The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced nominations for the 95th Academy Awards on Tuesday, Jan. 24, and there were moments of pure delight and some major disappointments. People like Viola Davis and Danielle Deadwyler were snubbed in the Best Actress category, while James Cameron got no love for his groundbreaking directing on Avatar: The Way of Water. Top Gun: Maverick got more love than expected, and Marvel received its first acting nomination thanks to the incredible talents of the one and only, Angela Bassett, for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
Everything Everywhere All at Once is leading the charge with 11 nominations—which is a surprise to no one who has seen it—but it is still admirable to see the film become a darling this awards season. Some talent was recognized for the first time by the Academy this year, including Rihanna, Brian Tyree Henry, and Ana de Armas. Check out our key takeaways from the nominations below before the ceremony, which will take place on March 12 at 8 p.m.
