"Denzel Washington got nominated for a movie literally no one has even seen, that sits at a 49 percent on Rotten Tomatoes," one movie fan tweeted. "It was a critical and commercial flop. But James Franco (who is innocent till proven guilty) made an instant classic, with a 91 percent on Rotten Tomatoes."
While the Twitterverse was especially angry that Armie Hammer and James Franco didn't get recognized in the best actor category for their respective roles, people were also particularly disappointed to hear that "Boss Baby" is now an Oscar-nominated film.
"What have you people done," one person tweeted upon hearing the nomination in the Best Animated Feature Film category.
Here's what Twitter was busy freaking out over after the nominations were announced.
Mary J. Blige Is a Double Oscar Nominee
Blige received a nomination for Best Actress in a Supporting Role and Best Original Song. The performer was not only congratulated on Twitter for becoming a double Oscar nominee, but for also becoming the first woman to receive the honor for a role directed by an African-American woman.
Mary J Blige got a best supporting actress nomination and a best song nomination. I don't think anyone has ever done that
Rachel Morrison Is the First Woman to be Nominated for Best Cinematography
Morrison is the first woman in Oscar history to be nominated in the Best Cinematography category for her work in "Mudbound." Competition includes "Blade Runner 2049," "Darkest Hour," "Dunkirk" and "The Shape of Water."
Honestly, most thrilled the Academy chose to recognize Rachel Morrison--and for the first time nominating a female cinematographer. She's amazing, she deserves it, may she be the first of MANY.
Christopher Plummer Is the Oldest Nominee in History
Plummer nabbed a nomination for Best Supporting Actor after taking over Kevin Spacey's "All the Money in the World" role after sexual abuse allegations emerged against the actor. 88-year-old Plummer is now the oldest actor to receive the honor.
Christopher Plummer getting an Oscar nom for last-minute reshoots is the cherry on top of Kevin Spacey's deserved public humiliation.#Oscars2018
What a story. Walks into a role already played by another actor. Gets nine or ten days on set to reshoot the scenes. Gets an Oscar-nomination. He is fantastic in ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD, so I'd say he deserves it. But it's an incredible story. #OscarNoms
"Boss Baby" scored just a 52 percent approval rating from critics counted on Rotten Tomatoes, and yet it locked in Oscar nomination, while "LEGO Batman" -- which was hailed by critics, garnering a 91 percent approval rating on RT -- was snubbed yet again after getting the shaft from the Golden Globes.
#Oscars2018 The subject matter of both "A Silent Voice" and "In this Corner of the World" are timely and mature. How could you pic Boss Baby? I think this shows real immaturity in the academy in picking animated features. @honeyfeedfm
Armie Hammer and James Franco were both ignored in the Best Actor in a Leading Role category, and while a number of people may excuse the Academy for excluding Franco over backlash for sexual misconduct allegations, some are suspicious that Hammer missed the mark because his role had to do with a gay relationship. Others are just upset at their exclusion because they simply turned in fantastic performances. Franco perfectly portrayed real-life "Disaster Artist" Tommy Wiseau, while Hammer stunned audiences in "Call Me By Your Name."
