WTF, Academy? Some of these are classics. I'm definitely shocked that some of them weren't even NOMINATED.

Discussion questions; Out of these films, what's your favorite? Which movie can you not BELIEVE got snubbed this year? Which of these historical snubs is the most heinous oversight? On a scale of one to gouging my eyes out, how bored do you guys think I am right now in my 'Performance and Gender' lecture? 


SOURCE thinks it's an honor to even be nomina-...oh wait.
