    Every year it seems like there is at least one or two films that seemed tailor made for the Oscars and on paper look like they will be huge threats to the season, but come nomination morning these films receive only a handful of nominations or none at all. Some that come to mind from the past few years are Silence, Unbroken, Selma, and Nocturnal Animals. What are some other films that seemed destined for the Oscars, but ultimately didn’t really show up? Either this year or in previous years.

    The Big Sick, Mudbound, Downsizing are the most possible.

    Darkest Hour

    It’s winning Best Actor and Makeup, so I wouldn’t really consider it “failed” (unless you know something I don’t lol.)

    If a film got nominations and won Oscars, how is it failed Oscar bait?

    Breathe is failed Oscar bait
    Stronger
    Last Flag Flying

    Films tailor made for awards, yet go nowhere.

    Absolutely not. I didn’t like it, it was considered rotten and bland, but in the end it still won Oscars.
