    They’re not huge snubs, there just losses you disagree with.

    Snubs have nothing to do with quality, they are more dependent on expectation. Therefore whether you think she should have won or not Lauren Bacall’s 1996 loss was a huge snub as everyone thought she was going to win. Her not doing so was a very personal slap in the face.

    Usually snubs are dolled out during nominations rather than at the actual ceremony. It’s one thing to not win against strong competition it’s another thing entirely to not even be nominated, especially if you’ve been consistently lauded at the precursor awards or you are noticeably absent when the rest of your colleagues on the film are nommed.

    Paul Giamatti for ‘Sideways’ being a recent example of a huge snub.

    DiCaprio has been snubbed by Oscar voters on numerous occasions.

    Snubs are not people who deserved to win but didn’t, they are people who should’ve/were expected to get nominated but didn’t. Recent examples from last year is Albert Brooks for Drive, The Help for Best Adapted Screenplay and Tilda Swinton for We Need To Talk About Kevin (which I called).

    I’m also going to say The Thin Blue Line for Best Documentary Feature in 1988. It is, next to Scared Straight!, the best documentary ever! Also, Raging Bull for Best Adapted Screenplay.

    Three recent (being within the last 25 years) that came to mind in terms of acting were Nicole Kidman in “To Die For”, Reese Witherspoon in “Election”, and Naomi Watts in “Mulholland Dr.”

    Bjork in Dancer in the Dark–Simply Ridiculous

    Donald Southerland in Ordinary People–One of my favorite performances of all time and DEFINITELY my favorite performance in the film (that is already filled with great performances) 

    Sean Astin in TLOTR: Return of the King–So surprised he didn’t get in considering the love for the movie.

    Paul Giamatti in Sideways–My favorite performance of that year.

    Kate Winslet in Revolutionary Road–Even though her win for The Reader was pretty much a win for both performances…  I thought she was better in RR.

    Yes, three terrible snubs!

    Also painful in recent memory:

    Andrew Garfield – The Social Network

    Ryan Gosling – Blue Valentine

    Kristin Scott Thomas – I’ve Loved You So Long

    Sally Hawkins – Happy Go Lucky

    and especially, worst of all, Michael Fassbeneder in Shame: ROBBED
