So ultimately, you guys think Drive was the biggest Best Picture snub back in 2011. For the next poll, we’ll go into Best Actor for this year. While the category wasn’t in strong form this year, there were still some great performances left out in the cold. My vote would go to Ben Mendelsohn, who is a Spirit nominee for Mississippi Grind, yet wasn’t in the conversation as much as he should’ve been. How about you guys?February 6, 2016 at 6:22 am #215547
I think Samuel L. Jackson’s performance was underappreciated. A lot of people seem to admit it was entertaining, but I think it was much more complex than that. There was so much going on about racial tension, and how that had to do with the way he was perceived throughout the movie. He had a lot more to do than he has been given credit for. He should’ve gotten a nomination. I would give it to him over anyone who actually was nominated. My vote went to Tremblay though. That was potentially the best performance of the year. I also think Geza Rohrig and Andrew Garfield are worth mentioning.February 6, 2016 at 6:26 am #215548
If not for Tremblay, I would have voted Jason Segel. I’d also like to give a shout-out to Ian McKellan, who I think gave the best performance of the year.February 6, 2016 at 6:31 am #215549
Where is Geza Rohrig? He should have been included in a list of ten.February 6, 2016 at 6:46 am #215550
Ah, forgot about Rohrig. I’d add him, but it won’t let me add another poll option. But whoever I leave out is what the Other option is for.February 6, 2016 at 7:11 am #215551
Dano, Tremblay, and Jordan all deserved the nomination. I’d also like to mention Andrew Garfield for 99 Homes and Jake Gyllenhaal for Southpaw. I don’t think they would have made my top 5, but they deserved to be in the conversation at least.February 6, 2016 at 10:11 am #215552
Jacob Tremblay, but I want to bring attention to Tom Hanks in Bridge of Spies. Fantasic work that should have gotten more attention.February 6, 2016 at 10:31 am #215553
I much prefer this line-up to the Oscars oneFebruary 6, 2016 at 10:34 am #215554
Samuel LFebruary 6, 2016 at 12:24 pm #215555
Jacob Tremblay, no contest here. The boy should have been nominated and should have won. Sorry Leo.February 6, 2016 at 12:30 pm #215556
I was also a huge fan of 99 Homes. I found it unfortunate that his performance never really seemed to go anywhere, as far as awards were concerned. Even the campaign for the film seemed more centered around Michael Shannon’s work.February 6, 2016 at 1:14 pm #215558
I meant AttahFebruary 6, 2016 at 1:16 pm #215557
The big three for me are Jordan, Dano, and ElbaFebruary 6, 2016 at 2:20 pm #215559
Tremblay’s performance in Room was unlike anything I’ve seen before. I love Leo, but if the Oscar were between Tremblay and DiCaprio I’d have to go with the kid.
