    It’s well-known how much Oscar voters love performances in Martin Scorsese’s movies, with many of them rightfully getting nominated and/or winning over the years. However, there are many other worthy performers who were, for whatever reason, snubbed when they also deserved such recognition. So I thought there should be a special thread for those performers who should’ve gotten that recognition. First, though, so as there’s no confusion over snubs, here’s a full list of those who DID get acting nominations throughout the years, with wins highlighted in bold:

    Alan Alda (The Aviator)
    Cate Blanchett (The Aviator)
    Lorraine Bracco (Goodfellas)
    Ellen Burstyn (Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore)
    Daniel Day-Lewis (Gangs Of New York)
    Robert De Niro (Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Cape Fear)
    Leonardo DiCaprio (The Aviator, The Wolf Of Wall Street)
    Jodie Foster (Taxi Driver)
    Jonah Hill (The Wolf Of Wall Street)
    Diane Ladd (Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore)
    Juliette Lewis (Cape Fear)
    Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio (The Color Of Money)
    Cathy Moriarty (Raging Bull)
    Paul Newman (The Color Of Money)
    Al Pacino (The Irishman)
    Joe Pesci (Raging Bull, Goodfellas, The Irishman)
    Winona Ryder (The Age Of Innocence)
    Sharon Stone (Casino)
    Mark Wahlberg (The Departed)

    And now, here are my personal picks on who I think SHOULD have gotten nominations, but were snubbed:

    Sandra Bernhard (The King Of Comedy)
    Asa Butterfield (Hugo)
    Willem Dafoe (The Last Temptation Of Christ)
    Robert De Niro (The King Of Comedy, The Irishman)
    Leonardo DiCaprio (Shutter Island)
    Andrew Garfield (Silence)*
    Barbara Hershey (The Last Temptation Of Christ)
    Harvey Keitel (The Last Temptation Of Christ)
    Ben Kingsley (Shutter Island, Hugo)
    Jerry Lewis (The King Of Comedy)
    Chloe Grace Moretz (Hugo)
    Liam Neeson (Silence)
    Jack Nicholson (The Departed)
    Michelle Pfeiffer (The Age Of Innocence)

    *Yes, Garfield was technically nominated for Hacksaw Ridge that same year, but I feel he was more worthy of a nomination for Silence.

    Let me know what other Scorsese performers you think missed out on a nomination.

    Good one. Daniel Day-Lewis in The Age of Innocence is the biggest snub IMO although he was still nominated in 1993 but for a lesser performance and film.
    Also:
    Willem Dafoe, The Last Temptation of Christ
    Michelle Pfeiffer, The Age of Innocence
    Robert De Niro, The Irishman

    Liam Neeson (Silence)

    He was good but the real MVP of that film was Issey Ogata.

    Can’t really agree that Day-Lewis was better in The Age of Innocence than In the Name of the Father. But while we’re on the subject of Best Actor 1993, David Thewlis should’ve swept for Naked.

    Willem Dafoe not getting nominated for Last Temptation baffles me considering Scorsese got in for directing.

    Andrew Garfield should’ve been nominated for Silence instead of Hacksaw Ridge and Issei Ogata should’ve gotten in for Supporting.

    DiCaprio should’ve won for The Aviator and The Wolf of Wall Street and Margot Robbie should’ve been nominated for the latter.

    De Niro should’ve won for Taxi Driver and also for Mean Streets and The King of Comedy(for which he wasn’t even nominated).

    Nicholson and DiCaprio should’ve been nominated for The Departed.

    Nicholson was by far the best performance in The Departed.

    Yes, very, very wrong indeed! It’s up there with all the nominations for The Shining as arguably the worst Razzie nominations of all time!!

    I haven’t seen it in awhile, but I remember Ben Kingsley being wonderful in Hugo.

    I will never forgive awards season for ignoring Silence the way it did. Jesus, that was gross. Issei Ogata 5ever.

    Adding Minnelli and De Niro for New York, New York, Rosanna Arquette in After Hours, and Anna Paquin in The Irishman.
