    Michael Fassbender for Shame is a weird snub. He was having his breakthrough year with this and his first X-men movie, he was universally praised for his work in Shame, he had a lot of buzz because of the full frontal nude scene. Basically, he was the hot new actor that year.

    Instead Demian Bichir got in with a much weaker narrative.

    In acting categories nothing beats Amy Adams in Arrival and Paul Giamatti in Sideways in that they both were nominated for every award under the sun in the TOP 5 Best Picture nominee and missed.

    DIRECTING: Ron Howard – Apollo 13, Ben Affleck – Argo, Steven Spielberg – The Color Purple and Barbra Streisand – The Prince of Tides (even though this film it trash lol)

    And it isn’t like they have something against him (like Emily Blunt), considering they’ve nominated him twice after this.

    Emily Blunt for at least 5 performances which, if her name was Adams, Lawrence or Stone, would have been a “lock” before anyone even saw a screening.

    Tilda Swinton was a baffling snub for We Need to Talk About Kevin especially as a previous winner. It’s not like they hadn’t nominated dark performances before.

    FYC:

    Antonio Banderas and Asier Etxeandia, Dolor y Gloria (Best Actor/Supporting Actor)
    Emily Beecham, Little Joe (Best Actress)
    Ian McKellen and Helen Mirren, The Good Liar (Best Actor/Actress)

    Darlings, Thatcher is still hurt because of the Ryan Gosling snub for First Man. Especially when the winner was Animatronic. I mean, I thought the Oscars awarded the best and not the worst performances of the year…

    I was your Prime Minister once.

    City of God for Best Foreign Language Film

    Though that turned out to be a blessing in disguise, as it wouldn’t have been eligible for the four major noms it did get the following year if it had been nominated for Best Foreign Language Film (the Academy really need to rethink these stupid eligibility rules).

    I think some people on here are too harsh towards Malek’s performance. With that being said, I definitely wouldn’t have given him the win. I thought Bradley Cooper and Viggo Mortensen were both way better.

    Emily Blunt for at least 5 performances which, if her name was Adams, Lawrence or Stone, would have been a “lock” before anyone even saw a screening.

    That’s gross hyperbole. All three of them would most likely face the same fate as Blunt if they were in her place. Blunt’s problem is that her movies lack overall support and her performances don’t have the precursor and critics push to overcome that. Except Poppins and maybe Prada, she never had a chance for any of her other roles.

    Some statistics:

    Emma Stone has starred in 1 BP winner and 3 other nominees, which have received a total of 21 above the line nods with 7 wins. For all three of her nominations, she was nominated by all the precursors and critics groups as well.

    Jennifer Lawrence has starred in 3 BP nominees and her films have received 19 above the line noms in total. Except Joy, all of her other nods had extremely strong critical backing as well. She has even won NYFCC, NSFC and LAFCA, and not even for the same role.

    Adams has starred in 5 BP nominees, and her films have garnered a total of 36 above the line nods. 5/6 movies she got nominated for were very popular with the acting branch, evident by the fact that they had 3 or more acting nominations. She has won the LAFCA and NSFC (twice) and her performances are usually popular within critics circle.

    Emily Blunt has starred in zero Best Picture nominees and the only two nominations her movies have received above the line are for Meryl Streep. She has barely gotten nominations from critics groups. Mary Poppins was the closest she was to getting nominated, and I think she is most likely getting nominated in the coming years.

    While I acknowledge that the academy seems to have shown some aversion to nominating her, this supposed ‘hate’ is extremely exaggerated (especially here). Her not getting nominated is understandable given the circumstances everytime.

    I can’t even-

    and not even syncing that well. Any random Drag Race contestant could do better lip-syncing than him.

    I tend to like Malek as an actor but he was awful in Bohemian Rhapsody.

    For Your Consideration:

    Best Picture: Weathering With You, Parasite, The Lighthouse
    Best Supporting Actor: Willem Dafoe - The Lighthouse
    Best Animated Feature: Weathering With You, Promare
    Best International Film: Weathering With You, Parasite
