So keep trying to figure out how PTA didn't receive a director nomination. Then try to figure out why he didn't receive a screenplay nomination. Then try to figure out why it didn't receive a cinematography nomination. Then try to figure out why it didn't receive a nomination for its score. Then try to figure out why Phoenix and Hoffman aren't the favorites to win in their individual categories.
I can explain why Phoenix isn't the favourite, but that has nothing to do with his performance in the movie.
