    There were so many other actors in the cast who could have been listed: her two husbands, the kids,his girlfriend, Arquette’s mother, the woman who took her in when she was abused..

    I wonderwhy they only submitted the main 4.  

    I bet that hurt their chances.

    I think they were the only four actors who had separate title cards.

    ^Does that separate title card thing really count though? Orange is the New Black just won for its 40!! member ensemble, and I’m pretty sure not everyone in that show gets a separate title card intro.

    It counts for movies. I think for television you need to appear in half of your show’s season.

    The title cards definitely count. Julia Stiles wasn’t up for Silver Linings Playbook, despite being a somewhat recognizable name, because I believe she was credited alongside someone else. John Ortiz, who had a somewhat sizable part, was also omitted. 

    You also had Calista Flockhart not getting in for Ensemble with the rest of her castmates from The Birdcage (which won that year) for similar reasons.

    That one still boggles my mind. Calista deserved her separate title card. Someone send her a SAG.
