Proving that we Oscar forecasters can't always tell which way the wind is blowing, the Academy Awards gave the cold shoulder to a number of seemingly strong contenders. (See complete list of nominees here)

The most notable omission in the top race is "The Master," which reaped three acting bids. Also MIA are three blockbusters with critical cred: "The Dark Knight Rises," "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" and "Skyfall." (Read report on nominations here)

The directing lineup is missing three of the DGA nominees -- Ben Affleck ("Argo"), Kathryn Bigelow ("Zero Dark Thirty") and Tom Hooper ("Les Miserables") -- as well as another helmer of one of the nine Best Picture nominees, Quentin Tarantino ("Django Unchained"). 

Snubbed save for a makeup/hair nod was "Hitchcock" which stars Oscar winners Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren. And "Anna Karenina," Joe Wright's third film with Keira Knightley picked up just four creative bids.
