    Which leading man from the past six years was the most ridiculously robbed of an Oscar nomination?

    For me, it was Tom Hanks in “Captain Phillips” (2013) — that final scene alone warranted a win.

    Hanks is a solid mention. Michael B. Jordan from Creed last year stands out in a big way too.

    For me, leaving Joaquin Phoenix out of the top five for Her in 2014 hurt pretty bad. Jake Gyllenhaal for Nightcrawler in 2015 is a close second.

    I have Tom Hanks #7 for that year — that accent is pretty spotty.

    10. Michael Caine (Youth, 2015)
    9. Antoine Pilon (Mommy, 2014)
    8. Mads Mikkelson (The Hunt, 2013)
    7. Jake Gyllenhaal (Nightcrawler, 2014)
    6. Abraham Attah (Beasts of No Nation, 2015)
    5. Peyman Moaadi (A Separation, 2011)
    4. Edgar Ramirez (Carlos, 2010)
    3. Matthew McConaughey (Interstellar, 2014)
    2. Joaquin Phoenix (Her, 2013)
    1. Ryan Gosling (2010, Blue Valentine)

    In my opinion, the ones that were in close contention for a nomination that missed out that were pretty outrageous (or at least I thought were deserving) were John Hawkes for The Sessions, Joaquin Phoenix for Her, Tom Hanks for Captain Phillips, and Jake Gyllenhaal for Nightcrawler. Of performances that somewhat underwhelmed in awards season, but deserved a lot more recognition and an Oscar nomination were Suraj Sharma for Life of Pi, Chadwick Boseman for Get on Up, Abraham Attah for Beasts of No Nation, and Jason Segel for The End of the Tour.

    The Tom Hanks snub was ridiculous.

    Also, no one mentioning Ralph Fiennes? I thought he was incredible.

    Jake Gyllenhaal for Nightcrawler and David Oyelowo for Selma. Gosling and Fiennes are fantastic calls too.

    I was really happy Hanks wasn’t nominated.

    Michael Fassbender – Shame
    Jean-Louis Trintignant – Amour
    Oscar Isaac – Inside Llewyn Davis
    Ralph Fiennes – The Grand Budapest Hotel
    Timothy Spall – Mr. Turner
    Tom Courtenay – 45 Years

    Of course there are many others who deserved nominations but were so far out of the conversation that they don’t really qualify as ‘snubs’ in the true sense.

    Most of my personal mentions have been cited by you all already.

    But here’s one:
    ANY of the “lead” men in Cloud Atlas.

    Jim Broadbent
    Ben Whishaw
    Jim Sturgess
    James D’Arcy
    Tom Hanks

    A true, mind-blowing ensemble. Under appreciated, under seen, and under-rated.

    1. Jason Tremblay – Room (what this kid did in “Room” can easily match every nominee)
    2. Michael Fassbender – Shame
    3. Tom Hanks – Captain Phillips
    4. Jake Gyllenhaal – Nightcrawler
    5. Joaquin Phoenix – Her
    6. Ralph Fiennes – The Grand Budapest Hotel

    The first two ones are the most outrageous given nominees in respective years.

    Michael Fassbender for Shame in 2012. He should get in instead of Clooney.
