I was recently watching Far From Heaven (excellent movie, btw) and I noticed that Dennis Quaid had a globe and SAG nomination, plus won some critics, but didn’t seem to make it in. We were also recently mentioning Cameron Diaz’s three misses to the line-up. Same with Jackie Brown’s star Pam Grier.
Can you think of other examples? and why do you think they missed the line-up that year? It’s also interesting to note that this occurs mostly with supporting categories.May 29, 2013 at 11:42 am #102390
Nicole Kidman in “The Paperboy” and “To Die For”

Marion Cotillard for “Rust and Bone” got the SAG and GG nominations but missed the Academy Award nomination.May 29, 2013 at 12:19 pm #102392
Marion Cotillard for “Rust and Bone” got the SAG and GG nominations but missed the Academy Award nomination.
It’s funny how Cotillard and Swinton won oscars in 2007 and both suffered the same oscar snub two years in a row.May 29, 2013 at 12:23 pm #102393
(^)Swinton and Hawkes are some recent examples. Theres also Scarlett Johannsen who had The Girl with the Pearl Earing and Lost in Translation in the same year. They both got her Globe and BAFTA nominations with the second even getting her the BAFTA win aswell as a few critics wins. Supposedly it was blamed on category confusion but almost all of her prizes were in lead so I think age (She was only 17) was also a big factorMay 29, 2013 at 12:40 pm #102394
I didn’t know that about Scarlett Johannsen! That has to hurt.
Same with John Hawkes! I would have replaced Denzel Washington.May 29, 2013 at 1:20 pm #102395
I don’t think Scarlett Johansson’s age was a problem, because she has always seemed mature for her age, physically as well as the way she carries herself as an actress/person. I didn’t even realize she was still a teenager at the time, and I’m sure a lot of other people thought the same too. Some of her critics’ groups nominations were in supporting, and I do think category confusion did play a bit of a role. If it wasn’t such a boderline case, I think she would have easily been nominated.May 29, 2013 at 1:25 pm #102396
The most shocking one in recent years was Paul Giamatti for Sideways.
Literally nobody saw that snub comimng. He was an absolute slam dunk. Still makes no sense.May 29, 2013 at 2:25 pm #102397
Sally Hawkins won the big three (New York, LA, NSFC) as well as a globefor Happy Go Lucky. No Oscar nomination.
Steve Martin also received some major critics awards from All of Me & Roxanne and failed to gain a nomination for either.
BIll Murray swept the major critics awards for Rushmore – no Oscar nod.May 29, 2013 at 3:58 pm #102398
I would have replaced Denzel Washington.
Of course you would have.May 29, 2013 at 4:20 pm #102399
^ Lol what an asinine comment…. You should just stop while you’re ahead.
I find Denzel Washington to be a one-note actor and extremely overrated. However that’s just my personal opinion and whether you agree or not does not concern me.May 29, 2013 at 5:31 pm #102400
[quote=”Boogawooga”] I would have replaced Denzel Washington.
Of course you would have. [/quote]
I would have replaced him too John Hawkes was incredible. Nothing wrong with preferring one performance over another.
Also Zhang Ziyi got a Globe, Bafta, and SAG nomination for Memoirs of a Geisha but still missed out on the Oscar nom.
And kt1990, I remember being very surprised when I found out she was only 17 when they made the movie but I didn’t realize other people had had the same thought so you’re probably right then. I always think of her and Diaz as similar in that they both had a couple very good shots at a nom very close together relatively early in their careers, but since then have kind of just been pushed into movie star roles. Hopefully Diaz will get back to being considered a great actress this year (not to say she isn’t, just that a lot of people don’t see her that way. the miscast comments for The Counselor actually get me really excited to see it)May 29, 2013 at 6:25 pm #102401
I always thought that the Cotillard and Swinton coincidence was odd, too. And meanwhile Bardem and Day-Lewis have already managed nominations/wins since then.

You’re so not offended. Whatever.
