Now that they’re out, this can make us happy or disappointed and certainly both. What are some of your favorite films overlooked for Oscar consideration?
Wonder Woman. Not so surprising, but disappointing.
Cloud Atlas. Still my favorite film of that year.
Bowfinger. No screenplay nod at the very least?
Galaxy Quest. Lighten up academy.
Miller’s Crossing. Not for the score, the cinematography, the costumes, and nothing for John Turturro.
“Don’t Look Now”. What did they have against Nicholas Roeg? And that cast and screenplay.
“Frankenstein” 1931. Pardon?
Lots of others. Thoughts?

Paddington 2 (i know it’s next year, but we all know it won’t get anything, though i’m praying to God for Picture/Screenplay/Grant nominations)
We Need to Talk About Kevin (Swinton and Miller both should have been nominated)
Crimson Peak (i’m talking specifically about costumes)
Synecdoche, New York
Hairspray (love that movie)
The Thing (for visual effects at the very least)
The Past (i would reward Bejo, over Blanchett for Blue Jasmine)

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix!
Should have been nominated/won for Best Supporting Actress – Staunton
Best Adapted Screenplay – 870 pgs in a 2.5 hour movie! Insane!
Production Design – for the ministry alone.. especially that final battle!
It was nominated for nothing!

Detroit and mother!February 6, 2018 at 7:54 pm #1202488920
Glad to see the love for mother! – not sure where I’d nominate it though.
J. Edgar (DiCaprio is far better here than in The Aviator), Deadpool, and Fahrenheit 9/11 should have all been nominated.
Kill Bill Vol. 1 not receiving a single nomination, despite being a bonafide masterpiece is a travesty through and through. The films have aged incredibly well, and given what we now know was endured during its making, it’s a real shame Uma Thurman wasn’t acknowledged by the Academy for her tour-de-force portrayal of ‘The Bride’, which remains an acting benchmark for me. She conveyed her loss, rage, determination and vulnerability so strikingly, and viscerally, that the end game of killing Bill always felt much bigger than killing Bill.
Granted, 2003 was an extremely competitive year for Best Actress, but as much as I adore Keaton, I would have given Thurman her spot without hesitation.February 6, 2018 at 8:03 pm #1202488925This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.February 6, 2018 at 8:20 pm #1202488933
Wind River, Jeremy Renner would have made a more deserving nominee than Washington, imo.
