There are a few surprises and snubs. Margot Robbie was not nominated for Best Actress for “Barbie,” despite carrying the whole movie. Her co-stars Ryan Gosling and America Ferrera were nominated, which just adds insult to injury. Greta Gerwig was also not nominated for Best Director. The field is traditionally and maddeningly dominated by men, but one woman, Justine Triet, did get nominated this year. Bradley Cooper snagged the acting nod for “Maestro,” but was passed over again for directing, similar to what happened in 2018’s “A Star is Born.” Leonardo di Caprio was also snubbed, not receiving a nomination for Best Actor for “Killers of the Flower Moon.” Finally, “The Color Purple” only received one nomination in the Supporting Actress category. The original 1985 film was nominated 11 times!

Movie’s biggest night is set for March 10 and will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.
