‘Crazy Rich Asians’ Got Completely Snubbed by the Oscars and Fans are Not Having It

“Crazy Rich Asians” is nowhere on the list of the official nominees for the 91st Academy Awards, leaving fans incredibly disappointed.

The Warner Bros. rom-com, which made Hollywood history and swept box office records last summer, was pegged for multiple nominations but ultimately failed to snag even one.

 

Hopes were up that the Jon M. Chu film would be nominated for Best Picture and major acting categories, as well as costume and production designs.

Many particularly eyed Michelle Yeoh as Best Supporting Actress for her performance as Eleanor Young, the domineering mother of Henry Golding’s Nick Young and consequently the obstacle to Constance Wu’s Rachel Chu.

“Crazy Rich Asians” received multiple nominations at the Critics’ Choice Awards, where it won Best Comedy; two nominations at the Golden Globes, namely Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy and Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical (Constance Wu); and an Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture nomination at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, which takes place on Jan. 27, to name a few.

That being said, the Oscars snub left many fans disappointed, many of whom took to Twitter to express their feelings:

Netflix’s “Roma” and “The Favourite” lead the 2019 Oscars with 10 nominations each. Awards night happens at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on Feb. 25.
