As USA Today reports, Affleck was not the only A-list star who was passed over for Hollywood’s biggest honor. Lady Gaga was not nominated for her starring role in “House of Gucci.” “Breathe if you agree that lady gaga deserved to be nominated as best actress at the #Oscars,” joked one disappointed fan on Twitter.
Like Lady Gaga, Oscar winner Leonardo DiCaprio was not nominated for his movie, “Don’t Look Up” and fellow winner Jennifer Hudson was also snubbed following rave reviews of her performance in “Respect” (via Billboard).
EW notes that A-lister Jared Leto, who won Best Supporting Actor in 2014 for “Dallas Buyers Club,” did not received recognition from the Academy for his role in “House of Gucci.” It’s worth mentioning he did get a Razzie nomination. Meanwhile, Bradley Cooper also failed to secure an Oscar nomination for his supporting turn in “Licorice Pizza.” The actor has called awards “meaningless” in the past, so perhaps he’s not too upset (via Independent)!
