"Mary Poppins Returns" receives four Oscar nominations

The Academy Award nominations were announced this morning, and Mary Poppins Returns received four nominations:

Best Original Song ("The Place Where Lost Things Go")
Best Original Score
Production Design
Costume Design

Sadly, no nod for Emily Blunt, as my predicted five all got in over her for Actress in a Leading Role. While not super surprising, I was disappointed that Timothée Chalamet didn't make the cut in Supporting Actor (Sam Rockwell snuck in, as I had predicted might be the case). 

The other two acting categories had big surprise nominees for me. Willem Dafoe was nominated in Lead Actor for At Eternity's Gate, while in probably the biggest shocker, Roma's Marina de Tavira made the cut in Supporting Actress.

The full list of nominees can be seen here.

The Oscars ceremony will be held Sunday, Feb 24 on ABC.
