Poll Results: Biggest Oscar Snub

Out of many, many possible choices, here’s what you guys selected as this year’s biggest Oscar snub:

Moonrise Kingdom

– “Moonrise Kingdom” for Best Picture: 7 votes
– Ben Affleck for “Argo” (directing): 6 votes
– “The Dark Knight Rises” for Anything: 4 votes
– “The Master” for Best Picture: 3 votes
– Paul Thomas Anderson for “The Master“: 3 votes
– Kathryn Bigelow for “Zero Dark Thirty“: 2 votes
– Leonardo DiCaprio for “Django Unchained“: 2 votes
– Quentin Tarantino for “Django Unchained“: 2 votes
– “The Intouchables” for Best Foreign Language Film: 2 votes
– John Hawkes for “The Sessions“: 1 vote
– Marion Cotillard for “Rust and Bone“: 1 vote

The write-ins:
Looper or Cloud Atlas for ANYTHING: 1 vote (shocked at these snubs myself)

Last year was a pretty strong year for films, and the Academy could have easily rounded the Best Picture nominations to an even ten — whether it’s Moonrise Kingdom, The Master or otherwise. Sticking with “just” nine is a bit of a head-scratcher, and many of these other snubs are glaring as well. I must say I am happier with this year’s nominations compared to those from 2011, but there’s still plenty to complain about as always.

This Week’s Poll: Last week I posted my top 10 films from 2012. Since I already highlighted my best of the year, I would like to hear *your* thoughts. What is your personal favorite from my top 10 list? In order to further diversify the results, I am allowing two votes.

Have a great week everyone!

    Looper was pretty good, and I just finally saw Cloud Atlas, it was really good although I have a particular issue with it. I am also reading the book, which is really good so far.

    Oslo, Take This Waltz and Killer Joe I added to my 2011 list(going by IMDb year), but realize most didn’t see until 2012(myself included).
    For the poll, I went with The Master and The Imposter.

    Pretty amazed The Dark Knight Rises got
    zero, Zimmer’s score was worth a nom.

    I think they have some percentage rule – that if the film didn’t appear on sufficient number of ballots it’s not getting nominated. Silly rule, I think it cost The Master BP nomination. My fav from your top 10 is tDKR, which is still my number 1 of the year πŸ™‚

    I voted for Ben Affleck for β€œArgo” but yeah, I think Moonrise Kingdom deserves a nom. As for this week’s poll, one of my favorites is not listed there so I picked Argo and TDKR πŸ™‚

  5. Jaina says:

    Thought Looper was one of the most original films of last year. Such a shame that originality can’t at least be recognised with a nom.

    Voted on TDKR and Argo this time around. Two of my faves of last year.
