    2013: Daniel Bruhl (“Rush”), Tom Hanks (“Captain Phillips”), Emma Thompson (“Saving Mr. Banks”)

    Any thoughts on why you guys think they should’ve been nominated that year?

    I think there might be a forum like this already but…

    Mila Kunis should have not been nominated for anything. She just basically showed up in the film and got rewarded. Barbara Hershey was the best supporting actress of that movie imo. Pam Grier was the “Best Actress” of 1997. Sorry Holly and Kate. Pam’s performance was one of my favorite for the 90s. I hate talking about that film because I though the movie ws snubbed as well.

    It was an awful omission, and it seems even more horrible looking back. I also felt that Robert Forster gave a ‘better’ performance than anybody he was nominated with, including the winner. A win for Burt would have been great imo, but he wasnt more deserving than Forster.
    Same goes for Quentin Tarantino. I would have removed Gus Van Sant in a blink and replaced him with Quentin.

    I’m beginning to understand what you mean about hating to talk about that film. I’m getting hot around the collar. Lol.

    Yeah Mila Kunis even getting all those precurser nominations was a wonder, she did absolutely nothing worthy in that film to get any notice. Not to mention Mila pretty much played herself the whole time, and showed no notice of being in character. In a film with such standout performances by Portman and Hershey, Kunis made the film unremarkable with her appearances.

    Zhang Ziyi deserved to get in that horrible best actress race much over Knightly. There haven’t been many Asians in the Best Actress category from what I recall. But I guess her film was to polarizing for voters, and it didn’t get to good of reviews either.

    Well, it wasnt too popular with all Asians either. Ziyi actually did receive ‘death threats’ for daring to play Japanese; and a percentage of Japanese, including expatriated and foreign born, had their own biases and refused to watch it.

    Oh I didn’t know that at all. I knew the film was controversial and all, but my isn’t that something.

    Out of this list, I would’ve nominated for Oscar…

    1994. Jamie Lee Curtis and John Turturro, specially him. 
    1996. Nathan Lane. I don’t get why that wasn’t an easy nomination to get. Specially since actors clearly loved the movie more than others nominated giving it the ensemble award too.
    1997. Pam Grier definitely. But I wouldn’t know who to replace with since I’ve never watched Christie or Dench in those movies and can’t remember Bonham Carter.
    1999. Cameron Diaz probably over Toni Collette, but I do think Collette deserved her nod, just not over Diaz.
    2002. Dennis Quaid over Chris Walken
    2003. Maria Bello over pretty much anybody. Specially Zellwegger and Hunter.
    2006. Leo DiCaprio over himself…since I think it should’ve been for The Departed not Blood Diamond.
    2007. Ryan Gosling over Johnny Depp. 
    2010. Tilda Swinton over Glenn Close.

    Goslin should have been nominated but Johnny was incredible. I usually do not care for his acting because it seems the same to me, its just the make up changes he goes through. Well in the 90s he was far better imo.  I am far from being a fan of Leo’s acting. Just a personal opinion. He’s great but not at the level many think he is. I do not see how Zellwegger got a SAG win and an oscar nod for Chicago. She was good but… I don’t care for her acting at all.

    Robin Wright should have been nominated for Forest Gump. She was absolutly incredible in that movie. Ziyi was great in “Memoirs” but she really should have been nominated for “Croutching Tiger.” I know that movie is off topic but it is unfair that only 1 Asian actress has not been nominated for a Lead oscar.

    It is a real shame Tilda Swinton didnt make it. She is the single best performance of 2011. To choose glenn close and rooney mara over her i think is just crazy. Luckily she doesnt care about oscars and getting recognition because, if she did she wouldnt have given he oscar to her agent.

    Yes, because Kunis is certainly a bisexual, drug addicted ballerina that slips pills to her friends.

    Too lazy to confirm it, but I seem to remember Evan Rachel Wood getting snubbed after GG and SAG mentions for ‘Thirteen’, same for Hammer this year??? I also didn’t think it were possible for anyone to be retarded enough to find Ziyi a more deserving candidate over Knightley, but Miss Frost has proven me wrong. Let alone a nomination, Knightley should have won that year, unless BInoche, Farmiga, Korzun, Kudrow, Danes, Blanchett etc had somehow gotten nominated as well.

    Of the ones cited above, Crowe would have been a great addition to the Best Actor lineup that year. As would have Fiennes [Constant Gardener], Mortensen [History of Violence], Lee Jones [3 burials…], Murray [Broken Flowers]…but that line-up was still quite strong.

    Gosling was terrible in ‘Lars’ so it was a good thing he got snubbed…now if only the greats from that year – Owen, Takakura, Muhe – were nominated in his stead.

    Linney got in over Jolie from what I remember, but it was actually Blanchett’s second nod for Elizabeth that should have been snubbed to make place for Jolie. But a year later Jolie did get back at Blanchett [for her greatest performance thus far, barely edging out Heaven and Little Fish]. Jolie though admittedly did give a career best perf in ‘Changeling’.

    Winslet in ‘Revolutionary Road’ > Winslet in ‘The Reader’

    Close, I’d agree with, even Davis, but Mara was magnificent and more than deserves her nod.

    Oh, the sad story of Cameron Diaz… She was the only performer who have managed to do it twice. Academy clearly doesn’t like her. I have a feeling she’ll never be nominated. Now she’s joined by Leo DiCaprio in “the twice club” but he’s liked by Academy enough.

    Zhang Ziyi was rightfully snubbed. Keira Knightley deserved that nomination.

    These last two posts are so full of win.

    Knightley was a revelation, and without Kunis to act as the perfect foil to Nina, there is no Black Swan.
