While this year’s Oscar winners and nominees are currently out on the party circuit celebrating their wins or drinking away their sorrows, it’s time to reflect on those who didn’t even score a nomination and should have.
The guys at Joblo.com have done just that, putting together a brilliant two-minute piece entitled “Snubbed 2012: An Oscar Tribute” which is cut exactly like one of the award ceremony’s montages.
The piece gives shout-outs to the highly acclaimed films of last year who missed out entirely, or some that did get nominated but missed out on key categories. Practically everything mentioned here I would agree with, often heartily.
In fact if anything I’d make some additions – best picture for “Shame”, best direction for “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy”, best actor (Brendan Gleeson) & original screenplay for “The Guard”, best cinematography for “Melancholia”, best adapted screenplay for “Jane Eyre”, best supporting actor (Andy Serkis) for “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” and best foreign film for “The Skin I Live In”.
