‘Wonder Woman’ Fans React To Oscar Nomination Snubs On The Internet

Nominees for the 90th Academy Awards were announced this morning and many were stunned that Wonder Woman did not receive a single nomination. Now, fans have taken to the internet to express their disappointment and outrage over the fact that Wonder Woman has been completely shut out from this year’s Oscar nominations.

Wonder Woman received critical acclaim and broke box office records throughout the year, inspiring audiences and changing the game for female-led filmmaking. Many were hoping that groundbreaking success would result in Wonder Woman being recognized at the Academy Awards in major categories including Best Picture and Best Director for Patty Jenkins. Today, the nominees for this year’s Oscars were announced and the acclaimed DC film did receive any nominations, even in technical categories where blockbuster films are more commonly recognized. Fan reactions ranged from disappointed to angry, though many pointed out that the Oscar snubs will not take away from the cultural and social impact of Wonder Woman.

Patty Jenkins will return to direct, co-write and produce the Wonder Woman sequel with The Expendables co-writer Dave Callaham signed on to pen the film based on a treatment by Jenkins and DC creative chief officer Geoff Johns.

Plot details for the Wonder Woman sequel are currently under wraps, though the film is set to follow the Amazonian Princess during the Cold War as she faces off against the Soviet Union in the 1980s. Wonder Woman 2 is currently scheduled to be released in theaters on November 1, 2019.

Hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, the 90th Academy Awards will be held at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood and Highland Center on Sunday, March 4, 2018. The ceremony will be televised live on ABC.
