When the Oscar nominees were announced, people were surprised that some of their top picks didn't make the list. JoBlo has now put together a video highlighting some of the biggest snubs.
Ben Affleck (Argo), Quentin Tarantino (Django Unchained) and Kathryn Bigelow (Zero Dark Thirty) should have been nominated for Best Director, Leonardo DiCaprio (Django Unchained), Samuel L. Jackson (Django Unchained) and Javier Bardem (Skyfall) were fan favorites for a Best Supporting Actor nomination, and "Cloud Atlas" and "Beasts of the Southern Wild" seemed destined to receive a nomination for Original Score. But none of that happened.
Take a look at the video below and let us know which films and people should or should not have been nominated. The Oscars will air on ABC on February 24th.
and the zero dark thirty script was writing years before the event go figure, all these war films are propaganda and lies, even the sandy hook thing is turning out to be a fake event put together to take the guns off americans check out sandy hoax videos on youtube.

Jason Clarke was the best thing in Zero Dark Thirty. It was a decent procedural thriller with a good cast.
The question I had after I finished watching it was - why was it necessary? Aside from "we wanted to celebrate these amazing unsung heroes" bulllsh*t and "we f*cking love the awards"?

Lol the whole time I'm watching all I could think of is how The Grey was my biggest snub of the year. And then the clip ends with it. God I couldn't agree more. That might be my favorite film next to Django this year. They should have rereleased it in the fall so voters could remember it for awards season.

"Killing them softly" - Best Adapted screenplay? I guess we were watching different movies with the JoBlo guy.
Suraj Sharma wasn't nominated because there can only be one newcomer and "Beasts" kid was cuter.
"Grey" is too bare-bones to be an Oscar movie. Though it will have a long life, very solid movie.

"Video: Which Films Were Snubbed by the Oscars?"
Uh, those which neither won nor were nominated?
Is this a trick question, Alex?

Looks like Dustin is off his (gay) rocker again, which I shall now call 'The Freddie' henceforth, comparing The Last Stand to Django Unchained and then alluding cynically to Newtown and America's gun culture, or so it would appear.

Well. It looks like joblo has got his head way too far up his own ass.
