So, how do I sum this up? What a crazy bunch of nominees. And what a long list of snubs! So, let's get this over with:
No Finding Dory: While I have shown my particular dislike towards the PIXAR sequel, it is rather interesting that it didn't get a nomination. We'll let the OSCARS, BAFTAS, and ANNIES (Animation awards) judge this...
No Sully: While this isn't too surprising, Clint Eastwood's Miracle on the Hudson biopic didn't score any nominations whatsoever. I have a feeling that the SAGs will show it some love...
No Millie Bobby Brown: Despite being one of my wildcard picks for Supporting TV Actress, she didn't show up. However, Wionna Ryder and the show did get some love.
A lack of sci-fi: The space program-centric drama Hidden Figures got two nominations, but got excluded from Best Picture. Similarly, Arrival had to deal with the same thing, but it did get a nomination for Amy Adams, solidifing her OSCAR chances.
Sing snatches two: In one of the most interesting twists this season, Illumination's jukebox animated dramedy got nominations for Animated Feature and Original Song for "Faith". Looks like we have a challenger. And speaking of animation....
Deadpool?: Ryan Reynolds' raunchy superhero comedy earned two nominations for Actor (Musical/Comedy) and Best Picture (Musical/Comedy), one for Ryan Reynolds, who could upset frontrunner Ryan Gosling for LA LA LAND.
A Lack of Thrones: While Game of Thrones got a Supporting Actress nomination in addition to its Drama Series nod, it missed out in several other categories. What happened here?
MR. ROBOT and ORPHAN BLACK: Gone without a trace, the cyberthriller show MR. ROBOT failed to add a Drama Series nod in addition to its acting nods for Rami Malek and Christian Slater, while Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany failed to get a nod for herself in TV Drama Actress.
If the SAG nods are as crazy as this, count me in!
