What are the most talked about ‘snubs’ of this year’s Academy Awards?
James Franco, star of “The Disaster Artist,” was snubbed by the Academy (despite winning a Golden Globe) after multiple women accused him of sexual harassment. But the film was nominated in the best adapted screenplay category.
Also somewhat snubbed was “I, Tonya,” which did not get a Best Picture nom (although Margot Robbie was nominated in the Best Actress category). And Armie Hammer was left out of Best Supporting Actor for “Call Me By Your Name.”
But the biggest snub of all was “Wonder Woman.” The movie — the top-grossing superhero original movie both domestically and globally — got zero nominations.
How about a full run down of the nominees?
The Shape of Water brought in the most nominations with 13. Dunkirk received 8 nominations and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri got 7. All three films were nominated for Best Picture. Meryl Streep continued her record run of nominations. Her nod for Lead Actress for The Post is Streep’s 21st Oscar nomination.
The Oscars will be March 4th on ABC with Jimmy Kimmel as host.
