    Watched “The Lighthouse” last night and was absolutely blown away by his performance. Why in the (expletive) wasn’t he nominated for an Academy Award? https://xender.vip/ It looks like the film was nominated for best cinematography, but can anyone explain this obvious snub (in my opinion)? Is there a tendency not to nominate horror movies in general? Is there some kind of history between the Academy and Dafoe I’m unaware of?

    There’s just a horror bias. They don’t like nominating horror performances.

    The Academy has nominated Dafoe multiple times before, so yeah, I think it was just horror bias (+ fatigue from previous nomination)

    He gave one of the greatest performances in cinema history.

    The Lighthouse is a niche film that you either love or hate. The story probably didn’t appeal to most voters.

    Dafoe & Pattinson should’ve been nominated.

    Dafoe was amazing and better than all of the other supporting contenders, but he should’ve been placed in lead.

    Pattinson was also fantastic, but undeniably overshadowed by Dafoe.

    Dafoe (and Song Kang-Ho from Parasite) were WAY better than all of their competition that year.

    I can’t speak for Dafoe because I haven’t seen the movie but the guy from Parasite was average, I didn’t see anything special in that performance.

    One of the best performances I’ve ever seen. It’s their loss.

    Yes, he was pretty brilliant in this film! It’s only because of the genre he was never in danger of actually awards recognition.

    This is one of the best films I’ve seen lately. One that gives you tingles. Defoe and Pattinson both should have been nominated along with the screenplay and directing, and it should have won cinematography over 1917 although a challenge one year after Roma.

    Bill Hader and Barry in everything (2 babka)
    The Great - Elle Fanning, Nicholas Hoult and comedy writing and directing

    Severance in drama series, writing, Adam Scott for best actor, Ben Stiller for drama directing, and the whole cast in supporting.
