    Since there is a thread for the Oscar loss that angered you the most, (www.goldderby.com/forum/topics/view/9602), I figured I’d create a thread on which Oscar snub angered you the most. Which name or film were you disheartened to not hear announced on Nomination Day?

     
    Here are some of mine:

    Emma Thompson for Saving Mr. Banks
    Michael Fassbender for Shame 
    Shailene Woodley for The Descendants
    Sally Hawkins for Happy-Go-Lucky
    Almost Famous for Best Picture
    Christopher Nolan for Best Director (Inception)

    I don’t care about the politics, Andy Serkis never being nominated for the LOTR films is a complete mess.

    Can’t talk for that user but I myself would snub Meryl Streep (A:OC) and Jeremy Renner (The Town) in favor of Emma Thompson and Andrew Garfield respectively. And I would snub Ang Lee for Kathryn Bigelow’s majestic work in ZD30

    There’s a lot that looking back annoy me, but there’s only one snub (well actually two but they’re connected) that really angered me at the time and made me forever cynical of the Oscars: The Dark Knight being snubbed for Picture and Director. 

    And when Inception was snubbed for Director (and Editing, what the fuck) a couple years later, it was the nail in the coffin.

    Yet somehow I still follow Oscars closely enough to be posting on Gold Derby…

    Please narrow your choices to one response and be descriptive. If you do that, we might use your answer in an upcoming blog item on the home page.

    I’ll take out Sandra Bullock and put Emma Thompson in.
    I’ll take out Extremely Out & Incredibly Close and put in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo in a heartbeat.
    I’ll take out Amy Adams and put in Mila Kunis.
    I’ll take out The Pirates Band of Misfits and put in Rise of the Guardians
    I’ll take out Michael Haneke and put in Kathryn Bigelow

    And the others I don’t know who I would take out.

    My personal choice for the “snub” would have to be WILLIAM HURT
    in The Accidental Tourist in 1988..
    He had been nominated 3 years in a row previously and #4 wouldve
    tied him with legend Brando..and i guess the academy somehow decided
    to dismiss him and his performance…IMO.. the finest of his career…
    I wouldve  easily substituted HURT for Edward James Olmos who gave
    a boring, politically correct performance in what I would consider a TV
    movie…Stand and Deliver was a blah effort..

    The Accidental Tourist was nominated for 4 oscars including Best Picture
    and won the supporting actress award for Geena Davis…a great film version
    of the novel and the snub of the lead character played by William Hurt
    angered me at the time..

    • Leonardo DiCaprio for Revolutionary Road. He was just outstanding and perfect in that role and I hate the fact that the whole movie (with the exception of the always brilliant Michael Shannon) was criminally overlooked by the Oscars.
    • Michael Fassbender (Shame), Ryan Gosling (Drive) and Michael Shannon (Take Shelter) would make astonishing nominees in a line-up with Brad Pitt, Gary Oldman or George Clooney. That year was terrible generally speaking…
    • …And that leads to KIRSTEN DUNST FOR MELANCHOLIA. I know Von Trier is a hard pill to swallow but that performance was everything. Everything. It deserved to be nominated. She was aces.
    • Same with Elizabeth Olsen for Martha Marcy May Marlene and Charlize Theron for Young Adult. God I hate the 2011’s Oscars.
    • Adele Exarchopoulos for Blue Is The Warmest Color! Meryl Streep who?
    • Tom Hanks for Captain Phillips
    • Robert DeNiro for The King of Comedy.
    • Naomi Watts for Mulholland Drive is the sole reason for the invention of the word “snub”
    • Laura Dern for Inland Empire
    • Jake Gyllenhaal for Prisoners (even though last year’s line-up was pretty stellar. I would remove Bradley Cooper)

    last year the two big snubs for me were:
    Adele Exarchopoulos, who should have won.
    Oscar Isaac, who also should have won.

    Others over the last decade who should have been nominated:
    -Lea Seydoux – Blue is the Warmest Color (should have won)
    -Joaquin Phoenix – Her
    -Scarlett Johansson, Her
    -Rosmarie DeWitt – Rachel Getting Married
    -Julie Delpy – Before Sunset
    -Q’orianka Kilcher – The New World
    -Laura Dern – Inland Empire (should have won)
    -Sally Hawkins – Happy Go Lucky
    -Naomi Watts – Mulholland Drive (should have won)
    -Melanie Laurent – Inglourious Basterds

    Too many to mention, so I’ll just stop there.
