The 2019 Academy Award nominations were announced on Tuesday, and while there were some exciting firsts, including Black Panther becoming the first comic book movie to earn a Best Picture nod, there were also many snubs. You can’t please everyone, especially Toni Collette fans.

While it’s easy to say that award shows are frivolous and snubs don’t matter, talent should be recognized, and representation in Hollywood continues to be an issue and having diversity on screen and behind the camera must continue to be a priority. So, let’s rage.

Here’s what the Oscars got wrong according to the people of the internet.

TONI COLLETTE

For those who weren’t too scared to watch Hereditary, they know the scary truth – Toni Collette was robbed.





ETHAN HAWKE

Ethan Hawke has been nominated for an Oscar four times and not won…but at least he was nominated. #JusticeForFirstReformed





EMILY BLUNT

She can save children through music and silently deliver a baby in a bathtub, but Emily Blunt can’t get an Oscar nom? Supercalirobbed.




JOHN DAVID WASHINGTON

The BlacKkKlansman actor received his first Golden Globe nomination for playing real life detective Ron Stallworth, but was unable to infiltrate the Oscars.




RYAN COOGLER

Although Black Panther made history as the first comic book film to score a Best Picture nomination, its director Ryan Coogler was left off the Best Director list.




TIMOTHÉE CHALAMET

Timothée Chalamet was more Snubbed Boy than Beautiful Boy.




BRADLEY COOPER

Although B Coop did score a nomination for Best Actor for his role in A Star Is Born, the first-time director was shut out of the Best Director category. Rob Lowe is not impressed.



WON’T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR?

We don’t want to live on the street that doesn’t nominate the Mr. Rogers documentary Won’t You Be My Neighbor?.




PADDINGTON BEAR 2

People really love that little bear.




IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK

…it would ask where its nominations are.




WOMEN

Breaking news, Hollywood (and society as a whole) is still ignoring women.



On the upside, maybe all these snubs could lead to next year’s Best Picture winner.
