Despite the sunny lightheartedness of hosts Kumail Nanjiani and Tracey Ellis Ross, the announcement of the nominations for the 91st Academy Awards was filled with shocking omissions and inclusions — some in so-called lesser categories were downright earthquaking, and in the major categories still stunning.
