Despite all these winners, there were many snubs. The Irishman and Jojo Rabbit won absolutely no awards (even though they got shout outs throughout the night). Marriage Story only won Best Supporting Actress (Laura Dern) despite having two powerhouse performances, a wonderful screenplay, and a wonderful directing job by Noah Baumbach. Meryl Streep did not win best supporting actress in a television series despite giving an absolutely amazing scene stealing performance in Big Little Lies. Also, there was one surprise: in the Best Animated Movie category there was the tear jerking conclusion to the Toy Story series, the game changing animation of the new The Lion King, and the emotional conclusion to the How To Train Your Dragon series, and The Missing Link came out of nowhere and won.
