Last year, after the Oscars were handed out for the year in film that was 2011, a little video arrived highlighting those that were snubbed by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences by not even getting a nomination. This time, another one of those videos has arrived, but in a little more timely manner, following last week's announcement of the nominees for the 85th Annual Academy Awards, which will be announced live on ABC on February 24th. If you read our list of some of the biggest snubs and surprises, many will sound very familiar, and there's a couple that are certainly divisive inclusions. Watch!
Here's Snubbed 2013: An Oscar Tribute from Nick Bosworth over at JoBlo:
All of these are right on the money from Leonardo DiCaprio and Samuel L. Jackson in Django Unchained to the screenplay nominations for The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Looper. Obviously not all of these options can be nominated as there's only five slots (for the most part) for any given award. The supporting actor categories was actually one of the most crowded, in addition to Best Director (it's clear Ben Affleck is now the biggest snub after he won Best Director at the Golden Globes and Argo landed Best Picture Drama). Plus there's some praise for The Grey. But for me, the two that people will likely agree or disagree with vehemently are the lack of nominations for both The Dark Knight Rises and Cloud Atlas, two of the most divisive films of the year. Any other big snubs this year?
