The snub of "Arrival" star Amy Adams stood out among the largely predictable Academy Award nominations that were revealed Tuesday morning. Here are the people and films nominated in some of the top categories.

Actress in a Leading Role

  • Isabelle Huppert, "Elle"
  • Ruth Negga, "Loving"
  • Natalie Portman, "Jackie"
  • Emma Stone, "La La Land"
  • Meryl Streep, "Florence Foster Jenkins"

Notably absent is Adams, who some thought was snubbed for her work in "Arrival."

The omission was especially glaring, as "Arrival" was nominated for eight Oscars.

Some Twitter users were not amused.

Many fans felt Adams was more deserving than Streep this time around.

But for the most part, other categories yielded expected results, including a record-tying 14 nominations for "La La Land."
