Oscar Nominations: Lady Gaga, Jennifer Hudson Snubbed! “West Side Story” Screenplay Snubbed, Judi Dench Is In!

Share

First round of Oscar noms: “West Side Story” Tony Kushner screenplay which was praised everywhere, was snubbed.
Surprise nominations for Judi Dench in “Belfast” and JK Simmons in “Being the Ricardos.”
“Power of the Dog” pulled it out for Jesse Plemons. And his wife in real life, Kirsten Dunst for the same movie. Congrats!

Second round:
Lady Gaga snubbed for Best Actress! She was supposed to be a lock! Jared Leto didn’t make Supporting Actor! Jennifer Hudson snubbed as Aretha! No lead Black actresses!
Three of the four actors in “Being the Ricardos” were nominated. Shout out to Nina Arianda, who was wonderful as Vivian Vance even though she wasn’t nominated. Her day is coming!
