Below is the synopsis of "Girls Trip," per IMDB.

When four lifelong friends travel to New Orleans for the annual Essence Festival, sisterhoods are rekindled, wild sides are rediscovered, and there's enough dancing, drinking, brawling, and romancing to make the Big Easy blush.

"Girls Trip" is a great film with a great cast, but Haddish stole the show [fo sho]. Haddish plays Dina, the wildest and most raunchy member of the Flossy Posse. Fans were hoping the Oscars would recognize Haddish for her breakthrough role—even following the Golden Globe and SAG award snubs. Like the Melissa McCarthy in "Bridesmaids," folks thought it was possible. But ultimately, it didn't happen. 

Haddish announced the nominees with Andy Serkis, but fans felt bad for her having to watch Serkis announce the nominees while her name wasn't called for Best Supporting Actress. Oscars are aiming to be more progressive, and there are some nice surprises this year. But what's the point without Haddish—the breakout actress of 2017? 

In reference to Haddish' performance, Rolling Stone's Peter Travers wrote:

And get ready for Haddish – a Category 5 hurricane of laughs – who turns wild child Dina into a catalyst for raunch unleashed. To hear Haddish explain the meaning of "grapefruiting" … you'll never get that out of your head.

Below is the synopsis of "Call Me by Your Name," per IMDB.

In Northern Italy in 1983, seventeen year-old Elio begins a relationship with visiting Oliver, his father's research assistant, with whom he bonds over his emerging sexuality, their Jewish heritage, and the beguiling Italian landscape.

Hammer has been on the come up for years, starring in strong and dramatic supporting parts in a number of acclaimed films. 2018 seemed like his year to be recognized as an Oscar contender. 

Hammer starred in one of the most important films of 2017, "Call Me by Your Name," playing a research assistant who has builds a strong bond with the son of his boss. Hammer may have felt like a shoe-in, but like every year, some "easy" contenders are harshly snubbed. Sigh. It sucks because the chemistry between Hammer and Timothée Chalamet is said to be mesmerizing. MLive's John Serba writes:

Hammer is bold and charming, while Chalamet is a reticent powerhouse, a revelation as a teen who’s superficially sullen but, in his heart, raw and fearless, ripe for a new and authentic experience.
