    Nothing too far-fetched but here are some recent ones –

    Tom Hooper – Les Mis!!
    Rush, August Osage County, Ides of March for Picture if they were ever in the running
    John Hawkes –  The Sessions (given the final lineup)
    Tom Hanks and Paul Greengrass – Captain Philips
    Helen Mirren – Hitchcock
    Leonardo DiCaprio – J.Edgar
    David FIncher – The Girl With the Dragon Tatoo
    Chris Nolan – Inception
    Julianne Moore – Kids Are All Right (esp for Lead)

    I think Emma Thompson was definitely rightly snubbed for Mr. Banks… Loved her performance & that film, but 5 of the best performances of the year – no way. Streep and Adams were more deserving, in spite of the latter’s being overrated.

    I am very happy that Mila Kunis was snubbed.

    At the time, I was happy about Shailene Woodley being snubbed, but now I wish that she got in for The Descendants to make up for her snub for The Spectacular Now.

    John Hawkes –  The Sessions (given the final lineup)

    Hugh or Cooper would have been rightfully replace with Hawkes or Trintignant.

    Zhang Ziyi for Memoirs of a Geisha, Ben Alfleck for directing and acting in Argo, and Meryl Streep for The Hours immediately comes to mind.

    ^This! Especially the former, and I’ll add that Washington should’ve been replaced by Denis Lavant in Holy Motors (my avatar pic), but that was never going to happen. I’m assuming by ‘High’ you mean Hugh, right?

    Zhang Ziyi looked and sounded so blatantly Chinese in Memoirs of a Geisha (great dancing though), and I’m glad the Academy nominated Keira Knightley instead for one of her least affected performances in Pride and Prejudice.

    I don’t think Affleck was ever a contender for acting in Argo though – BAFTA probably nominated him only because they mistook him for one, evidence of how desperate they are to compare with Oscar. I’d like to hear a convincing argument as to how this was one of the 5 best male lead performances of 2012.

    Recently, Emma Thompson for Saving Mr. Banks immediately comes to mind.

    Also:
    Tom Hooper (Les Mis)
    Ben Affleck (Argo)
    Paul Greengrass (Captain Phillips)
    Helen Mirren (Hitchcock)

    I’m sure there’s lots more, but those are the ones that had  a lot of the precursors and were expected to get nominated.

    Come to think of it, I definitely agree on Trintignant over Cooper or Jackman. But both of them we’re half bad either imo.

    Ben Affleck for Argo (directing) is a really good example.  Unless you are a member of the entertainment media that propogated the totally overblown Argo pity campaign.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen something quite like that, when more deserving directors were passed over.  Sigh, the power of celebrity and the stupid American public and Academy for buying into it.  No wonder directors like Bunuel were disgusted by the Oscars.

    Agree with every word!

    Wow, lots of people here who were not that crazy about Captain Phillips…

    Anyways, off the top of my head i can think of just three:
    Oprah Winfrey, The Butler
    Tom Hooper, Les Miserables
    Ben Affleck, Argo (Directing)

    Yup, I agree. She was fantastic, but she was #6. Easily.

    Yeah, kinda crazy. I would have given Tom the Oscar.
