    Let’s play a game. I’ll start by asking: What was worse? – X never being nominated for an Oscar or Tom Cruise never winning?

    If your answer is X, then say so and then make a comparison to him. For example, what’s worse:X never winning or the fact that Joan Crawford wasn’t nominated for “Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?”

    OK? Let’s start now. What was worse? – X never being nominated for an Oscar or Tom Cruise never winning?

    (NOTE: Sorry, but I screwed up this initial post, using Harrison Ford as an example, but, as pointed out below, he WAS nominated for Witness. Substitute for another example.)

    I’ll go off the assumption that you mean neither winning, and to that I will respond Tom Cruise never winning. Now I will ask which is worse, Tom Cruise never winning or Ralph Fiennes never winning?

    That’s not how..

    Okay, I will say Tom Cruise never winning and ask which is worse, Tom Cruise never winning or Naomi Watts not even being nominated for Mulholland Drive?

    Naomi Watts not even being nominated for Mulholland Drive.

    Which is worse, Naomi Watts snubbed for Mulholland Drive or Amy Adams not winning?

    Which is worse, Amy not winning or Sissy Spacek didn’t win for In the Bedroom?

    I’m fine with both but I gotta say Amy Adams never winning is worse as she would be very deserving for “The Fighter”, at least, and Spacek had many better performances than “In the Bedroom”.

    Worst Oscar snub: Amy Adams not winning or Thelma Ritter not winning an Oscar despite multiple Oscar nods (between them all but 1 in Supporting Actress)?

    Explaining why someone picked A over B would make it more interesting.

    Tom Cruise not winning for Jerry Maguire but Cuba Gooding Jr. Winning for “show me the moneyyyyy” pretty much sums up why a lot of people think the oscars are a joke lol. He should’ve won best supporting for Magnolia as well

    Glenn Close losing consecutively for Fatal Attraction and Dangerous Liaisons, is the Academy’s greatest snub ever.

    Glenn Close—but I wasn’t given a choice. So I’ll go with Thelma Ritter not winning was worse.

    Question: Which is worse, Kirsten Dunst not being nominated for Melancholia in 2012 or Glenn Close not winning for Albert Nobbs over Meryl Streep in 2012?

    Kirsten Dunst not getting nominated.

    I’m not sure I understood the rules perfectly but I’ll go along. Dunst not getting nominated or The Dark Knight not making into Best Picture?
