The 2019 Oscar Nominations Have Been Announced, And None For Bradley Cooper For Director!

January 22, 2019 / Posted by:

That face isn’t only the face that Bradley Cooper made after hearing Lady Gaga dribble out that “one hundred people in the room” line. It’s also the face that Bradley Cooper is probably making this morning after learning that the Academy doesn’t appreciate his masterful directing skills. There can be one hundred directors on the ballot, and one isn’t going to get a nom, and that’s Bradley Cooper.

Kumail Nanjiani and Tracee Ellis Ross announced the Oscar noms at the hour of the ungodly this morning, and highly-esteemed film director Bradley Cooper, Timothee Chalamet, John David Washington, and Ethan Hawke are all sobbing onto each other’s bosoms, because all of them were snubbed! (If your kink is picturing B. Coop, Timothee, JDW, and Ethan sobbing onto each other’s bosoms, you’re a freak, but unlike them, it’s your lucky day.)

Bradley Cooper did get a Best Actor nom for A Star Is Born, but was shut out of the Best Director category. So when he wakes up in the morning, he can no longer look in the mirror and say, “Champ, you’re the Clint Eastwood of your time.” Timothee Chalamet didn’t get A Best Supporting Actor nom for Beautiful Boy, John David Washington was left out of Best Actor for BlacKkKlansman, and Ethan Hawke also didn’t get into Best Actor for First Reformed. Other snubs include If Beale Street Could Talk not making it into Best Picture, Won’t You Be My Neighbor? not getting a Best Documentary Feature nom (may the voters eat Lucifer’s dirty ass in HELL for that), and Emily Blunt getting nothing for Mary Poppins Returns and A Quiet Place.  And I hope Olivia from Widows had a big Taco Bell breakfast, because she’s going to need to make enough caca to shit on the doorstep of every voter who wrongly snubbed her. I’ll drive the getaway car, Olivia!

The noms pretty much went the way that I (and everyone else who cares about predicting this shit) thought they would go, although there were a few nominations that surprised me like a Grindr trick who actually shows up and looks like his picture. Like Marina de Tavira in Best Supporting Actress for Roma, and Willem Dafoe in Best Actor for At Eternity’s Gate, and Pawel Pawlikowski in Best Director for Cold War, and maybe Yalitza Aparicio in Best Actress for Roma (although, many guessed she would get in).

The Favourite and Roma tied with the most nominations with 10 each, and Vice and A Star Is Born tied for the second most with 8 each. Black Panther got 7 nominations and also became the first superhero movie in history to get a Best Picture nomination. And if you hear the sound of a voice screaming, “Daaaaamn you, Paweeeeeeel,” don’t worry, it’s just Bradley Cooper going through it. Here’s all the nominations:
