Though the Critics' Choice Awards nominations went mostly as expected, there were some notable stars and red-hot awards contenders missing from the list released Monday (Dec. 14). "The Hateful Eight," "Steve Jobs" and "Joy" were snubbed for Best Picture despite that category having 10 nominees. "Joy" also missed out on Best Director and Best Original Screenplay bids, though Jennifer Lawrence made the cut for Best Actress.

Critics' Choice Awards nominations:
'Mad Max' leads with 13; 'Carol,' 'The Martian' & 'The Revenant' at 9 each

After being snubbed by the SAG Awards and Golden Globes last week, Michael Keaton is once again missing from the Best Supporting Actor lineup though his "Spotlight" co-star Mark Ruffalo broke through this time.

However, Idris Elba ("Beasts of No Nation"), who has been consistently nominated on the awards circuit thus far (including Globes, SAG and Indie Spirits), was also left out. Jane Fonda, a Golden Globes contender for "Youth," is absent here as she was in the SAG nominations.

  1. Agreed, Gold derby has egg on their face. They created this perfect picture for Joy for months, even having them high in key categories, and it’s proven to be extremely overhyped. Looks like it’s just Lawrence and that’s it. Another funny thing is the experts here always mention a movie’s strength on Rotten Tomatoes, and no mention of how Joy’s doing there. It’s straddling fresh and rotten as of right now it holds 58%

  2. you GOLDDERBY pieces of shit….I agree with my previous commentors..you guys are just a bunch of cock suckers predicting like us…even i can predict the nominations from home jerking off to porn….wtf are you guys doing staying LA area are sucking all the film makers cocks by attending lucheons and stuff..this is what your logic comes down to ????? december release and little lesss complex movies means oscar ? wtf losers

  3. YOU BASTERDS HAVE 10 MOVIES AND WHICH EVER DIDNT GET NOMINATED FOR A CATEGORY Y THOSE ARE SNUBS ?? THE OTHERS ARE SNUBS IN SOMEOTHER CATEGORIES?? WHILE WE ARE AT IT WHERE THE FUCK IS THE BIG SHORT IN YOUR SNUBS LIST ???? ITS A FAR MORE INTERESTING MOVIE AND MORE PEOPLE NEED TO SEE IT…WHO THE FUCK CARES ABOUT THE REVENANT ?? HOW IS IT HELPFUL TO AUDIENCE…YOU MOTHER FUCKING FAGS

  4. Wow, really no need for such a racist vulgar diatribe, I have issues with how and why these guys get behind their picks, but they don’t deserve to have a rant like that. Extremely Uncalled For

  5. I get Idris Elba and Michael Keaton (Not so much Jane Fonda as “Youth” because she hasn’t been a present actress in film that much) but “Joy”? Really? It’s ironic but the story about the miracle mop is being called a mess of a film. The reviews I’ve seen, the only ones who seem to be liking it are fans of Russell’s previous films but the fact Russell got a director nomination at all when one of the main concerns was the story flow shows there were still some bribes going on. Fact is, if it were up to me, “Joy” wouldn’t get anything. It’s a mediocre film at best and they are just Meryl Streeping Jennifer Lawrence at this point. She’s barely been in the game (Barely 10 years) and they are ready to award her nominations out of nowhere. It’s cheap. And plus I find it a little funny that the movie that’s completely about her is bad but they call her transcendent in the film. I mean if you’re character focus isn’t serving the story than how is that a good performance? Oh well. Fact is if they give it to anyone but Brie Larson (Whose just been it) it’s going to be tantamount to garbage bribing. It’s pathetic Lawrence shows up at the last minute to grab some spotlight but wouldn’t compete during the whole award season (Note how the Screen Actors Guild didn’t nominate her). I will say this though, whoever is Russell’s cinematographer…he’s the only one I can ever give praise too. His camera work is great, the rest of the Russell’s films are tantamount to Lifetime movies half the time. I apologize for the bashing, it’s just an opinion.

  6. DANIEL MONTGOMERY YOU BROWN MOTHER FUCKING COCK SUCKER……SUCK MY COCK…FAGGOT….CHRISTIAN BALE IS NOMINATED FOR OTHER AWARDS AND HAS THE BEST SHOT AT GETTING NOMINATED.WHO THE FUCK U THINK U ARE BASTERD,SUCK MY DICK….CUNT..BITCH…I WILL JIZZ ON UR FACE….BASTERD
