The Oscar nominations were released Tuesday morning and one fan favorite title was utterly snubbed in all categories: Wonder Woman.

The breakout D.C hit starring Gal Gadot was hoped by fans to at least get something in the big awards race — like perhaps a directing nod to Patty Jenkins, who overcame industry skepticism to launch the first female-fronted superhero box office blockbuster in, well, ever.

Or maybe at least something in technical categories, like sound mixing or costumes? But no. Wonder Woman will just have to be content with $800 million in worldwide box office, critical acclaim and legions of fans who found the film inspiring.

Other snubs included: The lack of best picture nod for the terrific I, Tonya (though Margot Robbie was deservedly nominated for best actress), Academy favorite Tom Hanks missing out on best actor for The Post, James Franco not getting his expected best actor nod in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations and indies favorites The Florida Project and The Big Sick not getting a best picture nod.
