    [quote=”Vincelette”]Sally Hawkins, Julia Roberts and June Squibb lost to Lupita Nyong’o.
    Melissa McCarthy lost to Octavia Spencer.

    Hawkins and Roberts will return as nominees. And Julia has an Oscar for Best Actress. She’s not some character performer whose best chance at a second statuette is in supporting. Hawkins will have other opportunities. She’s British.[/quote]

     

    Which years?

    Paltrow over Blanchett has become a classic.

    Witherspoon over Huffman (I love Reese Witherspoon).

    Bullock over everyone else.

    Lawrence over everyone else. 

    Nicolas Cage over Sean Penn?

    Cuba Gooding Jr. over Edward Norton?

    Horrible, horrible snubs: Naomi Watts for Mulholland Drive, Sally Hawkins for Happy Go Lucky, Michael Fassbender for Shame!

    I hate how the insubstantial and middling 20 Feet from Stardom beat the more ambitious, important and compelling The Act of Killing and The Square for Documentary Feature last year.

    The result of everyone having the right to vote.

    Will always hold a grudge for Meryl Streep winning over Viola Davis

    I personally also will hold a grudge that the amazing Regina King was not nominated for her work in Ray, and Kimberly Elise being snubbed for her AMAZING work in “For Colored Girls”, it wasn’t a great film, but she was amazing in that role.

    Kate Winslet won in the right year, but for the wrong role. How was she not nominated for her far superior work in Revolutionary Road. A Film I loved.

    Marcia Gay Harden winning over Kate Hudson

    Cate Blanchett (the Aviator) winning over Natalie Portman (Closer). I never got that win. I always loved Portman’s performance more.

    The YEAR that bugged me the MOST was J-Hud winnning over the Babel woman. Still baffles me!

     @Benbraddock

       Sometimes I think you and I share the same brain. I agree with 1-9. # 10 reminded me that we have separate brains.
       Judi Dench can do no wrong in my book. Halle Berry has never registered with me until ” Monster’s Ball “.
       She had my vote, I felt her work eclipsed the other four. More than likely that was her personal best never to be
       surpassed. She reached her glass ceiling.

    Which Babel woman? Remember, two female cast members from Babel were nominated in that category that year.

     I was thrilled at Meryl’s win. It was the standout in a competive field.

     God love you for the Regina King shout-out. For some unknown reason she’s Hollywood’s best kept secret.
     No disrepect to Viola Davis mind you, but I would have given anything to see Regina in the roles
     that brought Mrs. Davis into the American consciousness. She’s a break out star just waiting to happen.

     I always enjoy Kimberly Elise’s work but she was to old for that role in ” For Colored Girls “

     I have mixed feelings about Winslet’s win. Of course I was excited for her win in ” The Reader “, but
     I took issue when she tried to double dip. She campaigned in supporting actress for  ” The Reader ”
    which was quatsch ( nonsense -rubbish ) when she was a clear cut lead. And campaigned in lead
     actress for ” Revolutionary Road “. While ” RR ” offered the showier role, the role in ” T R ” was
    more demanding in a sublime way. Winslet won for the right role. My other beef was that the
    German supporting actors had to tone down their dialects. They were actually coached to speak
    with a hint of an American dialect as to not compete with Winslet’s German accent.

    Marcia Gay Harden’s win was deserving.

    Blanchett’s win over Portman sits well with me. Portman was a great second choice but Blanchett
    had such a friggin’ high bar to meet by taking on the role of Kate the great. She rose to the occassion.

     Jennifer Hudson pretty much sang her way to an Oscar.  A good singer is basically an actor. However
    w/o the vocals her performance doesn’t really chart in my book. Had Hudson not wailed, Rinko Kikuchi
    & Adriana Barraza from ” Babel ” still weren’t going to win. That year the maid of honor was Abigail Breslin
    in ” Little Miss Sunshine “.

    Hawkins would be perfect if they ever do an Amy Winehouse biopic. If she or the film were decent at all, I could see her sweeping an awards season a la Blanchett and Moore.

    I will never understand ANY of the wins for The Artist!  A film I absolutely hated on every level!

    dujardin’s oscar should have been Clooney’s.

    Also, I hate the following:

    Paltrow over Blanchett
    English Patient over Fargo
    Crash over Brokeback
    Kings Speech over Black Swan

    Picture/Director/Lead Actor
    The Artist. I just wasn’t a fan. I look back on that year and think, “Oh yeah… The year of The Artist.” I would have given Picture to The Tree of Life or Midnight in Paris, I would have given Director to Woody Allen, and I certainly would have given Lead Actor to Brad Pitt. 

    Picture/Director
    The King’s Speech and Tom Hooper winning over The Social Network and David Fincher. In Director, Hooper easily ranked fourth, only ahead of the Coen Bros.

    Picture/Director/Adapted Screenplay
    No Country for Old Men/The Coen Bros over There Will Be Blood/Paul Thomas Anderson. I don’t mind this like I do the one above. I liked TWBB the most, but NCFOM right behind it.

    Most of my frustration is with snubbed nominations. It’s one thig to not win but at least that’s softened by being nominated. Some can’t say that…

    2014
    Gone Girl snubbed in Picture, Adapted Screenplay, and Score.

    2013
    Blue Jasmine snubbed in Picture and Director.
    – Emma Thompson/Saving Mr. Banks snubbed in Lead Actress.

    2012
    – Ben Affleck/Argo snubbed in Director.  
    – John Hawkes/The Sessions snubbed in Lead Actor.

    2011
    Take Shelter – Snubbed across the board. Snubbed in Picture, Director/Jeff Nichols, Original Screenplay/Jeff Nichols, Lead Actor/Michael Shannon, and Lead Actress/Jessica Chastain. (Granted, Lead Actress was insanely competitive.) And that it lost to The Artist? A joke.
    W/E – Madonna for Best Song (“Masterpiece”). It’s not exactly egregious, but c’mon, when is she going to ever get that close? Surely she could have taken down “Man or Muppet.” 

    2004
    – Uma Thurman/Kill Bill: Vol. 2 – My biggest Lead Actress nomination-snub ever. Ten years later and still just as heartbreaking. I would have taken out Catalina Sandina Moreno. A lineup of Swank/Bening/Staunton/Winslet/Thurman for those performances would have been the Lead Actress race of the century. 
    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind – Snubbed of noms in Picture, Director, Lead Actor, and Editing. 

    Jim Carrey in Lead Actor
    – 1998: Snubbed of a nomination for The Truman Show in a year where the winner is… Roberto Benigni.
    – 1999: Snubbed of a nomination for Man on the Moon in a year where Kevin Spacey wins a second.  
    – 2004: See above.
