Your guide to this year's Oscar nominations

All the snubs (no best director nod for Bradley Cooper!?) and surprises (Black Panther for best picture!)    As expected, none of our wish-list long shots made the cut. Among the higher-profile snubs, it’s shocking that Bradley Cooper wasn't nominated for directing A Star Is Born. Two supporting actors widely expected to makes their respective brackets failed to do so: Timothée Chalamet in Beautiful Boy and Claire Foy in First Man. And the beloved Mister Rogers documentary Won't You Be My Neighbor? is, surprisingly, not a contender. Happiest inclusions of the morning? Willem Dafoe continues his impressive run of nominations after last year's The Florida Project with the immersive Vincent van Gogh biopic At Eternity's Gate. And of all the wonderful songs in Mary Poppins Returns, AMPAS voters picked the loveliest one, "The Place Where Lost Things Go," even though it's something of a heartbreaker. When Emily Blunt performs it, expect tears. The Oscars will air Sunday, February 24, on ABC.
