I didn't mean the she was snubbed, i was just saying that for she made some performances, some movies, good enough to help her when people think she is worthy of an honor.
A bit like Marion, she wasn't snubbed for Nine, Midnight in Paris or Inception. But she was very good in those three films with many people praising her work and for the last two her movies. Public Enemies, Contagion and the Dark Knight Rises were also good performances.
Nothing worthy of an oscar (although i really feel she should have been nominated instead of Cruz but that's my opinion) but movies with enough praises & sucess to keep her on Hollywood radar and a few critics nomination and almost everytime on BAFTA longlist.
I'm just saying Watts was really good in King Kong, The Painted Veil , Mother and Child & Eastern Promises & really good in Mulholland Drive & fantastic in 21 Gramms. She did some bad movies too but i never thought she was bad in them.
That doesn't garantee her anything for sure, just more support than most newcomers & extra critics raves when she is felt worthy of them.
