I do not doubt for a second that those involved in KONY 2012 have great intentions, nor…
At least ONE of the winners deserved it (*cough* whythehellwasnttintinevennominated *cough* allanrickmanshouldhavegottenanod *cough* meryllstreepisamazingbuthonestlyshehasenoughoscars *cough* whatthefuckhugo)
Now that all the winners of the 84th Annual Academy Awards have been revealed, with Hugo and The Artist both coming away with a decent handful of Oscars, there will likely be some dwelling on who reallydeserved the golden statue, but didn’t receive one other than the chocolate replicas from Wolfgang Puck. However, a recent video made by JoBlo has decided to focus on all the movies and talents who weren’t even honored with a nomination with Snubbed 2012 - An Oscar Tribute. Made in the same style as the In Memoriam tribute video of those lost each year in cinema, this film remembers the non-nominees.
What do we think? Personally, I’m 100% on Elizabeth Olsen and Tilda Swinton. I feel like truly independent films and festival hits (like Martha Marcy May Marlene and We Need To Talk About Kevin) notoriously get snubbed at award shows. And of course, WHY didn’t The Adventures of Tintin get a best animated nomination? Even Billy Crystal noted that.
