The 2012 Oscars have come and gone, but what about other movies that should have been nominated??? I call them “Snubs by Snobs”! These are onomeister’s 2012 snubs by the Acadamy that should have definitely been considered, and you should definitely consider seeing sometime…

  • J. Edgar – Leonardo DiCaprio’s acting was superb as the head of the FBI, although makeup didn’t help much when making him look old.
  • The Adventures of Tintin – Nevermind Spielberg was the director, this should have beaten at least two nominated animated films that are questionable.
  • Super 8 – Steven Spielberg and J.J. Abrams deliver this fun popcorn / sci-fi movie.
  • Drive – Ryan Gosling is deserving a Best Actor nom for this Tarantino-style art-house action flick, and Albert Brooks is excellent in his role.
  • The Cave of Forgotten Dreams – A must-see documentary if you have a 3D HDTV. Director Werner Herzog got so snubbed!
  • Hanna – A story of a 16 year old assassin, Kill Bill fans should enjoy this movie.
  • The Interrupters – A documentary about stopping gang violence by having them talk to each other instead of pulling guns on each other – what an novel idea!
  • Shame – Michael Fassbender was critically acclaimed for his acting, but they say the snub was due to the movie’s NC-17 parental rating.
