    Life Itself

    It was heartbreaking when that movie missed.

    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.

    Although not a frontrunner but Marion Cotillard was snubbed for Rust and Bone.

    – 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 like

    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.

    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.

    Wasn’t Sorkin for Jobs the actual front runner for adapted screenplay

    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.
