    She was never the frontrunner.

    First Man in Editing AND Score… and it wasn’t the frontrunner but was considered a lock in Cinematography.

    Roma, A Star Is Born, and First Man all missing editing nominations last year was wild! I was pretty sure one of those 3 films would win before nomination morning.

    I actually knew Apollo 11 would be snubbed because they did the same thing to Would You Be My Neighbor: however I predicted it because I didn’t know what else to put in that category.

    Also Frozen 2 missing out on a nomination when it was a very close runner-up to Toy Story 4 last year in Best Animated Feature shocked me.

    Life Itself in Documentary Feature (just one among many in a category that habitually snubs frontrunners).

    [Oprah in The Butler] was never the frontrunner.

    I remember some of the predictions around August of 2013. Oprah was, as I recall, battling for first place in the odds with Meryl Streep in August: Osage County who was at that point pegged for a supporting campaign with Julia Roberts going lead. Lupita was almost completely out of the picture until 12 Years a Slave had premiered at Telluride, though I think a few people had heard rumours of a star-making performance and having read the source material I knew hers was a potential Oscar-bait role. Of course Lupita then exploded onto the scene and later Meryl and Julia switched categories. Predictions became Oprah vs. Lupita for the following couple of months (with a slight edge to Lupita) until American Hustle screened late in the season and then it became Lupita vs. Jennifer up until Oscar night. But Oprah was still considered by many to be a frontrunner if not the frontrunner right until around late November or early December–though that never really was the case–and managed to stay in most predictions right up to the announcement of nominations, despite her being snubbed at the Globes of all places.

    The LEGO Movie for Animated Feature. The acclaim/sweep was big but Disney’s check was bigger.

    2004 – 2008, 2010, 2012 GoldenGlobe Winners for Original Song all somehow missed the Oscar nom.
