Wonder Woman receives zero Oscar nominations

So it looks like it will be a toss-up between McDormand, who has one Oscar for Supporting Actress in crime drama Fargo (1996) and British actress Sally Hawkins, nominated previously for Supporting Actress for the Woody Allen comedy Blue Jasmine (2013).

For many stars, this morning marked a once in a lifetime moment-their first Oscar nomination.

Also making history is Rachel Morrison, Mudbound's director of photography, who is the first woman to ever receive an Oscar nomination for best cinematography.

Gerwig follows only Lina Wertmuller, Jane Campion, Sofia Coppola and Kathryn Bigelow - the sole woman to win (for The Hurt Locker). We'll just have to wait until March 4 to find out for ourselves. You can't say it's because the Academy doesn't care about comic book movies: Logan was nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay.

McDormand - who won a best-actress Oscar for "Fargo" - and Oldman have already won Golden Globe, Critics' Choice and SAG Awards for their lead performances.

Desta continues: "Let's start with 'Mudbound, ' the Netflix drama directed by Dee Rees".

Peele's Get Out script received an original screenplay nod along with The Big Sick, Lady Bird, Shape of Water and Three Billboards. But even after receiving an astonishing critical reception at Sundance, the film didn't spark the expected bidding war, and Variety reported that some distributors were experiencing a kind of post-Birth of a Nation squeamishness. The film also wasn't nominated in the Best Picture category.

For Mudbound, Blige is up for best supporting actress and best original song (with Raphael Saadiq and Taura Stinson, for "Mighty River").

Among the snubs were actors Tom Hanks (The Post) and James Franco (The Disaster Artist), although the latter has been battling sexual-misconduct allegations.

While "The Post" scored nominations for Best Picture and Best Actress (Meryl Streep), it didn't land in other categories, suggesting its hopes are fairly slim. For a straight up, inarguable horror movie in the Best Picture race, you have to go back to "The Exorcist" in 1973. The Dark Knight Trilogy director earned a nomination for Best Director. The movie, written by Canadian filmmaker Anita Doron, also got a Golden Globe nomination for best animated film.

Before Haddish and Serkis revealed the nominees, an all-star group of actresses including Priyanka Chopra, Gal Gadot, Molly Shannon, Zoe Saldana, and Rebel Wilson were featured in a mini-film that introduced the categories.
