    Don’t forget the amazing Sareh Bayat.

    A Separation should’ve been an easy Ensemble win at SAG.

    The two that caught me off guard from the top of my head are Amy Adams in Arrival (although I did not care for her in the film) and Tom Hanks in Captain Phillips.

    Basically the entire cast of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

    Michelle Yeoh
    Zhang Ziyi
    Chang Chen
    Cheng Pei-Pei
    Chow Yun-Fat

    They all should have been nominated for their brilliant performances and I think Zhang Ziyi should have won Lead Actress that year and Chang Chen should have won Supporting Actor and Cheng Pei-Pei should have won Supporting Actress. Its mind boggling that this talented cast was left out in the dust. I also think that the movie should have easily won Best Picture and Best Director and basically every category it was competing in but that’s a conversation for another day. Not only is this movie one of my favourites of all time but its easily one of the greatest movies of all time.

    Reminder that Amy Adams in Arrival was nominated by SAG, Globes, BAFTA, and CC. Just because she didn’t get the Oscar nomination doesn’t mean she went unrecognized by the awards circuit.

    The OP explicitly states this as well.

    Reading is fundamental.

    For this year, I’m gonna name

    From previous years:

    idk how close Knives Out to getting BP, but Ana de Armas deserves more mentions

    He won a CC, but still underrecognized me think

    imo, one of the best romantic-interest-of-our-female-lead 

    ngl, Ben Affleck was good in Gone Girl, he was so good playing an asshole that I had to root for Amy

    Garfield reigns supreme

    I’m still surprised A Serious Man actually got into BP
