No Lady Gaga?

Tuesday’s Oscar nominations highlighted many of the greatest film performances of 2021, with “The Power of the Dog” leading the pack with 12 nominations, and director Jane Campion making history as the first woman to be nominated for best director twice.

It’s an impressive list of nominees. Until you look at the powerhouse performances NOT on the list. Then it’s like, “What?”

The very nature of the imperfect awards competition means seminal performances, movies, and songs are annually left off the final Oscar ballot. But this crop of overlooked nominees are especially noticeable in this pandemic-affected awards season where great movies lacked audience oxygen and momentum shifts were even more unpredictable.

Here are the top contenders who sadly missed out, and who will not be vying for Oscar glory on March 27.

Snubbed! Ben Affleck, Jennifer Hudson, Lady Gaga, Leonardo DiCaprio miss out on Oscar nominations

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga, 35, was a high profile front-runner for a best actress nomination for her role as Patrizia Reggiani in “House of Gucci” right up until Oscar nominations morning. However, the Oscar-winner for best song in “A Star Is Born” was not announced in the best actress category.

Ben Affleck

Ben Affleck, 49, was in awards contention for two roles, supporting actor for director George Clooney’s “The Tender Bar” and as a haughty French baron in director Ridley Scott’s “The Last Duel.” But Affleck, 49, was shut out from both categories.

Leonardo DiCaprio

The A-lister is at his most academically unglamorous as the comet-impact-warning Dr. Randall Mindy in “Don’t Look Up,” writer-director Adam McKay’s polarizing statement film on global warming. Despite earning a Golden Globe and British Academy Film Awards nominations for the role, Leonardo DiCaprio, 47, who won his best actor statute for “The Revenant” in 2016, missed out on his seventh acting Oscar nomination.

Jennifer Hudson

At 25, Jennifer Hudson became the youngest Black woman to win an acting Oscar for her stunning movie debut as Effie White in 2006’s “Dreamgirls.” Hudson was the hand-chosen pick of Aretha Franklin to play the Queen of Soul in her biopic “Respect” and her stand-out performance put Hudson, now 40, in the best actress race and in best original song competition “Here I Am (Singing My Way Home). But Hudson couldn’t crack either the best actress nominations or best song.

Rachel Zegler

The brightest light in director Steven Spielberg’s “West Side Story,” 20-year-old Rachel Zegler has exploded into Hollywood in her film debut as Maria Vasquez. The first Latina actress to win a Golden Globe award for best actress Zegler was not able to break into the Oscar best actress category. At least not this year.

Snubbed! Ben Affleck, Jennifer Hudson, Lady Gaga, Leonardo DiCaprio miss out on Oscar nominations

Peter Dinklage

The four-time Emmy-winning “Game of Thrones” actor has received glowing reviews as thwarted lover and wordsmith Cyrano de Bergerac in director Joe Wright’s sumptuous, but little-seen “Cyrano.” Dinklage was not able to break into the highly competitive best actor race.

‘House of Gucci’

The awards light has burned brightly on the SAG ensemble “House of Gucci,” nominated cast – Lady Gaga, Jared Leto, Adam Driver, Al Pacino — with Leto and Gago earning individual SAG Award acting nominations. But the Ridley Scott-director drama which everyone and their grandmother is talking about, received mixed-reviews overall. “House of Gucci” couldn’t crack into any of the major acting categories — not for Jared Leto or Lady Gaga — and was denied a best picture nomination.

‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’

With stellar reviews and boffo box office at $1.77 billion worldwide, couldn’t we dream about a best picture nomination for Tom Holland’s “Spider-Man: No Way Home”? Isn’t that why the best picture category was expanded to 10 films, to ensure fan favorite and comic book films like “Joker” and “Black Panther” had a full crack at Oscar love? However, “Spider-Man” swung and missed, though did nab a nomination for best visual effects.

Nicolas Cage

The idea that Nicolas Cage was in a celebrated movie, and even in Oscar discussion, had the makings of a great comeback story in the awards race. The 58-year-old actor earned raves for his “Pig” role as a truffle hunter looking for his beloved, kidnapped pig. But this story ended, sadly, without an Oscar best actor nomination for Cage who took home Oscar in 1996 for “Leaving Las Vegas.”

Bradley Cooper

Bradley Cooper returned to the awards race with vigor after leading his directorial debut, 2018’s “A Star Is Born” to eight Oscar nominations. Cooper was the beating, dark heart in the center of Guillermo del Toro’s “Nightmare Alley” and went full-tilt crazy in a movie-stealing supporting role as producer Jon Peters in “Licorice Pizza.” Cooper was denied a nomination in both categories, though scored a best picture nom as a producer on “Alley.”

Jared Leto

Even for a lightning rod performer like Jared Leto, his latex-enhanced, hammy performance as Paolo Gucci in “House of Gucci” epitomized a polarizing film performance. Lauded with a SAG best supporting actor nomination in January, Leto earned an unwanted Razzie Award nomination for the same role this week. The “Dallas Buyers Club” Oscar winner missed out on a best supporting actor nomination for the second year in a row after being denied for last year’s “The Little Things” following a surprise awards run.

Marlee Matlin

After insisting on acting alongside deaf actors in the celebrated “CODA,” a comedic drama centered around a singing Child of Deaf Adults, Matlin has earned raves for her performance as coolest mother ever Jackie Rossi. But, the first deaf actor to win an Academy Award for 1987’s “Children of a Lesser God” did not receive a nomination for the 2022 Oscar best supporting actress race.

Rita Moreno

Rita Moreno returned to the movie that brought her to Oscar glory, “West Side Story.” Her role as Anita in the 1961 original musical was a landmark victory, making her the first Hispanic woman to win an Oscar. The Puerto Rican-born legend, 90, has gone on to earn the rare E.G.O.T. – with additional Emmy, Grammy and Tony wins. However, Moreno could not earn a second “West Side Story” nomination with her new role as drugstore owner Valentina in Steven Spielberg’s celebrated remake.
