Oscar Nominations Bring Surprises, Snubs
The 2019 Academy Awards has been shaping up to be one of the most unpredictable ceremonies yet (we still don't have a host!) and today's nominations did little to change that.

The nods brought quite a few surprises. "Black Panther" made history as the first superhero film to get Best Picture nom, and Netflix broke through the traditional studio system to get 10 nominations for "Roma," making it tied with "The Favourite" for the most nods. Roma's Yalitza Aparicio was also a surprise inclusion in the Best Supporting Actress category instead of Claire Foy, Nicole Kidman, Michelle Yeoh or Emily Blunt.

In terms of snubs, "If Beale Street Could Talk" was shut out of the Best Picture and Best Director race (though Regina King was recognized in the Supporting Actress category), Timothee Chalamet did not  get nominated in Best Supporting Actor for "Beautiful Boy," Bradley Cooper, Ethan Hawke, Peter Farrelly, Ryan Coogler and Barry Jenkins didn't crack the Best Director category (though Cooper got an acting nod), and "Won’t You Be My Neighbor" and "Three Identical Strangers" were not nominated for Best Documentary, losing out to the beloved "Minding the Gap" (now streaming on Hulu) and "Hale County This Morning, This Evening." John Krasinski's "A Quiet Place" only earned one nod, for sound editing. "Crazy Rich Asians" was also shut out, despite many predicting that Michelle Yeoh would get a Supporting Actress nod.
