Not a frontrunner per se but I’m pretty sure that The Truman show was supposed to be a lock for BP and BA nom.January 25, 2018 at 3:16 am #1202478058
Although not a frontrunner but Marion Cotillard was snubbed for Rust and Bone.January 25, 2018 at 3:21 am #1202478062
Emma Thompson in Saving Mr. Banks.January 25, 2018 at 3:24 am #1202478063
Jane was snubbed the other day.June 13, 2018 at 7:27 pm #1202565044
– Weren’t Kate Winslet and Emma Stone (fresh off her La La Land win) considered frontrunners last year only for them and their movies to end up completely flopping ? The fact that Robbie happened out of nowhere over them
– Obviously La La Land. It looked like one of the strongest frontrunners in Oscar history, the movie to beat. It was so overhyped as an Oscar sweeper that it ended up ruining it come Oscar night (thx god)
– The Post also lost all of its steam for some reason I don’t understand, since it pretty much hit all the Oscar boxes right. Oscar bait plot, Oscar bait lead actors, Oscar bait ensemble cast, Oscar bait production design, Oscar bait director etc. In the end : only a BP nom + the obvious Streep nomination. Even the Blind Side did better likeJune 13, 2018 at 7:42 pm #1202565057
remember Gd said that shit was locked up and then it ended up missing the shortlist lolJune 13, 2018 at 8:10 pm #1202565070

DREAMGIRLS was called a winner here on GoldDerby early on. Didn’t they go to Cannes and show a preview? And even then talk continued about it winning.
Of course at that point The Departed, Little Miss Sunshine, Babel weren’t a thing. The Queen wouldn’t have been anybody’s early choice. Letters from Iwo Jima was a very late entry.
Then people still thought it would at least be nominated.
Considering this is GoldDerby and that people aren’t really answering to the thread but to everybody who’s been snubbed, I’m surprised nobody has mentioned CAROL.June 14, 2018 at 8:56 am #1202565307
Amy Adams for ArrivalJune 14, 2018 at 9:50 am #1202565349
Amy Adams wasn’t the frontrunner and neither was Kate Winslet last year. If we were talking huge snubs that no one excepted but were not the frontrunners in the slightest, then most of these answers would suffice.June 14, 2018 at 11:16 am #1202565452
Wasn’t Sorkin for Jobs the actual front runner for adapted screenplayJune 14, 2018 at 5:58 pm #1202565754
Julianne Moore was an odd omission for “A Single Man”
and going way back it was kind of shocking Debra Winger didn’t get nominated for “Urban Cowboy.” That was considered a star making performance.
