2019 Academy Awards: And the Nominees Are ...

From Timothee Chalamet fans losing it to Spike Lee finally getting that Best Director nod, the 2019 Oscars are something to talk about.

As to be expected Twitter is raising a ruckus over the Oscar nominations which were announced Tuesday.

Many fans were outraged, various film critics scoffed, and a cherished few delighted in seeing some of their favorite actors and films get their due.

The Twitterverse erupted early Tuesday morning as Tracee Ellis Ross and Kumail Nanjiani announced the nominees for the 91st Academy Awards, which saw both progress and setbacks (not a single female director was nominated).

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.
