John Cho and Issa Rae announced the nominees for Oscars 2020 yesterday. While many candidates like Joker, Marriage Story, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood etc got their well-deserved nominations, it missed quite a few great candidates.
While a lot of people were upset about not getting their favourite candidates getting nominated, a lot of them were happy as well. So, here’s what twitter thought of the Oscar Nominees of 2020.
“Congratulations to those men” – Issa Rae telling it like it is on the #OscarNoms— Hazel Hayes (@TheHazelHayes) January 13, 2020
not a single oscar nomination for red velvet’s PSYCHO… just because it “isn’t a film”… disgusting— (st) (@hepbaern) January 13, 2020
There is no way that Kathy Bates in Richard Jewell was better than Jennifer Lopez in Hustlers and I will die on that hill! #OscarNoms— Jazz Tangcay (@jazzt) January 13, 2020

Oscars do the usual. I'm so mad. So few Latinx actors have ever been nominated much less win— Elmer 🇵🇷🇵🇷 Emmanuel ︽✵︽ (@elmer_e_ortiz) January 13, 2020
things i didn't ever think i would be saying in my lifetime, let alone 2020:— alex (@alex_abads) January 13, 2020
"i was so annoyed about jlo's oscar snub, i forgot about adam sandler's."
No Greta Gerwig for ‘Little Women,’ no Lulu Wang for ‘The Farewell,’ no Lorene Scafaria for ‘Hustlers,’ no Melina Matsoukas for ‘Queen & Slim’ no Marielle Heller for ‘A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.’ Once again, the Oscars nominated five men for best director. #OscarNoms— Ramin Setoodeh (@RaminSetoodeh) January 13, 2020

The Oscars are so white this year the leading nominations are for a movie about a white incel who painted his face even whiter.— David Lo Pun-ch Nazis (@helpmeskeletor) January 13, 2020
I can’t believe Spider-Verse wasn’t nominated just because it came out and won last year. #OscarNoms— Danuary KibblesMMXX (@kibblesmith) January 13, 2020
Not taking away Brad Pitts and Leonardo DiCaprio performance but I would of rather replaced them with Robert Pattinson and William Dafoe for leading and supporting actors! They went ape shit!! #OscarNoms #Oscars pic.twitter.com/B6XdEVpvaU— Jeremy Rodriguez (@RealJeremyRod) January 14, 2020
I love women, women directors, and loved Gerwig’s Little Women. I don’t know what you have to do around Hollywood to get a gal a directing Oscar nom, but it seems having a movie that is better than others nominated doesn’t seem to do the trick. Maybe if she were Greg Gerwig.— A. N. Devers (@andevers) January 13, 2020
i seem to be having an allergic reaction to the nominees— David Sims (@davidlsims) January 13, 2020
NOT THAT WE ARE SURPRISED BY THE MEDIOCRITY BUT JUSTICE FOR— Fran Tirado (@fransquishco) January 13, 2020
I’m satisfied with most of the nominations today but the Oscars did this movie dirty and that’s just unacceptable pic.twitter.com/X4BXygYBzG— Diego Coya (@dcoya64) January 13, 2020
The Farewell getting blanked is GARBAGE. I have no joke for this, it’s just so embarrassing, they should be embarrassed— Caroline Darya Framke (@carolineframke) January 13, 2020
There were 104 nomination slots across all categories for narrative features at the #Oscars. 34 different films were nominated. 2/3 of all nominations were multiple nods from a small group of films. In a year this rich with great movies, this is a slew of missed opportunities. pic.twitter.com/cXlBARG3AL— Dan Murrell (@MurrellDan) January 13, 2020
Glad to see American Factory’s Oscar nod for Best Documentary. It’s the kind of story we don’t see often enough and it’s exactly what Michelle and I hope to achieve with Higher Ground. Congrats to the incredible filmmakers and entire team!— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) January 13, 2020
y’all just gonna forget hustlers happened?!!?!??!? #OscarNoms— Candice Frederick (@ReelTalker) January 13, 2020
