The wait has come to an end! Those nominated for Oscars 2024 were revealed by the Hollywood Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences this Tuesday (23). The award ceremony will take place on March 10, in Los Angeles.

As happens every year, some highly rated names and productions were left out, adding to the list of Oscar snubs.

One of the most felt absences was that of the film ‘Barbie‘, which was not nominated in some of the main categories.

Check out the list of the great ‘forgotten’ Oscars 2024 below.

The highest-grossing film of 2023 received eight Oscar 2024 nominations, but some absences caught the public’s attention.

Despite the surprise that America Ferrera was nominated for Best Supporting Actress, the protagonist Margot Robbie was snubbed from the Best Actress category.

Her nomination was highly anticipated, especially because the actress had been mentioned in previous awards, such as the SAG (actors’ union award) and which is a big barometer for the Oscars.

‘Barbie’ It was also forgotten in the Best Director category, with the absence of Greta Gerwig, and also in the Photography category, despite the great work done by Rodrigo Prieto.

Willem Dafoe, for ‘Poor Creatures’

Willem Dafoe’s absence from the Best Actor nominees was greatly felt. He is the person who gives life to the character Dr. Frankenstein in the film ‘Poor Creatures’.

Despite the work being praised and well received by critics, the performance was not awarded a nomination.

Leonardo DiCaprio, for ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’

It is worth remembering that DiCaprio had been nominated for other awards, such as the Critics Choice Awards. This time, however, Hollywood’s darling is on the Oscar 2024 snubs list.

Charles Melton, for ‘Secrets of a Scandal’

Another highly praised name of the season was actor Charles Melton. His great performance, alongside Natalie Portman and Juliane Moore, in ‘Secrets of a Scandal’, was tipped for an Oscar nomination.

His name was remembered by the Critics Choice Awards, but the Hollywood Academy did not honor him with a nomination in the Best Supporting Actor category.

The anime ‘Suzume’

Despite the indication prior to the Annie Awardswhich is considered the Oscar of animation, the anime ‘Suzume’, created by Makoto Shinkai, was forgotten by the Hollywood Academy.

Expectations were high surrounding his presence among the nominees.

The anime combines disaster film characteristics with young love. It draws attention to how well the techniques were executed and the narrative reached a special depth.

All these aspects, however, were not enough.
