Tag: Oscars

In the grand 91-year long tradition of the Academy Awards, also known as the Oscars, there has always been at least one category at which moviegoers and critics are shocked by a lack of nomination. Unfortunately, the final choice is not up to us as an audience, but rather to the the Academy. So with the Oscars coming up on Sunday, Feb. 9 and a DVD display about this exact topic at our Anythink Wright Farms location, it seems only fitting to look at some of the most infamous Oscar snubs.

Confession: For someone who “doesn’t care about the Oscars,” I actually do care about the Oscars. They serve as a useful snapshot of a given year in film history. What we as moviegoers value often differs from what Academy voters value. Not only that, but what Academy voters value tends to change over time.
