Nominations for the 91 annual Academy Awards were announced on Tuesday morning and, while the list includes most of the expected candidates, there are some of the big names who will not be performing at the Dolby Theater next month.
Here are the five most notable snubs of this year's Oscar nominations:
NOMINATIONS OSCAR 2019: A STAR IS BORN & # 39 ;, & # 39; GREEN BOOK & # 39 ;, BLACK, & # 39; & # 39; VICE & # 39 ;, & # 39; VICE & # 39 ;, & # 39; BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY & # 39; LEAD NODS
1. Bradley Cooper, best director of "A Star Is Born"
While Cooper won a total of four nominations today for Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Original Song, the actor missed the one he most wanted: Best Management Achievement. Cooper can take comfort in the fact that his fellow leader, Ben Affleck, suffered the same fate with "Argo" just six years ago. The omission of Affleck helped propel his film to the Best Movie victory. Maybe Cooper can follow the same playbook in silver.
2. Emily Blunt, Best Actress for "Mary Poppins Returns"
To put it bluntly, this is a big surprise. The role of the perfect nanny earned Julie Andrews the Oscar for Best Actress of 1964 for the original "Mary Poppins". Blunt's favorable comments and his inclusion in the Golden Globes, Critics & Choice and Screen Actors Guild Awards made it an apparently safe bet for the Oscars. Unfortunately, her place was for Yalitza Aparicio for her film debut in the Mexican film "Roma". It can take more than a spoonful of sugar to make Blunt's omission decrease.
3. Emily Blunt, best supporting actress for "A Quiet Place"
It is likely to be a quiet place in the Blunt house today. In addition to her enthusiasm for "Mary Poppins Returns," the actress was considered a possibility for her supporting role in the crushing horror film "A Quiet Place" by her husband John Krasinski. Blunt was forced to remain silent for most of the movie. The second slight today can make her want to scream.
4. John David Washington, Best Actor in "BlacKkKlansman"
He is the son of two-time Academy Award winner Denzel Washington, so there is probably gold in his blood. Young Washington received high praise for his role as the first African-American police officer in the Colorado Springs Police Department. The invitations to the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild Awards had a good reputation, as did the heavy uproar of the film. But even when "BlacKkKlansman" garnered six nominations, including Best Director for Spike Lee and Best Supporting Actor for Adam Driver, Washington could not take advantage of the trip. Dad Denzel was actually nominated in the last two years, so it's a pity that John David can not get to be three in a row for the Washington clan.
5. Ryan Coogler, best director for "Black Panther"
This is not a shock, but Coogler was definitely seen as a wild card in the Best Director career, often unpredictable. "Black Panther" was the biggest hit of 2018, as well as one of the best reviewed. His recognition in several technical areas helped him get seven nominations today, but the Academy decided that eight would have been more than enough. Coogler can still take pride in leading the first superhero movie to make the Best Movie lineup.
