Oscar Snubs of 2014

    Here ye! Here ye!  Another year has arrived, and it's time to talk about Oscar snubs of 2014.  Here's how this works.  As most of my readers know, I usually like to do an Oscar wrap up after the academy awards.  During this wrap up, we talk about who the winners are, and who the oscar snubs were.  this is where you come in.  From now all the way until March 12, you can list who you think got snubbed out of a well deserved oscar nomination in this forum, and even post who you think should've won after march 2 (when the oscars officially airs on tv),  In doing so, I'll mention whatever suggestions you make, while even mentioning your screen name on here (which will be set up to where if anyone clicks on your name, then it'll lead to your profile); hence you get free promotion on hubpages.

    Anyways, I should warn you that I'm only going to take suggestions up until the very end of march 12.  Meaning that once the clock hits 12:00 am central time in the usa (making it officially march 13), then I won't be taking anymore suggestions after that.  if you guys still want to talk about oscar snubs after the deadline in this forum, then that's fine.  Just don't expect me to keep adding your name onto the hub after the deadline.

    Also please try to keep these suggestions serious because if you mention something like "We're the Millers" should've gotten nominated for "Best Picture", then chances are I'm just going to think that you're kidding, and not take it that seriously. 

    Anyways, I just want to thank everyone in advance for participating, and i look forward to reading some of your suggestions. thank you.

    With the Woody Allen/Dylan Farrow dispute so prominent in entertainment news last month, I'm sure no one's surprised that Blue Jasmine was left off the best picture list. I think that counts as a snub. 

    Anyway it's nice to see Cate Blanchett get a nod for her role as Jasmine.  She's such a good actress and she was great in that movie. I wish she'd do more dark comedies like that.

      good choice.  i thought blue jasmine was a great movie too.  i still can't believe it wasn't nominated for "best picture."

        What surprises more is that The Wolf of Wall Street is up for best picture.  For me it felt like watching a 2-hour montage sequence. Too shallow -- good, but not great.

    i think Jennifer Lawrence should have gotten Best Supporting Actress. Secondly, I think Gravity got far too many awards

      okay.  tell me who should've won the awards over gravity though?  (i.e. if you feel like iron man 3 deserved best visual effects over gravity and etc)

    It's an odd thing to watch really. It's the American Movie awards, where they hand more awards to foreigners and have more foreigners presenting for random things than Americans.
    Hollywood is by far the biggest movie player in the world due to the fact that all the other English speaking countries combined (not number of English speakers but countries with English as their first language, or even the world population number whohave English as their first language) don't make close to the population of the 50 US states. I guess it's sweet that they take other languages into account too though. It just seems odd that they don't just count it as the International Movie awards and be done with it.
    Was disappointed to see no one from wee little Ireland win one, but oh well. Fassbender will get one sooner or later and U2....well U2 hardly need more silverwear.

    Best visuals, i completely agree with and editing as well. I would have given the Best Director to McQueen. the others i cannot think of right now. Just I thought it was a bit much. I know every year that they tend to fall in love with one film but I just thought it was a bit excessive and again I didn't like Gravity as much as others did. I understand it was innovative and unlike any other kind of experience but in terms of story, to be fair, it was essentially Phone Booth in space. I know that is harsh, but the fact that it is in space, the media and the mass public tend to fawn over it. Just my opinion.

      Yeah, i personally was rooting for mcqueen to win the best director nomination, but i don't mind alfonso winning it though as he did do a great job on gravity. granted, im not entirely sure ill put that film in my top ten movie list of last year, but i thought the way it was directed was very good though that i don't mind that he won.

    I thought Leo should have won Best Actor. Perhaps Matthew won because of the movie he played in. I was surprised that The Book Thief was nominated for best movie. In my opinion it deserved a nomination in this category. It did receive a nomination for best score, which counts for something but I think it wasn't enough. It was such a great movie in my opinion.

      I meant to say I was surprised that The Book Thief was not nominated for best movie...

        I personally think the guy from 12 years a slave should've won it myself, but i will admit that I did love leo's performance in "the wolf of wall street."  Although I'm a bit surprised that Emma thompson didn't get nominated for her role in saving mr. banks.  Plus, Idk about you guys, but I would've liked to have seen tom hanks get a nomination for either "captain phillips" or "saving mr. banks", as he did a great job in both movies in my opinion.
