    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.

    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.

    Speaking of The Color Purple, Desreta Jackson as younger Celie was snubbed. She was magical.

    There are those “occasional” performances that get snubed and leave every Oscar pundit upset… But then there are those actors who seem to have to work harder and harder in order to get some love from the AMPAS, no matter how consistent their work is! Big stars’ performances that were weirdly unrecognized (and 2 names still are Oscar “nominationless”):

    Sidney PoitierA Raisin in the Sun (1961), A Patch of Blue (1966), Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner (1967) and In the Heat of the Night (1967)

    Robert RedfordButch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969), The Candidate (1972), Brubaker (1980) and All Is Lost (2013)

    Nicole KidmanTo Die For (1995), Cold Mountain (2003), Birth (2004), The Paperboy (2012), Boy Erased and Destroyer (2018)

    Cameron DiazThere’s Something About Mary (1998) (maybe not an “Oscar role” but she’s excellent and she got the NYFCC for Best Actress), Being John Malkovich (1999), Vanilla Sky (2001), Gangs of New York (2002) and In Her Shoes (2005)

    Jim Carrey The Truman Show (1998), Man on the Moon (1999) and The Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind (2004)

    Scarlett Johansson Lost in Translation (2003), Girl with a Pearl Earring (2003), Match Point (2005), Her (2013) and Under the Skin (2014) (maybe too arthouse, but it was a “weak Best Actress race”)

    Trimming my choices to performances who have not received nominations from major critics, awards season precursors and the Oscars.

    Keira Knightley in Anna Karenina

    Alan Rickman in Harry Potter film series but most especially in Half Blood-Prince and Deathly Hallows: Part II

    Audrey Tatou in A Very Long Engagement

    Andrea Riseborough in W./E.

    Gong Li in Memoirs of a Geisha (Though she won the NBR but I thought she deserved more)

    Great performances. I can’t understand how Knightley was so overlooked… She was terrific and the part suited her beautifully. Not even a Golden Globe or BAFTA nod…!
    As for Gong Li… Well, not a great movie, but I don’t know how the Academy passed a chance to finally recognize her after an amazing 90’s run. The movie got lots of love in bellow the line categories, so it was seen… A mistery to me
