In a sneak peek of Monday’s The Ellen Show the star talked about her nomination and then focused on who didn't get nominated. According to the Wall Street Journal on Thursday there were plenty of stars who were snubbed by the Oscars this year.

“There was so many performances that were great. I am thinking of my friend, Emma Thompson who wasn't nominated,” said Meryl Streep on The Ellen Show. The category she was nominated for this year was so full of talented people and few epic performances were left off the list. “I was really shocked.”
