This morning, some stars woke up to a milestone moment: an Oscar nomination.

In honor of the 2020 Oscars in February, the nominations were announced bright and early on Monday. Insecure's Issa Rae and Searching's John Cho did the honors of announcing the highly anticipated list of contenders this year—and, as to be expected, it was packed with stars. 

Of course, as is the case every year, among the industry veterans and newcomers alike who received an Academy Award nod (or several), others unexpectedly did not. And, while some anticipated names did not ultimately make the cut, others surprisingly did. 

Not to fret—E! News is breaking down all the snubs and surprises so you're ready for the big night next month. 

But, before you keep scrolling, make sure to mark your calendar because the 2020 Academy Awards air on ABC on Feb. 9.

The Rocketman star won a Golden Globe for his performance in the musical biopic, but was completely missing from the list of Oscar nominees this year.

Like Taron Egerton, the Farewell star won a Golden Globe this year for her performance, but was shut out of the Oscars nominations as was the film itself. 

SNUB: Eddie Murphy

The Golden Globe nominee for Dolemite Is My Name was noticeably missing from the list of 2020 Oscars contenders.

While the former Oscar nominee was acknowledged with a nomination for the adapted screenplay of Little Women, she was snubbed for directing while the film itself was nominated for Best Picture. 

SURPRISE: Florence Pugh

The new Vogue cover star and Little Women actress is celebrating another major moment in her breakout career with her first Oscar nomination. 

SNUB: Jennifer Lopez

After Golden Globe and SAG Award nominations for Jennifer Lopez in Hustlers, it was a big shock when she did not receive an Oscar nomination.
