I altered the thread title to more accurately reflect the conversation, which has leaned heavily to snubs rather than the upsets themselves. I also moved it to Film Lists because camille is a whinypants.
LOL, I love how placing Hawkins at #5 on my ballot and not #1 has made me gross and deserving of a ban.1
Granted, I have only seen her film once so maybe I should check it out again

I guess some of these are who you felt deserved to be nominated? I always get confused with these threads because we all interpret them differently. As an Oscarwatcher, to me, 'upset' means Angelina Jolie missing out for A Mighty Heart after making all the precursors. But not Marion Cotiard for Nine - we all knew she could not get nominated in Lead for Nine and nobody was surprised when the nominations were announced. But, if by upset, you mean, like, an outcry that she wasn't nominated because she was great, then ok.
Fassbender was not an upset, except that he is an AD favourite who actually missed several precursors including SAG...
Jolie was a snub. Sally Hawkins had some passionate support, but since she missed SAG and BAFTA, it wasn't really a snub (although personally I thought she was robbed of a nom).
This year we could have Watts or Cotillard snubs. Or almost any of the lead actors...
Lee Smith for Inception.
I can understand Nolan's snub considering the branch,or the majority of it,clearly doesn't like his work but Smith was a two-time nominee,won a lot of critics awards including BFCA and received nominations by the Bafta and ACE.Despite Nolan's snub,the film had 9 Bafta nominations(3 wins) including Best Picture and 8 Oscar nominations(4 wins) including Best Picture.
The fact that even enhances my bewilderment by the snub is that the majority of the reviews singled out the editing as what made the film what it was,a spectacle with a basic,solid script.It was probably it's most praised technical part along with Pfister's work.
A genuine head scratcher.
Yeah, I thought that Film Editing was a lock right behind The Social Network...that snub was bizarre.
Evita was snubbed for Costume Design. And The Age of Innocence was snubbed for Cinematography (among the other biggies but Michael Ballhaus getting the shaft for a movie that was so praised for it's cinematography is strange)
EVITA snubbed as it was surprised me. At the time I really thought Madonna would get an Oscar nod, and be another Hollywood celebrity with both Oscar and Razzie nods.
Hackman in The Conversation and The Royal Tenenbaums (well this to a lesser extent considering he failed to get an SAG Nomination).
