Oscars 2013: Who Missed Out | Félix Bergés
Félix Bergés

Category: Best Visual Effects
Film: The Impossible

Ewan McGregor can count himself unlucky not to be joining co-star Naomi Watts at the Kodak Theater, but it’s The Impossible post-production wizards who are most hard done by. If you’ve witnessed that terrifying tsunami on the big screen, you’ll know exactly what we’re talking about. In truth, the film’s tech wizards behind it didn’t get close to tux time – The Impossible missed even the Academy’s ten-film VFX shortlist – which, considering Hereafter was recognised for an inferior sequence, reveals a disappointing Hollywood bias in the voting.

Best editing-Cloud Atlas, by miles. Best Actor-Liam Neeson in The Grey. Best makeup-Cloud Atlas. Samuel L and Leo deserve supporting actor nods too. More

Marion Cotillard undoubtedly should have got a nomination and should really win the Oscar too. The biggest omission for me - besides Ben Affleck for Best Director - is no nod for Sam Rockwell as Best Supporting Actor in Seven Psychopaths!!!! More

3 TDKR
I didn't expect too many nominations for TDKR, but I think it is inexcusable not to have nominated Wally Pfister for his outstanding cinematography, I don't care if he's already won, doesn't mean his work isn't still great. Nice to see Roger Deakins get the nod though :) More

4 Best Score?!?!
Why is Beasts of the Southern Wild not included in this category? Of the list I've only seen Skyfall and Life of Pi and while those are both great scores (Skyfall beats Life of Pi in my opinion) neither are better than Beasts. I downloaded it as soon as I saw the film and it instantly brings back the feelings while watching it. I can only think it must not have been eligible. For me the best score of the year by far. More

Leo DiCaprio and Samuel L Jackson both for supporting actors in Django, for sure. Both excellent performers and both long overdue statuettes. More

Totally agree with Cloud Atlas. For Best Picture, Best Editing (it's seriously impressive how they have pulled it off, not to mention different than any other movies we've ever seen) and Best Adapted Screenplay, like the other person suggested. Perhaps also for Best Special Effects. More

10 Supporting Actor
Disappointed to see no love for Jude Law. Everyone seems to have forgotten just how brilliant he was in Anna Karenina, despite a lot of buzz around his performance at the time. Pity. :( More

Cotillard really should have been nominated, she was incredible in Rust & Bone. Not a big fan of the film itself, though. More
