The most entertaining events on Twitter always involve raw emotion and there was no sector more traumatized than Timothee Chalamet stans.
The outpouring of heartbreak came as Sam Rockwell nabbed a Best Supporting Actor nomination for his portrayal of George W. Bush in "Vice." Many Chalamet fans saw the omission of their favorite actor as not only an outright snub -- as they felt he deserved recognition from the Academy for his performance in "Beautiful Boy" -- but also blamed Rockwell for apparently taking his place among the nominees.
Other surprises? Bradley Cooper wasn't recognized in the Best Director category for "A Star Is Born." Toni Collette's incredible performance in "Hereditary" was snubbed. Popular film "Crazy Rich Asians" was completely left out of all categories. People also weren't happy that the Ethan Hawke film, "First Reformed" was only nominated for Original Screenplay.
Critically-acclaimed film, "If Beale Street Could Talk" wasn't chosen for the Best Picture category. Many fans were angry that Queen biopic "Bohemian Rhapsody" was included, but the Barry Jenkins drama wasn't. Similarly, the Netflix film "The Ballad of Buster Scruggs" received two nominations but isn't up for Best Picture.
On the positive side, Alfonso Cuarón's black-and-white Netflix drama "Roma" received a lot of love. The movie is up for a whopping 10 nominations, including a Best Actress nominee for Yalitza Aparicio ("Roma is her first film credit too) and Best Supporting Actress nominee for Marina de Tavira. Another exciting nomination? Spike Lee received his first (and very well-deserved) nod in the directing category for "BlacKkKlansman."
In a disheartening turn, not a single female filmmaker was nominated in the Best Director category. Additionally, no female-directed films landed a nod in the Best Picture category.
Also tied with 10 nominations is the dark comedy "The Favourite." "A Star Is Born" and "Vice" follow behind with eight and "Black Panther" with seven.
See how Twitter reacted to the Oscar nominations.
Timothee Chalamet Snub, Sam Rockwell Surprise
Who in their right mind thinks Sam Rockwell in Vice is better than literally anyone else? I cannot for the life of me fathom voting for such a nothing performance. Confounded
The #Oscars snubs are absurd 🤦🏻♀️ Also quite confused by many of the nominees. Bradley Cooper's Directing snub is outrageous. Timothée Chalamet was robbed. Ethan Hawke, Toni Collette, Emily Blunt, Saoirse Ronan, Margot Robbie, Lucas Hedges & Joel Edgerton all deserved nominations.
#OscarNoms are kind of a mess, but here's one good & bad take, both for First Reformed; Ethan Hawke missing Best Actor is a travesty & will go down as one of the worst snubs of the entire decade. But on the flipside, Paul Schrader finally gets a long overdue nod for screenwriting
me at the academy for snubbing timothée chalamet and claire foy for best supporting, justin hurwitz for score, if beale street could talk for best picture and barry jenkins for best director this year pic.twitter.com/EpX8AGeC3L
TONI COLLETTE DIDN'T GET NOMINATED BECAUSE ACADEMY MEMBERS ARE AFRAID OF HORROR MOVIES AND THEREFORE DON'T WATCH THEM TO REALIZE THE BEST PERFORMANCE OF THE YEAR WAS HIDDEN INSIDE SOMETHING THEY VIEW AS "LOW-BROW." THANK YOU FOR COMING TO MY TED TALK. pic.twitter.com/OarNYCGoHA
