Fans had hoped the moving Cambodian drama would get a surprise nomination, as the Cambodian entry – despite the fact it hadn’t been shortlist for the category.

Angelina wasn’t the only one to miss out on nominations when they were announced on this morning – James Franco has also been snubbed.

His lack of nods comes just weeks after he was accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women.

The star and director of The Disaster Artist missed out on a best actor nod for his portrayal of The Room’s eccentric filmmaker Tommy Wiseau, despite wins at the Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice Movie Awards.

He was previously nominated at the Oscars in 2011 for 127 Hours and hosted the ceremony with Anne Hathaway in 2011.

While James has denied the allegations made by five women in the Los Angeles Times, it is possible they derailed his chances of a nomination, in which Darkest Hour star Gary Oldman is the perceived front runner.

Academy members had just eight days to vote for the nominations, ending on January 12, shortly after allegations were published in the Los Angeles Times.

The piece was based on interviews with five women, including two who had accused the actor of harassment on Twitter after he won at the Golden Globes on January 7.

James  won at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards but skipped the ceremony after the allegations emerged.

He was nominated at the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday but lost out to Oldman. He attended the star-studded bash but dodged the red carpet.

Michelle Williams has also missed out on a Lead Actress nod for her role in All The Money In The World.

Tom Hanks failed to get a Lead Actor nod for The Post, while Judi Dench’s name was also absent from Lead Actress for Victoria & Abdul.

The Oscars will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on March 4.
