Sassy Oscar nominations reactions from our forums: From ‘They snubbed Timmy!’ to ‘Marina de Tavira yeeeees!’

Over the past 91 years the Oscars have learned that it’s impossible to please everybody, and this year is no exception. Gold Derby readers, some of whom are industry insiders who hide behind cyber handles, have been busy all day discussing the 2019 Oscar nominations. As expected, some users are furious over the many head-scratching snubs (like Timothee Chalamet for “Beautiful Boy”) while others are elated about the pleasant surprises (like Marina de Tavira for “Roma”). Below, see a sampling of comments from our sassy forum posters and then be sure to join the discussion to have YOUR say.
