“Over the years the judges have ignored some brilliant films, directors and actors, but this year the field is the strongest I’ve seen. I can’t wait to see who wins the Best Film Snub Oscars,“ gushed Gisella de Fourier, movie critic for Mindless Media magazine.
The hot favorite in the Best Actor Snub category is David Oyelowo, who played Martin Luther King Jr. in the film Selma. Although many believe that Jennifer Aniston, the actress who has never won an award, will finally be acknowledged this year by lifting the Best Actor Snub Oscar.
David Fincher, director of the box office hit Gone Girl, is the leading contender for this year’s Best Director Snub award. He is being challenged by Clint Eastwood, who is winning critical acclaim for his movie American Sniper, which makes him a very strong candidate for being disregarded.
The animated film section is particularly rich in Snub candidates. “Ignoring the Lego Movie is absolutely brilliant, and I’ll be very surprised if this film does not lift the Best Animated Film Snub award this year,” said de Fourier. “But picking a winner this year is difficult because there are so many great films to cold shoulder. It’s brilliant!” she added.
