Let’s play a game. I’ll start by asking: What was worse? – X never being nominated for an Oscar or Tom Cruise never winning?
If your answer is X, then say so and then make a comparison to him. For example, what’s worse:X never winning or the fact that Joan Crawford wasn’t nominated for “Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?”
OK? Let’s start now. What was worse? – X never being nominated for an Oscar or Tom Cruise never winning?
(NOTE: Sorry, but I screwed up this initial post, using Harrison Ford as an example, but, as pointed out below, he WAS nominated for Witness. Substitute for another example.)December 26, 2016 at 9:40 pm #1201975261
Ford is a 1985 Best Actor nominee for Witness.December 26, 2016 at 10:31 pm #1201975277
I’ll go off the assumption that you mean neither winning, and to that I will respond Tom Cruise never winning. Now I will ask which is worse, Tom Cruise never winning or Ralph Fiennes never winning?December 26, 2016 at 10:37 pm #1201975279
The Wizard of Oz not in Best Picture
I am semi-retired on GoldDerby. Still predicting but infrequent in the forums. I am sorry for my past behaviour.December 26, 2016 at 11:26 pm #1201975299
That’s not how..
Okay, I will say Tom Cruise never winning and ask which is worse, Tom Cruise never winning or Naomi Watts not even being nominated for Mulholland Drive?December 27, 2016 at 4:46 am #1201975370
Amy adams not winning.
Which is worse, Amy not winning or Sissy Spacek didn’t win for In the Bedroom?
NOTHING TO SEE HEREDecember 27, 2016 at 5:36 am #1201975390
I’m fine with both but I gotta say Amy Adams never winning is worse as she would be very deserving for “The Fighter”, at least, and Spacek had many better performances than “In the Bedroom”.
Worst Oscar snub: Amy Adams not winning or Thelma Ritter not winning an Oscar despite multiple Oscar nods (between them all but 1 in Supporting Actress)?
Explaining why someone picked A over B would make it more interesting.December 27, 2016 at 5:50 am #1201975396
Tom Cruise not winning for Jerry Maguire but Cuba Gooding Jr. Winning for “show me the moneyyyyy” pretty much sums up why a lot of people think the oscars are a joke lol. He should’ve won best supporting for Magnolia as well
Picture: Banshees, Top Gun
Actor: Farrell, Fraser, Butler
Supporting Actor: GleesonDecember 27, 2016 at 5:57 am #1201975400
Glenn Close losing consecutively for Fatal Attraction and Dangerous Liaisons, is the Academy’s greatest snub ever.December 27, 2016 at 6:58 am #1201975410
Can people just not read?December 27, 2016 at 7:02 am #1201975411
Glenn Close—but I wasn’t given a choice. So I’ll go with Thelma Ritter not winning was worse.
Question: Which is worse, Kirsten Dunst not being nominated for Melancholia in 2012 or Glenn Close not winning for Albert Nobbs over Meryl Streep in 2012?
Everything Everywhere All At Once
The Banshees of Inisherin
