The actress, who won an Oscar in 2014 for her role in 12 Years a Slave, has received multiple nominations from critics this year for Us, including one at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, but this was not enough to bag her a second Oscar nomination.

Meanwhile, let's all celebrate the many good things about these Oscar nominations, which also include the fact that "Joker" seems to have broken the curse on genre movies, since it leads the field with 11 nominations, among them Best Picture, Best Actor (Joaquin Phoenix) and Best Director (Todd Phillips). Ever Academy Award nomination list has its set of snubs, and Little Women director Greta Gerwig was one.

Last week, the British Film Academy was criticized for its nominations' lack of diversity; all best picture contenders were directed by men and not a single person of color was among the nominated actors.

Bong Joon-ho's class satire "Parasite" has six nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director.

With her best actress nod for Little Women, Saiorse Ronan has been nominated for four Oscars despite being just 25.

Another double nominee this year is Cynthia Erivo, who's up for best actress and best original song for Harriet.

Some users even went as far to say that Johansson's performance in "Marriage Story" wasn't even worthy of a nomination.

In the history of the Oscars, only five women have ever been nominated for best director - including Gerwig, for 2017's "Lady Bird".

Well-deserving actors and artists got their nods, while some of the finest work of the year was completely ignored per the Oscars' unadventurous prerogative, and a few freakish nominations just made no sense at all.

Yes, Robert De Niro may already have his fair share of Oscars gold on the mantlepiece (he previously won for his roles in Raging Bull and The Godfather Part II), yet the actor was unable to secure a nomination for the Irishman.

Sam Mendes' 1917 follows two British soldiers during World War I as they're given a seemingly impossible mission.

As soon as the Oscar nominations were revealed to the public on Monday, the controversy started pouring in with the various snubs.

There really is an Oscar season.

"Bombshell", the female-led drama which depicts the sexual harassment scandal that ousted Fox News co-founder Roger Ailes, was a surprise absence from the best picture list. "Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood" came out July 25.
