Oscar nomination list: obvious snubs.

For this year's nomination list, the movie The Shape of Water is taking the lead, bagging 13 nominations. Other movies at the top of the list include Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Dunkirk, Darkest Hour, Get Out, and Phantom Thread.

Of course, it was a total shock that Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman didn't make the cut despite its box office success. Armie Hammer wasn't nominated for Call Me By Your Name and this has left a lot of fans very unhappy.

The animated movie The Boss Baby only got one nomination despite its huge success.

Tiffany's pronunciation mistake.

Most fans are not happy that some of the movies they expected to see on the list didn't make the cut, but what's got people talking is Tiffany's mispronunciation of some of the nominees' names.
