    Since 2003 (when the Critics Choice began choosing nominees), there have been six performances that hit every precursor (Golden Globes, SAG, Critics Choice, and BAFTA) but still missed out on Oscar morning. Which of these shocking snubs was the most egregious?

    Choosing between Adams and Gyllenhaal is hard but I’ll go with Jake because, in my opinion, he should have won.

    The worst for me was Tilda Swinton in We Need To Talk About Kevin.

    But from the list I vote Jake Gyllenhaal in Nightcrawler. He had (alongside Michael Keaton) the best performance that year. Absolutely phenomenal. Really don’t understand what happened…

    Amy Adams and Emma Thompson getting snubbed was equally heartbreaking but not as shocking as Jake or Tilda.

    The real answer is Marion Cotillard – Rust and Bone.

    Yeah, the list is incomplete, as I would agree the hardest to swallow was Cotillard’s.

    From this list, however, I suppose I would go with Adams. Ironically, I had no problem with any from the list being snubbed lol.

    Adams & Hanks purely because they were in BP nominated films whilst everyone else would’ve been there films only nomination.

    Adams. She was the reason for the BP nod, and they had the nerve to snub her. The only silver lining is that it strengthened her overdue narrative.

    The two left off the list (accidentally I presume?), Swinton and Cotillard, were the best and most upsetting when they missed out on the nomination, although Cotillard’s snub was somewhat ameliorated by Emmanuelle Riva getting in (they couldn’t possibly have more than one foreign-language performance in a single category, heaven forbid!)

    I have to confess I felt rather unemotional about the snubs listed in the poll, even if I did find some of them more deserving than others who pipped them to the post.

    My mistake, I totally missed Cotillard’s run! So sorry for the oversight.

    u forgot DiCaprio – The Departed + Winslet – Revolutionary Road as well, even if those were technicalities.
