Oscars 2013: Who Missed Out | Kevin O’Connell
Kevin O’Connell

Category: Best Sound Mixing
Film: Pitch Perfect

We’ll be honest, we don’t know if the sound mixing on Pitch Perfect was up there with his best work – although the title kinda implies it was – but we really want to see Kevin O’Connell, the man behind it, win an Academy Award so we’re calling this a snub. O’Connell has been nominated 20 times – TWENTY – and not won a single statuette. To rub salt into our wounds (though, in fairness, probably not his) his old collaborator Greg P. Russell is up for an Oscar this year for Skyfall. Someone just give this man an Oscar already.

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
