The nominations for the 96th annual Academy Awards were revealed, leaving many shocked and stunned in a few categories.
Fans were deeply upset after Leonardo DiCaprio was missing from the Best Actor category. In Killers of the Flower Moon, the actor played Ernest Burkhart, opposite of Lily Gladstone, who earned a Best Actress nomination.
Costar Robert De Niro was recognized in the Best Supporting Actor category for the film as well, leaving many heartbroken to see DiCaprio not get the nod.
In The Color Purple, the film only earned one nomination with Danielle Brooks taking home the nod for supporting actress. Cast members Fantasia Barrino and Taraji P. Henson unfortunately did not get the nominations they were looking for.
Even though Barbie scored a number of nods for the Oscars including Best Picture, Greta Gerwig was left out of the Best Director category, although she landed a Best Adapted Screenplay nomination. Additionally, Margot Robbie did not earn a nomination for her role, but she is recognized as a producer in the Best Picture lineup.
As of this year, Justine Triet became the 8th woman ever nominated for best director. Lina Wertmüooer became the first woman to win in the category a whopping 47 years after the Oscars began — and it took another 32 years before a second woman, Kathryn Bigelow to win.
Willem Dafoe didn’t make it in for his supporting role in Poor Things, though his costar Mark Ruffalo slid into the category, and the film earned many more nods.
Wonka and The Iron Claw were also shut out altogether.
Overall, many were displeased with the lack of diversity in nominations for the awards this year as well as the female nominations across multiple categories.
The 96th annual Academy Awards, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, will air Sunday, March 10, at 7 p.m. ET on ABC.
