Leading up to the ceremony, Stuhlbarg hadn't been nominated for any other acting awards during the season.

In addition being a supporting player in Call Me by Your Name, Stuhlbarg also appeared in The Shape of Water and The Post.

All three films were nominated for Best Picture, too.

People were hoping Stuhlbarg would be a shoo-in because of his powerfully acted monologue at the end of the film.

If you haven't seen the film, you should go to your nearest theater and remedy that.

Naturally, people didn't take Stuhlbarg's perceived slight well.
