    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.

    And they were deeply wrong.

    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.

    Here are the following performances I can think of off the top of my head that deserved Oscar nods:

    Willem Dafoe in The Last Temptation of Christ
    Robert De Niro in Goodfellas
    Ben Kingsley in Hugo
    Ray Liotta in Goodfellas
    Jack Nicholson in The Departed
    Nick Nolte in Cape Fear

    By the way, I’d like to add that I literally just re-watched Goodfellas last night. Not only is it one of my favorite Scorsese pictures, but of all his losses at the Oscars prior to The Departed, that is the one to me stings the most. In my opinion, Dances with Wolves shouldn’t even been nominated for anything (at least above the line). I just found that movie to be such a chore to sit through. Goodfellas hands down should’ve swept the Oscars that year. Not because it’s by far more remembered today, but because it’s a much better movie than Dances with Wolves.
