It has been a week. The scars are still fresh, but they’re beginning to heal. Of course, we’re talking about the Academy Award nominations. Specifically, the snubs that went down. For today’s query, we want to know which specific Oscar snub really got your goat. Was there one that especially felt painful? We’re all ears.
Obviously, one of the biggest ones was Bradley Cooper missing for “A Star Is Born” in Best Director. That snub was a complete shock. Then, there was Emily Blunt missing in both Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress. Neither her turn in “Mary Poppins Returns” nor her work in “A Quiet Place” made the cut. The Academy seemed poised at one point to give these two not only nominations but potentially wins. They got to Cooper in other places, but Blunt is once again left out in the cold.
If you’re like a certain staff member here on the site, the snubs up and down the line for “First Man” stung. Be it in Best Film Editing, Best Original Score, Best Picture, or elsewhere, the movie fell well short of where it was expected to land. Then, there are shutouts for titles like “Beautiful Boy,” “Boy Erased,” “On the Basis of Sex,” and “Sorry To Bother You,” just to name a few. Each has big-time Oscar hopes during the year, but they all came up short in the end.
You’ve had a week to recover. Now, we want to pick at the wound a bit. Which snub last week hurt the most? Let us know!
