    Not that anyone expected it, but as many probably know, Wonder Woman didn't get any Oscar nods.

    Which I expected, really. Dunno why there are some saying the film got snubbed since hey, it's a solid film, but Oscar worthy? Wouldn't say that. Granted, that's one person's opinion to another and I'm sure many would say that the likes of, say, Guardians 2, Doctor Strange or Suicide Squad didn't deserve nods either. But as far as the Academy goes, I honestly don't see a category where Wonder Woman deserved to be.

    I was certainly expecting a nomination in Costume Design category, really surprised that it didn't get one.

    I was expecting a few categories like costume, maybe adapted screenplay, musical score and other technical nominations.

    If the Academy Awards is somewhat political and they snubbed James Franco because of the accusations and because it doesn't go well with the current times and climate, shouldn't they, by that same reasoning, acknowledge more female directors and female-led movies too?

    Sure, if the Academy found said movies to be Oscar-worthy in their eyes. Detroit came and went with little fanfare. There's Lady Bird, which got in. What does Wonder Woman bring to the table that makes it Oscar worthy outside of people merely wanting it to be nominated?

    I'm very glad that Hemming's turrible work on the Amazons costumes was not rewarded. Maybe they'll get a better costumist next time.

    Costuming is the only one that comes to mind, but I can understand there's been stiff competition this year.

    People are going wild on Twitter. I never thought this movie would even sniff a nomination. Can't believe the disappointment?

    I don't get what people were expecting. The Dark Knight got overlooked despite the fact it got major nominations throughout the awards season. Wonder Woman has been overlooked for almost the entire awards season. It's chances were always remote.

    The Oscars has always been political more than anything else.... and in the current climate, a highly grossing movie starring a female and directed by a female... i could have seen WW get a nomination or two on that alone

    They also don't like superhero movies. If they weren't going to pull the trigger for The Dark Knight, and surprisingly also Deadpool last year, they were never going to do it for this. It being a popular female action film that was wonderfully crafted isn't enough for the genre, and we should all just accept that.
