Does it count as a snub if you never believed that no matter how many Best Picture spots there were, there'd never be enough for your favorite movies?
And so it came to pass today, that popular (and critical) favorites Star Trek, The Hangover and Michael Jackson's This Is It found themselves denied a shot at Oscars' biggest prize.
Star Trek earned four technical nods, natch, for the 82nd Academy Awards. The Hangover and This Is It got zip.
Some other notable snubs:
• Say, remember that delightful romantic-comedy (500) Days of Summer? Oscar didn't. Nothing.
• Nancy Meyers movies usually produce Oscar nods, but not this time. It's Complicated didn't figure anywhere, for anyone—Oscar cohost Alec Baldwin, included.
• Once, onetime Best Actress winner Marion Cotillard looked like she might save Nine from awards-season obscurity. Instead, Penélope Cruz got the film's lone acting nod, in the Best Supporting Actress category. (Overall, the box-office bust managed four nods.)
• You may have not heard of The Secret of Kells, but the folks who made Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs likely will never get the film that "stole" its nomination for Animated Feature.
