    Samuel L. Jackson in Django Unchained. This to me was the biggest no-brainer, a very interesting character and performance that was just completely ignored. Would have been a great time to honor his career… come to think of it, it would’ve been a great time to give Tarantino a lifetime achievement Best Director Oscar too! Movie made a boatload of cash and they gave him screenplay… seems kind of crazy he wasn’t even nominated.

    Definitely most of the PARASITE cast but particularly Cho Yeo-jeong and Song Kang-ho.

    Ashton Sanders, MOONLIGHT

    Jake Gyllenhaal, NIGHTCRAWLER

    Ralph Fiennes, THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL

    Barbara Hershey, BLACK SWAN and HANNAH & HER SISTERS

    Naomi Watts, MULHOLLAND DRIVE

    Steve Buscemi, GHOST WORLD and FARGO

    John Turturro, QUIZ SHOW and BARTON FINK

    Mercedes Ruehl, MARRIED TO THE MOB

    Dennis Hopper, BLUE VELVET (instead of his HOOSIERS nom)

    Robert Duvall, NETWORK

    John Cazale, DOG DAY AFTERNOON

    Robert Shaw, JAWS

    Those two 1975 snubs have to be amongst the worst ever… especially when they nominated Chris Sarandon for Dog Day. Over John Cazale??? Fuck that. Cazale getting snubbed in 1974 for Godfather II might be my most unforgivable snub in that category of all time (De Niro should have been in LEAD, he’s definitely a co-lead – Pacino is THE lead – but he’s the star of his section of the movie. Category fraud’s been around forever….)

    Seeing Gladiator for the first time years later, I was pretty surprised to see that Connie Nielsen got basically ZERO traction for Best Supporting actress. Not only is she very good, and honestly probably the most complex character in the movie (between Crowe’s stoic hero and Phoenix’s villain), but she was in a movie that ended up winning Best Picture and getting two acting nominations and a win. So for her to not even seem to get buzz is a bit shocking.

    Also a shame that Yeri Han got NO buzz for Minari, considering how well that movie did elsewhere. IMO she was just as good if not better than Steven Yeun.

    I think category confusion hurt her! IMO she’s the Lead of the movie (she’s the only character who really goes through any sort of arc) but considering her limited screentime I understand the urge to consider her supporting, so I think that cost her any buzz.

    Vicky Krieps – Phantom Thread

    Shoulda won Best Actress that year!

    There’s so many over time. Too many too choose, although one that always baffles me off the top of my head is how Diane Keaton got no love for The Godfather films.

    For last year, my picks would be Olivia Cooke, Delroy Lindo and Han Ye-ri. All very strange omissions, to be basically totally shut out of even the discussion for nominations by the time they came around. Other recent picks – there are the standards like the cast of Parasite, Dafoe in The Lighthouse and Hawke in First Reformed given all their films got nods. Plus, Stuhlbarg in CMBYN, Letts in Lady Bird, Hoult in The Favourite, De Niro in The Irishman and Kulig in Cold War.
