From Diversity to Deadpool Snub, What Everyone Loved and Hated About the Oscar Nominations

Updated

Awards season has reached peak frenzy.

The nominees for the 89th annual Academy Awards were announced live at 8:18 a.m. ET on Tuesday, Jan. 24 and promptly after, the online reactions started flooding in.

Some of the morning’s biggest surprises included Michael Shannon earning a Best Supporting Actor nod for Nocturnal Animals and Viggo Mortensen with a Best Actor nomination for Captain Fantastic.

Fans who tuned into the livestream first thing in the morning immediately took to Twitter to express surprise at some of the morning’s biggest snubs, which included Finding Dory and Sing boxed out for Best Animated Feature and Amy Adams snubbed for her acting in Arrival, despite the film’s Best Picture nomination. (In fact, “No Amy Adams” even started trending on Twitter.)

While Taraji P. Henson didn’t receive any nominations for the Screen Actors Guild Awards or the Golden Globes for her performance in Hidden Figures, fans felt she was robbed of a Best Actress nod.

People also noted some of the historic nominations, including La La Land tying for the all-time record for most nominations, with 14.

The diversity of this year’s nominations were celebrated, as well.

The 89th annual Oscars, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, will air Feb. 26 on ABC at 8:30 p.m. ET.
