‘Wonder Woman’ stumbles; Spielberg, Hanks skipped at Oscar nods

Featuring Gal Gadot as the sword-wielding Wonder Woman, the movie was the first stand-alone female superhero film since 2005 and earned some $825 million globally, making its filmmaker Patty Jenkins the highest-grossing female director in Hollywood.

But at Tuesday’s Oscar nominations, Jenkins was left off the director’s race and the film was snubbed in the best picture category.

James Franco was excluded from the best actor race for “The Disaster Artist” after facing accusations of sexual misconduct earlier this month following his Golden Globe win. Franco said the accusations were “not accurate.”

“The Disaster Artist,” a comedy about the ‘worst Hollywood film ever made,’ received early awards attention but on Tuesday, only landed one Oscar nomination, for adapted screenplay.

Other snubs included Steven Spielberg in the directing race for press freedom movie “The Post,” and its star Tom Hanks.

German film “In The Fade,” which won the Golden Globe for best foreign language film and received praise for its lead star Diane Kruger, was left out of the Oscar foreign language race. Neither Kruger or the film’s director Fatih Akin garnered a nod.

The Oscars will be handed out on March 04.
