    While we did see a number of previous Oscar nominees/winners get nominated for this first time in over a decade this past year like Kathy Bates, Tom Hanks, Anthony Hopkins, Elton John, Sam Mendes, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Charlize Theron, and Renée Zellweger, there’s another number of people who still haven’t been nominated in a while. So what are some past Oscar snubs that you felt suggested that Academy members were thinking “We’ve already acknowledged this person/kind of movie, we’re moving on”?

    I say this all the time. One nomination / one win does not grant a default into perennial status of frequent nominee on the path to a 2nd or 3rd victory. The industry and the actors’ branch has their favorites. Most are just lucky to be considered just the once. The really criminal thing are those never chosen at all yet have the credits and credibility with the public and the critics.

    Definitely Al Pacino seminal performances after Scent of a Woman and before The Irishman:

    Carlito’s Way
    Heat
    Donnie Brasco
    The Insider
    Insomnia
    The Merchant of Venice

    Shirley MacLaine. She won for Terms of Endearment and then three years in a row she was considered a possibility but none of them happened. Madame Sousatzka (won the Globe in that tie), Steel Magnolias and Postcards from the Edge.

    Postcards From the Edge is, IMO, her absolute best work.

    On the DVD Carrie Fisher says MacLaine was stunned that she didn’t get a nomination. Shirley was also left out for Being There when she was considered a possibility come to think of it.

    Haven’t seen Madame yet but she was outstanding in Postcards & would’ve been a fantastic nominee (and winner tbh)

    Susan Sarandon got “finally her time” win with Dead Man Walking after 4 nomination in 5 ceremonies and has (so far) never been nominated again.

    She’s been in contention with Stepmom & Igby Goes Down and she herself thought she was Oscar worthy in 2016’s The Meddler (and I agree)

    William Hurt got three nominations in a row and then wasn’t even nominated for The Accidental Tourist while it was nominated for Best Picture and even won for Geena Davis. It was like they were just enough! of William Hurt for now. (He did eventually get that Supporting nomination years later)

    Russell Crowe was sort of the same thing. Three in a row and then left out for Master and Commander.

    And for Cinderella Man; he was definitely nomination worthy.

    Henry Fonda for the next 41 years after his Grapes of Wrath nomination, until his second nomination (and win) for On Golden Pond

    Tarantino and Sorkin both missing out on screenplay nominations in 2015 after winning in 2012/2010 respectively

    Nicholson missing for The Departed

    Lupita mising for Us

    Lots of actors who won on their first nomination and never got nominated afterwards (Jennifer Connelly, Michael Douglas, Jeremy Irons, Kevin Kline, Tim Robbins, Tilda Swinton)

     

    As far as “we’re done with this type of movie” goes…

    Rocketman after Bohemian Rhapsody

    Singin’ in the Rain after An American in Paris

    Jackie Brown after Pulp Fiction

    Lord of the Rings sequels not getting any acting nominations after McKellen in Fellowship

     

    Also, just as a general trend – WOC winning Best Actress after Halle Berry, women winning Best Director after Kathryn Bigelow, and (I fear) foreign-language movies winning Best Picture after Parasite

    Jake Gyllenhaal has tried practically every single Oscar bait type roles and has failed besides the 1 nomination he got.

    In terms of Globes, I remember a lot of people thought JLaw would sneak into their drama lineup for Mother, as she had a strong track record with them and the category was fairly open.

    Let’s Go Bucks
