Oscar Nominations: The Snubs (Slideshow)
Michael Fassbender, "Shame" -- Despite a Golden Globe nomination (and a shout out from George Clooney at the Globes ceremony), Fassbender was overlooked for a Best Actor nomination.
"Shame," in fact, failed to receive a single Oscar nomination.
"Young Adult" also received no Oscar nominations, despite a Golden Globe nomination for star Charlize Theron, a Writers Guild nomination for screenwriter Diablo Cody and recognition for supporting actor Patton Oswalt from several film critics associations.
"The Adventures of Tintin" -- The Steven Spielberg-directed flick won the Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature Film, but didn't even get a nomination for Best Animated Feature from the Academy.
Albert Brooks in "Drive" -- He received best supporting actor nominations for the Golden Globes and the Indepdent Spirit Awards, and lots of film critics groups accolades, but Brooks is MIA from the list of Best Supporting Actor Oscar contenders.
"Drive" received just one nomination ... for Sound Editing.
"The Descendants" certainly wasn't overlooked by the Academy, but in a particularly strong supporting actress category, TV star-turned-George Clooney big-screen co-star Shailene Woodley failed to score a nod.
Tilda Swinton in "We Need to Talk About Kevin" -- "Michael Clayton" Oscar winner Swinton was shut out in the Best Actress race, while "Kevin" was completely shut out in other categories, too.
Leonardo DiCaprio in "J. Edgar" -- The actor and the Clint Eastwood-directed film received no Oscar nominations.
"Cars 2" -- During the 10 years the Best Animated Feature category has existed, no Pixar movie has ever failed to be nominated ... until now.
Mary J. Blige -- "Living Proof," her song from the soundtrack for "The Help," received a Golden Globe nomination, but no recognition from the Academy.
"The Help" received nominations for Best Picture, Best Actress and two for Best Supporting Actress, but is missing from the list of contenders for Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay.
