There were plenty of pleasant and unexpected surprises, though, including The Good Place picking up two nominations after being shut out past year, and Elsie Fisher being nominated for Eighth Grade. That leaves the Musical Or Comedy category to the likes of Mary Poppins Returns (where it inarguably belongs), as well as inclusive smash-hit Crazy Rich Asians and comedy-drama Vice. Further adding to the oddness, Eighth Grade's Elsie Fisher was recognized for her performance, but Ethan Hawke got the shaft for his First Reformed turn as an alcoholic priest with a crisis of faith.
The Hulu series based on Margaret Atwood's novel has been an awards darling since the beginning, and even became the first streaming series to win the Golden Globe for best television series in its first year. What will Widows' lack of recognition mean for Viola Davis' Oscar chances? The trendy "Twilight Zone"-inspired drama "Homecoming" scored 3 nominations, for best drama series and for lead actors Julia Roberts (who missed a drama film actress nod for "Ben Is Back") and up-and-comer Stephan James as therapist and patient in a spooky Florida rehab facility". The top categories will be carried live on NBC. A Star Is Born, Green Book, and The Favourite trailed close behind with five nominations each.

Vice topped all contenders on Thursday (Friday NZ Time), in nominations announced at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, including best picture, comedy and best actor nominations for Christian Bale's almost unrecognisable performance as the former vice president. Certainly not over The Sisters Brothers.
The nominees for best animated film were: Incredibles 2, Isle of Dogs, Mirai, Ralph Breaks the Internet and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. But the film and Hawke were left out completely.
