See A Video Tribute to Those Snubbed by the 85th Academy Awards

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?

I dont agree with all of these, but one i can whole heartily agree with is cloud atlas got completely snubbed, i mean the least they could have done was best original score! seriously just listen to it!

Even though I think the score was at parts amazing, especially the Cloud Alas sextet, it felt out of place in some scenes

Well, I agree with most of them but; Rise of the Guardians? Seriously,

THE GREY would have fit so well with the GG's. But it has not a chance at the Oscars...

What constitutes a 'snub'? Was The Grey really 'snubbed'? Was TDKR really 'snubbed'? Should Matthew McConaughey really have been nominated for Magic Mike? Pretty subjective.... I want to make a mashup of the movies that were snubbed from getting a snub!

movies snubbed for getting snubbed ? would'nt that also be subjective ? If U want to get technical, even what was chosen was, in the end, subjective

No love for Safety not guaranteed? And Beasts of the southern wild had probably the most beautiful score of the year! No way in hell the kid in Life of Pi deserved a nom, come on...

The Queen of Versailles (Documentary), Pieta (Foreign Language Film, Best Actress), Amour (Best Actor), Django Unchained (Best Song)! Personally I hated Silver Linings Playbook they could have taken that one out completely and made room for many other great films mentioned in the clip that were ignored.

Great video--congrats. Of course this is why all other award shows are the stepchild of Oscar. Thaks, anyway.

HAHAHAHAHAHA The Dark Knight Rises for Best Picture...And I thought my jokes were bad

For the most part, I could live with the nominations. I wasn't a fan of Argo or Lincoln, but I knew they would get nominated (I expected more for Argo, as did everyone ever), but what really pissed me off was the lack of Best Score for Cloud Atlas and Beasts... Same for the Rick Ross track for Best Song from Django.... The categories I thought I would care the least about.

So TDKR is snubbed but The Avengers isn't?

John Hawkes in the Sessions - magnificent

Highest grossing documentary of the year. 4th highest grossing documentary of all time. Nowhere in sight on the list. Snub much?

Well, at least this year Leo can actually enjoy the Academy Awards. For once he doesn't have to sit there, desperately hopeful, just to get a kick in the balls again when someone else wins "his" Oscar.

Well this year finally makes it OFFICIAL, the golden globes dont mean shit

maybe they should play this at the oscars. just because a movie doesn't get an oscar nomination DOES NOT mean it isn't worth seeing. I like those "good movies you probably haven't seen " lists. let's have more of those
