Cool Videos: Snubbed 2013 - JoBlo.com's Oscar Tribute to those who were left off the ballot

Jan. 16, 2013by: Paul Shirey

Our man, Nick Bosworth, has created yet another masterful compilation, this time featuring the biggest snubs of the Oscar's this year, showcasing the numerous films and talent left off the ballot, such as Kathryn Bigelow for ZERO DARK THIRTY, MOONRISE KINGDOM for best picture, Leonardo DiCaprio for best supporting actor, Ben Affleck for best director, THE MASTER for best picture, and RISE OF THE GUARDIANS for best animated film, amongst many others.  It's a solid round up of snubs and although some selections may not vibe with your personal taste, the further you get into the video, the more you realize just how many worthy films were left off the table.

In the long run, the Oscar's is Hollywood awarding itself, so the people's opinion really doesn't matter a lick to the Academy, but from the outside looking in it can be interesting to see just what Hollywood deems to be the best vs. what the people do.  I think that's probably the biggest allure of the Oscars.

Get snubbed:

Extra Tidbit: If you could put any one of these films or talent on the ballot, who would it be? Me, I'd put Moonrise Kingdom on for Best Picture, followed by Kathryn Bigelow for best director.

That Was Awesome

Great video, I'm absolutely livid the Academy hasn't awarded Paul Thomas Anderson for any of his films and the Master is no exception. To not even be nominated is ridiculous.

SKYFALL? really? get the fuck out. 'Cinematography'--Roger Deakins, that'd i get behind.
Dark Knight Rises? hardly. Maybe 'Best Score'
The Grey?? lol c'mon now, don't be ridiculous.
Clearly, the biggest and truest snub was Ben Affleck's nom for Best Director. maybe John Hawkes as well. but that's it.

Moonrise Kingdom not getting a nod for Best Picture was a sin. There was one more spot. Why leave it out?! Also, it totally deserved one for Art Direction and Score. Total baloney.

I would have loved to see Jack Black for Bernie. I Think its one of the top 3 performances of the year. Just a wonderful film altogether (oddly enough). The video was great! So many big snubs this year.

Unlike most years I'm generally pretty pleased with this year's line-up. There is no reason why all the Supporting Actors had to be past winners. I personally was hoping Samuel Jackson would get it, because Stephen was the most interesting thing I've seen him do since "Black Snake Moan." But I've come to make peace with Affleck, Tarantino, and Bigelow all having been nominated in at least one category (plus, they all have an Academy Award for something, but then so do Lee and Spielberg).

And Moonrise Kingdom definitely deserved more. But then often my favorite movies only get a nod in the screenplay category (see "In Bruges," "Before the Devil Knows You're Dead," "In the Loop," and "Borat").

The Grey?

Really, i havent seen it but i can't imagine it being good enough for a Best Picture nomination.

And finally i'm glad to see someone else recognize Dwight Henry for Supporting Actor.

I agree with some of these but I think the main Question is who shouldn't of been nominated who was then?

REALLY

the dark knight rises for best picture,i don't think so.Now flight on the other hand totally got snubbed for best picture.And if your going to pick movies like dark knight rises,skyfall and cloud atlas for best picture then why not also the avengers cause that belongs in the same category basically.

It's merely a combination of very talented filmmakers who weren't voted in for one reason or another. Personally I would replace a few of the Best Supporting Actor nominees with choices from the tribute but that's just me and everyone else can decide that for themselves. This tribute is just a remembrance of simply great work.

Great Vid

I agree with most (at elast based on the movies I've seen). I especially agree with Cloud Atlas. How that movie got 0 noms is baffling. At least Adapted Screenplay and Editing. Not to mention the wonderful costumes and production design. 6 different time periods c'mon!

Well made - but same wrong perception everyone else has

Of course, everyone has an actor, writer, director, composer etc. he'd rather see at the oscars. But keep in mind
There is a restrice number of nominees, and for everyone you want to see nominated someone else is not getting a nomination. This video alone list more supporting actors than possible., and not counting the real nominees that deserve the nomination.

That's the problem when people talk about snubs: I always hear: "This guy should have been nominated". But that implies that somone

Of course I was surprised that Bigelow and Affleck (the most prominent snubs) didn't make the cut (and they definitely deserved it) but so doe Zeitlin, and Russel and Ang Lee and Haneke and Spielberg!

Bigelow and Affleck didn't deserve to be left out - they deserved a nomination... Just to make that part clear (I was typing to fast I guess)
