"A Star Is Born" and "Black Panther" have both picked up a handful of prestigious nominations, including for best picture, but both Bradley Cooper and Ryan Coogler were passed over for directing nominations.

The presumed documentary front-runner "Won't You Be My Neighbor?" also came up empty-handed Tuesday, as did the long-shot indie "Eighth Grade" and "Mary Poppins Returns" star Emily Blunt.
