Todd Haynes also missed out as best Director, which went to Alejandro G. Iñárritu, for The Revenant.

Based on the Patricia Highsmith novel The Price of Salt, the film follows Mara and Blanchett’s characters’ relationship. The film shows that the women must make sacrifices in order to be together.

The film has been critically acclaimed, but earlier this month, the ABC network said it would not run a trailer for the film Carol during the Superbowl unless a lesbian love scene was edited out.
