The 2015 Oscar nominations are here, and there are already a TON of feelings circulating about the noms. As for the biggies this year, Birdman and The Grand Budapest Hotel each received nine nominations, and the other heavy front-runner is Boyhood (The Imitation Game is up there too). As we sort through the noms there are a few big YAY moments: Emma Stone got a Best Supporting Actress nomination for Birdman (YAY), Reese Witherspoon is on the Best Actress list (YAY), Benedict Cumberbatch is nominated as well (YAY), Marion Cotillard got a nom for a movie she really didn’t even campaign for (YAY), and there are some seriously-worthy female directors on the Best Documentary Feature and Best Documentary Short Subject lists. It’s always important to start with the good.

Now for the bad moments? The UGH moments? Ava DuVernay did NOT get a Best Director nomination for Selma, the list of nominees is remarkably un-diverse (it will be the whitest show since 1998, and all 20 of the acting nominees are white), Jennifer Aniston got a total Cake snub, and there are ZERO female nominees in the writing, directing, or cinematography categories. To anyone who says diversity is on the upswing in Hollywood, we still have a long way to go.

More to come for certain, but for now here’s the list of nominees. Oscar season is officially in gear.
