Post-Oscar Embarrassments

Movies and People that Didn't Win, but Should have... or Did, but Shouldn't have

As always, the Oscars produce cries that the wrong movie/talent won.  But what are the worst snubs of all time? (Well, at least the last few decades. -Ed.) My list, below. Feel free to add your own, in Comments, at the bottom of the page.

Francis Ford Coppola lost best director for Godfather, to Bob Fosse for Cabaret? (Even though Godfather itself, did win.)

Dances with Wolves beat GoodfellasFargo lost to The English Patient. Rocky beat Taxi Driver (and for that matter, Network).

And I don’t want to get too personal, but Ellen Burstyn lost to Julia Roberts, in Requiem for a Dream, and Erin Brockovich, respectively.  Watching Brokovich was like watching an updated version of plucky Alice, in Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore, which starred….  Ellen Burstyn.

Ah well, that’s what makes it a horse race, I guess….

    I do not even know how I ended up right here, but I believed this submit was once good. I do not recognise who you might be however definitely you’re going to a famous blogger in the event you aren’t already. Cheers!
