Where The Wild Things Are got snubbed for almost everything: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Original Score, Best Art Direction. It didn't even get something for special effects.
I agree with you here. Where the Wild Things Are was a quiet but great movie in a lot of ways.
Two overlooked films I thought deserved to be included in the category of Best Adapted Screenplay - Fantastic Mr. Fox and Where the Wild Things Are. An Education and Precious were both hugely overrated and not particularly well written.
I also new it wasn't going to happen, but I really wish The Invention of Lying got a writing nomination as well.
And Tilda Swinton in Julia was the best performance of the year - she was so cheated.
Invictus tanked, and received too many "fair" reviews from too many major critics. A lot of times, if a movie fails to garner a lot of attention, the studio will usually be skeptical about putting too much more promotion (resulting in more money) behind it as far as touting it as an oscar contender to the academy. It rather go with a more successful oscar worthy movie that it has faith in, like that Sandra Bullock movie "The Blind Side". Warner produced both off these movies.
i was going to mention some of your suggestion in my oscar predictions. where in part 2, i was going to list oscar snubbs. however, since nobody seems to care to list actual opinions here. lol. I'll just come up with them on my own. lol. oh well, it's like the joker said in "The Dark Knight", "if you want something done right, you have to do everything yourself." lol.

i just wanted to say thanks to everyone the participated in this forum but i finally have all the info i need on the oscar nominations, so I won't be taking anymore suggestions for snubs. thanks everyone for being so nice to offer up some of your suggestions. thanks.
Okay, I need your help here. As some of you may know, the oscars are just around the corner, and I have yet to release a oscar prediction hubs, as I still have a few more movies to review first. However, while I'm...
Okay, with the nominations already announced, who do you think got snubbed this year for the Oscars? By the way, I just wanted to let you all know that if you guys list a suggestion in this thread, then there's a...
