Greta Gerwig, Margot Robbie, Charles Melton, And More Who Were Snubbed At This Year's Oscar Nominations

The 2024 awards season is in full swing, and like Moira Rose, it's truly my favorite season. Already, we've seen some big winners at the Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards, as well as some shocking nomination surprises, like Lily Gladstone not being nominated for a BAFTA.

All of that leads us to this morning when the 2024 Oscar nominations were announced. Oppenheimer led the way with 13 nominations, followed by Poor Things with 11 nominations.

Lily Gladstone made history as the first Native American woman to be nominated for Best Actress for her work as Mollie in Killers of the Flower Moon.

Colman Domingo's nomination for his portrayal of Bayard Rustin in Rustin marked only the second time an openly gay man has been nominated for playing an LGBTQ+ character.

Previously, Ian McKellen was nominated in 1999 for his work as James Whale in Gods and Monsters.

There were also quite a few actors who became first-time Oscar nominees, like America Ferrera, Emily Blunt, Sterling K. Brown, and Danielle Brooks for their work in Barbie, Oppenheimer, American Fiction, and The Color Purple respectively.

And, for the first time in the Academy Awards history, three of the 10 movies nominated for Best Picture were directed by women — Justine Triet's Anatomy of a Fall, Greta Gerwig's Barbie, and Celine Song's Past Lives.

Greta is also the first woman to direct three Best Picture nominees for Lady Bird, Little Women, and Barbie.

While there were a ton of much deserved nominations, this year's Oscar nominations didn't come without some major snubs, IMO.

To start, Greta Gerwig did not get a nomination for Best Director and Margot Robbie did not get a Best Actress nomination for Barbie.

Greta did receive a nomination alongside Noah Baumbach for Best Adapted Screenplay, while Margot got a nomination for Best Picture for her work as a producer on Barbie.

Celine Song did not get a nomination for Best Director and Greta Lee did not get a Best Actress nomination for Past Lives.

Charles Melton didn't score his first Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor. In fact, May December only snagged one nomination for Best Original Screenplay.

Other acting nominee hopefuls that were left off were Andrew Scott for All of Us Strangers, Zac Efron for The Iron Claw, Fantasia Barrino for The Color Purple, Rachel McAdams for Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret, Aunjanue Ellis-Taylor for Origin, and more.

All of that is to say, a lot of people took to X, formerly Twitter, to voice their frustration and disappointment, including me, about some of the biggest 2024 Oscar nomination snubs. Here are some of their reactions:
