    Danny Glover (The Color Purple)
    Sharon Jones & Regina King (Ray) Sidney Poitier (In the Heat of the Night)

    Absolutely

    Thinking about how Regina would easily get the nom (and even be competitive to win) for Ray nowadays. But she was still hella underrated and unrecognized back then

    Courtney Love screwed herself out of a nomination by wanting to go lead. She’d probably have gotten in as Supporting (taking Joan Allen’s spot.) I always thought her desire to go lead probably had something to do with wanting to beat out Madonna for Evita. She’s always had animosity towards her. (she threw a shoe at Madonna once on MTV live and Madonna said something about this is what recreational drug use does to you.)

    I wonder if there’s a chance that in the end Madonna and Courtney vote splitted so that neither were Oscar nominated, the irony! Shame as I thought both were fantastic.

    I’m still surprised Jennifer Connelly wasn’t nominated for House of Sand and Fog. It was well received by the Academy and not long after her Oscar win.

    Other picks would be Angela Basset for Malcolm X and Jada Pinkett for Ali, Kerry Washington for Ray.

    Looking at this years, “honest ballots”, it seems that having 3 eternal Razzie favourites in Adam Sandler, Eddie Murphy, Jennifer Lopez all competing for Oscars this year is was too much for certain voters to handle and blanked them all completely.

    I wonder if a similar thing occurred with two world famous musicians Madonna & Courtney.

    I image a similar thing would’ve happened with two world famous musicians Madonna & Courtney.

    Still can’t believe that Jonathan Pryce got nominated for that average performance over Adam Sandler and Taron Egerton.

    I was surprised by that one too since she was amazing in that movie and both co-stars Kingsley and Aghdashloo got noms.

    But the Actress category was very competitive that year (many other great performances like Thurman and Wood didn’t get noms either) and she was fresh from her win so maybe there was no hurry to nominate her again.

    Sandra Oh being the only part of the core four cast of Sideways not to gain any tract anywhere, despite giving an outstanding performance, feels kinda shitty.

    They won SAG ensemble and she was the only one without an individual nomination.
