It's a rather sad day for Marvel fans as Avengers: Endgame got royally snubbed at the Oscar 2020 nominations. The list of probable winners in 25 different categories was announced today by John Cho of Star Trek Beyond and Issa Rae of Insecure and while DC's Joker managed to bag quite a few nods in multiple categories, the team of Avengers: Endgame had to go home disappointed. Though Academy Awards are known for ignoring the superhero movies, the case is here is slightly more hurtful as Joaquin Phoenix's release was able to get their approval while Marvel's offering had to struggle big time. Oscar Nominations 2020 Full List: The Irishman, Parasite and Jojo Rabbit Dominate Different Categories While Avengers: Endgame Gets the Royal Snub.
Marvel fans are clearly super pissed and irritated with the kind of 'attention' the academy showered on Avengers: Endgame. Marvel's biggest superhero saga managed to bag just one nomination in the Best Visual Effects category and such a low number was not really predicted. Anyways, moving on, let's see how upset fans are expressing their disapproval and anger on Twitter after Endgame lost the nominations race.

Yup, makes sense!

Do you Believe This?
Ok. I hate theories like this but I can’t help feeling there was a campaign against an #AvengersEndgame #OscarNom for Best Picture by certain influential directors because “it’s not cinema,” despite being a game-changer. They didn’t even nominate ten movies! #Oscars2020 #Oscars

One's Enough if we Win it!
If #AvengersEndgame doesn't win Best Visual Effects I'm rioting...

It Hurts! We Know...
#AvengersEndgame is the BIGGEST film of all-time and #Hollywood awards season ignores it. It's things like this that turn people away. Just like when Hollywood snubbed the 1st 2 films of the #lordoftherings trilogy. The 1st of which is, by far, film industry's GOAT. pic.twitter.com/GdrBLugHXL

And a couple more!
Look, all jokes aside, the one thing I truly think #AvengersEndgame deserved an Oscar nomination (Just the NOM) was for Directing.

While Avengers: Endgame managed to beat the likes of 1917 in the Best Picture Category at Critics' Choice Awards, its snubbing at Oscars is truly heartbreaking. Is it just us or are you all imagining Martin Scorsese beaming from ear to ear right now?
