The rollercoaster of the 2019 awards season continued Tuesday with a batch of Oscar nominations that few could have predicted. Sure, there were some shoo-ins that made it, like "Black Panther" breaking the superhero best picture barrier, and "A Star Is Born," ''The Favourite" and "Roma" being among the leading nominees. And yet, there were more than a handful of downright stupefying exclusions, including Bradley Cooper and Ryan Coogler for director (or any woman, for that matter), Emily Blunt for actress, "Eighth Grade" and the Fred Rogers documentary "Won't You Be My Neighbor?"
