2019's biggest Oscar nomination snubs have inspired the funniest memes
23 January 2019, 17:25
Fans are not happy with some of the snubs in this year's Oscar nominations...
It's official. Awards season is here and we're living for it. Over the past few weeks alone, we've been blessed with everything from Olivia Colman calling Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz her "bitches" at the Golden Globes to those brilliant Lady Gaga "we didn't say that" red carpet memes. Not to mention, we've still got the Grammys, the Brits AND the Oscars to come in February.
And now the Academy Award nominations are finally in. Black Panther just made Oscars history as the first superhero film to be nominated for Best Picture and living legend Regina King just earned her first Academy Award nomination for her role as Sharon Rivers in If Beale Street Could Talk. However, it wouldn't be the Oscars without snubs and there are a couple of big ones.
Check out the funniest 2019 Oscar snub memes below.
Toni Colette was robbed of a Best Actress nomination for her performance in Hereditary, Timothée Chalamet missed out on a Best Actor nomination for Beautiful Boy and Bradley Cooper didn't get a Best Director nomination for A Star Is Born. Not to mention, Widows, Crazy Rich Asians, Sorry to Bother You and Eighth Grade were all ignored in spite of critical acclaim.
With that in mind, here are just a few of the funniest reactions and memes to this year's Oscar snubs.
Some people have taken matters into their own hands.

A for effort.
Timothée Chalamet hive is not messing around.

Why is this accurate?
At least fans are offering support.

Now can we talk about Toni Colette?
Toni Collette didn’t get terrorized by a satan worshipping cult and cut off her own head in Hereditary just to be snubbed by every major awards group this season!!!— jon (@prasejeebus) January 22, 2019
Points were made.
Let's change this.

It can't be that hard, right?
Also we need this to happen.
During the Best Actress category this year, it'd be a fun cameo to see Toni Collette in full Hereditary mode climbing up the walls and hiding on the ceiling.— Louis Virtel (@louisvirtel) January 22, 2019
A moment of silence for Bradley Cooper.
Or a moment of screaming.
We wonder how he reacted.

...or Sorry to Bother You?
So Sorry To Bother You didn’t get nominated for...anything? Not for editing or writing or Tessa Thompson’s earings?— Matt Kessler, America's Sweetheart (@MattBodega) January 22, 2019
This film snapped.
Let's discuss Eighth Grade too.

Unfortunately great art often goes unrewarded...
The biggest Oscar snub in history is Destiny’s Child’s “Independent Women” from the Charlie’s Angels soundtrack not being nominated for best song.— Chris Hanna (@Chris_Hanna) January 22, 2019
I don't know a better song.
...and sometimes art is just ahead of its time.
No nominations. Maybe it was too ahead of its time for certain people. pic.twitter.com/Y0PRGcvaLd— Sam Prance (@samprance) January 22, 2019
If you know, you know.
