It’s that time of year: Oscar season. While tons of great movies received nominations, there are a few that we think should have made the cut but didn’t.

Below, we share five films that should’ve received a nomination:


Though controversial, Jennifer Lawrence was incredible in this movie. She does a complete turn-around from what we’re used to in this abstract film about a couple whose peaceful life is interrupted by a strange couple.

Wonder Woman

When this movie came out, there was so much buzz around it, we thought it was a shoe-in for a nomination — whether it was for Best Picture or Best Actress. We can only hope that the next installment makes the cut!

Logan Lucky

It’s not that much of a surprise that this didn’t get nominated (how often do we see heist movies get nominated anyway?) — but it still totally should have been.

Lady Macbeth

Ah, unrequited love. Lady Macbeth is a passionate tale about a woman trapped in a marriage with an older man who starts a love affair with a man her age. Not only is it a wonderful movie, but the cinematography is also amazing.

Battle of the Sexes

Based on the most-watched televised sports event of all time (aka the 1973 tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs), we’re not sure why this one didn’t get any nominations. With Emma Stone and Steve Carell as the stars, we thought this movie would receive more recognition.
