But the contentious revenge drama Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri also emerged as a very strong contender, receiving nine Oscar nominations, including one for best picture.

The Gal Gadot superhero film, which became a lightning rod previous year for female empowerment, was completely left off the nomination list. For instance, the honest poster for Call Me By Your Name references to peach scene that had many people talking, while the poster for Three Billboards calls attention to the film's "dubious racial politics".

On the flip-side, of course, some films that were thought to be out of contention have racked up multiple awards. They're honored just to be nominated, it's such great recognition, what a fine group of actors to share this honor with, etc., etc.
