The Oscars are so close that I could smell the excitement. And this Thursday is all about movies that were snubbed for their rightful Oscar statue. Here are three of the ones that came to mind first.
We talked about this in our Across the Universe Podcast’s 67th episode in January, so you can listen to me, Nik and Sofia rant about it. The Social Network deserved it. Not only should it have won Best Picture, it should have also won Best Director. To be snubbed in both categories, was probably the biggest and the most horrific Oscar snub in history.
This is another really awful snub that I don’t even want to think about. I liked Crash, but I also think it was overrated, and Brokeback Mountain should have won Best Picture instead. At least Ang Lee got that well deserved Best Director win.
Jumping from Best Picture to Best Art Directing because I just realised that Pride & Prejudice was nominated for 4 Oscars and it won none! I’m outraged! It is the most beautiful film, it has stunning performances and who the fuck even talks about Memoirs of a Geisha!? Nobody, because it doesn’t stand the test of time. More than 10 years later, and I would still watch Pride & Prejudice in awe, and I’ve already seen it too many times to count. Pride & Prejudice deserved better, it deserved an Oscar. Hell, it deserved at least two!
