    What actors were not nominated for the Oscar but if they were, (problably) would have won?

    For example, Dennis Hopper in Blue Velvet

    Not an acting category, but Ben Affleck would have won Director last year had he not been snubbed.

    He wasn’t snubbed. He didn’t deserve the media and industry sympathy.

    Snubbed is a neutral word; it means that he was not nominated, without speaking to whether that was deserved.

    I suspect that Affleck inspired this thread.

    Whenever someone brings up a topic like this, I immediately say Kimberly Elise for her BRILLIANT performance in For Colored Girls. For me, she was the best supporting actress in all films that year. She played that role so beautifully, and really pulled it off. She deserved every award for that film, and it’s a shame she only got the NAACP Image Award for it.

    Snub isn’t neutral… at least not in the dictionary :p

    ‘Overlooked’, perhaps?

    If you haven’t seen her work in Beloved (1998) it was nomination worthy also.

    Personally I think Connie Nielsen could have rivaled Marica Gay harden in 2000, although she probably wouldnt have fun, but I guess people said the same thing about Harden at the time

    Leo DiCaprio – 2006, “The Departed” (why didn’t he go supporting – major category fraud but it was an ensemble piece and Oscar loves category fraud).
                          – 2012 “Django” – wtf he was awesome in that film.

    Tilda Swinton – 2011, “We Need to Talk About Kevin” – personally I think she should have won in 2011 with this perf…

    Does anyone believe Swinton missed because people hated the movie?

    I’m not a fan of Leonardo DiCaprio, but I think Django would have been the perfect opportunity to award him an Oscar if he had been nominated. Christoph Waltz didn’t deserve a nomination in either lead or supporting, in my opinion. Therefore, if DiCaprio had taken his slot, and been nominated against 4 previous winners, it could have been an easy victory. And, on top of all that, he did actually have a great performance, which is what should count the most.

    Interesting question. Personally I didnt ‘hate’ the film and it’s certainly a marginally better film than others of this ilk, such as Beautiful Boy, which features some terrific perfs, esp from Michael Sheen.
    I wonder how many people actually saw There’s Something About Kevin. Not exactly a block-buster family-friendly movie. The voting system is also a subject for debate.

    There are an infininte number of actors et al who deserved recognition that it’s hard for me to speculate. It’s the ‘win’ part. Perhaps not win, but a nomination would have been so worthy.
