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 omissions in the top race are "Blue Jasmine," which reaped two acting bids, "Inside Llewyn Davis" from Oscar darlings Joel and Ethan Coen and "Saving Mr. Banks," which had been an early frontrunner. (Read report on nominations here).

The acting branch ignored Tom Hanks twice -- for his lead role in "Captain Phillips" and his supporting turn in "Saving Mr. Banks," the latter of which starred Emma Thompson who was also snubbed. Also MIA are Robert Redford ("All is Lost") and Oprah Winfrey ("The Butler"); both led their races in the early part of the season. 

The directing lineup is missing one of the DGA nominees -- Paul Greengrass ("Captain Phillips") -- as well as the helmers of three of the other nine Best Picture nominees.
