10 Shocking Oscar Snubs and Surprises From the Last 10 Years

Variety's 10 snubs and surprises over the last 10 years that were and most likely still shocking, I will be only 5 of the ten.

2010 (83rd Oscars)
Surprise nomination: Javier Bardem, “Biutiful” (best actor)
Shocking snub: Andrew Garfield, “The Social Network” (best supporting actor)

Previous winners can often make a sneak into the acting categories, and Javier Bardem was able to do so over the likes of Robert Duvall (“Get Low”) and Ryan Gosling (“Blue Valentine”) for Alejandro González Iñárritu’s foreign language nominated film “Biutiful” from Mexico. One of the eyebrow raisers was Andrew Garfield’s omission for one of the best picture frontrunners, “The Social Network” from David Fincher.

2014 (87th Oscars)
Surprise nomination: Bennett Miller, “Foxcatcher” (best director)
Shocking snub: Jake Gyllenhaal, “Nightcrawler” (best actor)

Bennett Miller was the first filmmaker to be the lone director nominee in the expanded best picture era for the darkly rich “Foxcatcher.” Joining a list that includes Stephen Daldry, Miller’s first three feature films have received a best picture or director nomination – “Capote” (2005), “Moneyball” (2011) and “Foxcatcher.” While exciting, many felt nothing but heartbreak for Jake Gyllenhaal, who, despite receiving nods from BAFTA, Globes and SAG, was egregiously left off the best actor list for Dan Gilroy’s “Nightcrawler.”
