"The Butler" Leads Nominees In Oscarless Awards - The Snubby Awards

See also

The nominations for the Academy Awards were announced today and with every delight came a snub. Some of this year’s front runners will not competing for Oscars.

Perhaps it’s because some movies were released just too long ago the Academy doesn’t remember them (“42” and “The Butler”). Some movies just didn’t make it because they didn’t pass the selection committees final choices (“The Past”) or worst yet, their country didn’t put them up for consideration (“Blue is the Warmest Color”).

To give the overlooked talent their due for being ignored by Oscar, I have made the first ever Snubby Award nominations – for the buzzed about movies and performances that surprisingly didn’t make the final cut.

And the Oscar doesn’t go to…
