2014 Oscar Nomination Snubs Make Us Wonder What the Academy Was Thinking

Try using the arrow keys

Bright and early Thursday morning, Chris Hemsworth and Cheryl Bone, the president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science, announced all of the nominees for the 2014 Oscars. We learned two things: Hemsworth should announce everything always, and the Academy has a pretty bad collective memory.

That's the only explanation for some of the enormous oversights made this year, with excellent performances, directors and whole films left snubbed. The Best Actor category was especially frustrating, thanks to a year of excellent performances being whittled down to just five nominees. There are many missing names from the list of Oscar nominees, but here are the biggest, most upsetting snubs.
