    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.

    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.

    If they could just give Paquin some dialogues and a few minutes of screentime, she could get nominated.

    The first one that came to mind was Sandra Bernhard for THE KING OF COMEDY. Along with her, DeNiro and Lewis should’ve been easy nominations. Honestly, all three of them should’ve been in serious contention to win.

    I’ll also second Griffin Dunne and Rosanna Arquette for AFTER HOURS.

    I totally agree that Goodfellas should’ve won but Dances with Wolves absolutely deserved its nominations above the line. Kevin Costner did a hell of a job, specially considering it was his first ever movie as a director. I understand the white savior part kinda kills the movie a bit, but it’s still visually stunning and has a fantastic direction. I really don’t understand all the hate this movie keeps getting.

    Jodie Foster is pretty great in Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore too. Must have been a shock to see her as the foul mouthed kid post all those Disney films.

    And she gets a great exit line in So long suckers!!!! as she leaves the police station.

    I agree After Hours is filled with great performances: Dunne, Arquette plus Teri Garr, Linda Fiorentino and Catherine O’Hara.

    Scorsese always seems a little shocked how much people like that film. He said he did it to prove he could bring a film in on time and on budget but it turned into one of his most popular films.

    Oh and Sandra Bernhard was robbed. One of my favorite performances ever. She won the National Society of Film Critics Award for it. She said nowadays she probably could have parlayed that into an Oscar nomination but back then she had no idea how to campaign and she was on her own with no help from the studio.

    Sharon Stone wasn’t snubbed. She was actually nominated for Best Actress. In fact, she was that film’s only nomination.

    Is DiCaprio really a snub for The Departed? I can vaguely remember reading how they wanted him to campaign for supporting actor or something, and clearly that was not going to happen.

    Ray Liotta not getting nominated for Henry Hill is the biggest travesty in Oscar history!

    He could have been easily nominated in Supporting too, but the truth is that DiCaprio himself didn’t want to campaign in the category against his co-stars.
