Oscar Nominations: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly


Isabelle Huppert, a legend of French cinema, is finally an Oscar nominee!

Mel Gibson, who's an amazing filmmaker, is back in the good graces of the Academy.

20th nomination for Meryl Streep, the "most overrated" actress according to one Donald Trump.

Eight nominations for Arrival!

I failed to predict it but the production design of Passengers is astonishing.

With those two nominations in the Best Original Song category, Emma Stone will very likely sing twice during the Oscar ceremony.


After getting all sorts of pre-Oscar citations, Deadpool couldn't muster even one nomination in at least Makeup and Hairstyling.

Only one nomination (Doctor Strange for Visual Effects) for MCU films this year.

No nominations for Emily Blunt, Amy Adams, and Hugh Grant.

"We Know the Way," the superior song in Moana (IMO), was not nominated.

Not a single nomination, even in the technical categories, for The Witch, still one of 2016's greatest films regardless of genre.


Only one nomination for the work of art that is Silence.

Your Name was shut out of the Best Animated Feature race after winning among Los Angeles critics and being the best-selling Japanese animated film of all time in the world.
