansman respectively, amid the surprise inclusion of Willem Dafoe, who landed a spot for playing Vincent van Gogh in At Eternity's Gate.

'Won't You Be My Neighbor' or at least give me a nomination?

Colman, from Norwich, stars as Queen Anne in The Favourite, while Bale was recognised for his portrayal of controversial former U.S. vice-president Dick Cheney in Vice.

Getting a nomination, of course, is no guarantee you'll end up taking home an award.

And veteran film-maker Spike Lee, who spoke to Sky News in December about the lack of diversity at the Oscars, is nominated in the best director category for the first time in his 40-year-career.

Earlier this morning, Chadwick Boseman's first cinematic solo outing as T'Challa made history by becoming the first comic book adaptation to ever earn a Best Picture nomination at the Oscars. While Cooper received nominations in the best actor and best picture categories, it would've been nice to see him recognized for impressively directing his first feature film.

Genre films always have handicapped chances during awards season but after relatively weak showings at the Golden Globes and numerous professional awards, the Oscar chances of fans' favorite films seemed low.

Between her work in bringing back a beloved childhood character to great praise by critics and audiences alike and her portrayal of a terrified mother grasping to save her family in "A Quiet Place", you'd think Blunt would have been a shoo-in.

Best director: Alfonso Cuaron, "Roma"; Spike Lee, "BlacKkKlansman"; Pawel Pawlikowski, "Cold War"; Yorgos Lanthimos, "The Favourite"; Adam McKay, "Vice". (It calls to mind Peter Sarsgaard, a similarly just under-the-radar actor who infamously won almost every critic's award, along with the Golden Globe for his performance in 2004's Shattered Glass - only to not even score an Oscar nod.) But not this year.
