The 84th Annual Academy Awards nominations drew a few surprises this year, and always, a great many snubs.
Here’s a list of some noteworthy oversights.
Michael Fassbender was royally snubbed for Shame, the harrowing Steve McQueen drama where he played a sex addict alongside Carey Mulligan, who was also overlooked for her role as his addled younger sister.
Leonardo DiCaprio received no recognition for J. Edgar, which was hyped to be a major Oscar contender all season long.
For the second year in a row, Ryan Gosling was snubbed in the Best Actor category. Last year, he was overlooked for Blue Valentine; this year for Drive.
Gosling’s Drive co-star Albert Brooks was similarly shut out of the Best Supporting Actor race. After the nominations were announced, he tweeted, “To the Academy: ‘You don’t like me. You really don’t like me.’”
Tilda Swinton was left out of the Best Actress race for We Need to Talk About Kevin.
Will Reiser‘s autobiographical 50/50 was overlooked in the Best Original Screenplay category.
Golden Globes winner The Adventures of Tintin, was completely shut out of the Best Animated Feature category.
