OSCARS 2016: The Unlucky Buggers



Beasts of No Nation

Possible nominations: Supporting Actor

Idris Elba is the reason the diversity within the Oscars has been called out this year, and boy oh boy I’m lost as to why the best performer was ousted from the list of Supporting Actors. And as you can see, he’s angry too!


Black Mass

Possible nominations: Actor

Not at all a great gangster film because it lacks the ingredients to make it so, Black Mass electrified solely because of Johnny Depp, whose transformation into Whitey Bulger was bound to be victorious.



Possible nominations: Editing, Cinematography

Justin Kurzel’s wild imagination has let this new Macbeth come visually to life, and it’s a shame this vivid creation wasn’t acknowledged because it provided something new to the Shakespeare canon.



Possible nominations: Visual Effects

Not that big of a deal, but Ant-Man could have won this year because it exploded into existence and made the summer ironically larger-than-life.


Furious 7

Possible nominations: Original Song

Having never heard of Racing Extinction and The Hunting Ground, I’m absolutely flabbergasted that Charlie Puth and Wiz Khalifa’s ‘See you Again’ was not recognised. It was more than just a great song; it was the send-off for Paul Walker, both as a character and human being.


Mississippi Grind

Possible nominations: Actor, Supporting Actor, Original Screenplay

Mississippi Grind was just so bloody fantastic I can’t wait to watch it again and see how others react to it. Ben Mendelsohn and Ryan Reynolds are just so good together that this film should have been acknowledged one way or another.



Possible nominations: Original Screenplay

A film that doesn’t stand a chance at the Oscars. It would have been nice to see Dope gain the love it needs to reach the global market because coming-of-age comedy-drama was the guilty pleasure of last year.



Possible nominations: Picture, Actress

The best comedy of 2015, Spy was a blast from start to finish, and if the Oscars were a bit more like the Golden Globes, who knows…



Possible nominations: Actor

Another sort of unlucky individual is Tom Hardy, whose dual role as the Kray twins in Legend simply blew me away, even more so than what he was nominated for in The Revenant.


The Gift

Possible nominations: Original Screenplay

Joel Edgerton’s first foray into writing and directing, as well as producing and starring in The Gift was a unexpected surprise that jumped over all the expectations it had and made its own success.


The Lady in the Van

Possible nominations: Actress

There is no other way around it: 81-year old Maggie Smith should have taken the place of Jennifer Lawrence, and that’s that.


The Walk

Possible nominations: Visual Effects, Cinematography

Robert Zemeckis’ take on Philippe Petit’s astounding high-wire walk in between the Twin Towers will leave you suffering from vertigo if you’re not careful.


Crimson Peak

Possible nominations: Production Design, Costume Design

Guillermo Del Toro’s Crimson Peak may have fallen short in terms of horror, but it’s a gorgeously crafted gothic tale that could have easily pinched a couple of nominations.
