    Hey everyone, this is my first forum post!

    I have been ruminating over the (not so entirely shocking) snub of Robert Redford. When I was looking into similar snubs of recent years, I came across a striking similarity with the snub of Redford and the snub of Albert Brooks 2 years ago for Drive.

    For many months prior to nominations, Albert Brooks was a virtual lock for everyone, and many thought he had a very good chance at winning for his portrayal of the evil Drive mob boss. However, he was snubbed by both BAFTA and SAG, and when Oscar nominations came around, both he and the film were snubbed, save for a nomination in Sound Editing.

    Coming into this year, Robert Redford was a number one lock and a top choice to win Best Actor. Strangely enough, he followed Brook’s pattern: snubbed at BAFTA and SAG, and when Oscar nominations came around, both he and the film were snubbed; with the exception of, you guessed it, a nomination in Sound Editing.

    I just found this to be a quite amazing coincidence: two veterans, seemingly past due; Both snubbed, but their films receive sole nominations in an “obscure category”, almost intentionally ignoring them.

    Good catch!  I love random stuff like this.  Both also got Critics’ Choice nominations.

    –  My hands are a little dirty

    – So Am I.

    Brooks should’ve been nominated for that one line alone.

    well shit,  I’m pretty disappointed, cuz I’ve been thinking about this line for so much time and always thought it was brilliant.  Well still, his delivery is fantastic.

    God damn it.
