The list of nominees for the Oscar 2022 has finally been officially announced. And, as usual, although this year’s Oscar nominees are among the most diverse, as in previous years, there are a number of films and candidates who, although they are predicted to be strong candidates, have been ignored by the judges of the most prestigious awards in the world of cinema. this. In fact, both the film and the actors have received praise and have been championed by many observers and film connoisseurs. Like the previous year, without further ado, here’s the list of Oscar Snub 2022 that we managed to compile from various sources.
The Most Surprising Snub for Many: Passing
Rebecca Hall’s adaptation of Nella Larsen’s 1929 novel was critically acclaimed, but failed to win much credit, except for its supporting actress, Ruth Negga. Negga got the nod for her performance as Clare graduating from the Golden Globes, BAFTA, and SAG Awards, but the Oscars passed her. While Negga is Passing’s best shot for a 2022 Oscar nomination, a film that misses out on any nominations entirely is a surprising abandonment to a film well-regarded for its striking visuals and nuanced and thoughtful storytelling. Passing itself is recognized by many as not a strong Oscar film, but in fact the success of Negga’s previous performance which has been recognized in 3 other prestigious events has not been ignored, and this is a very unusual thing.
Oscar Snub Category Best Director
Successfully making Dune the only true blockbuster film whose material is also suitable for competition at the festival level, Dune emerged as one of the strongest candidates for Oscar 2022 as the second most nominated nominee with 10 nominations, ranging from Editing, Production Design, and also Cinematography, after The Power of the Dogs. However, somehow the visionary who brought all these complex elements together, Denis Villeneuve was not nominated for Best Director. Villeneuve took the risk of bringing Frank Herbert’s Dune to the big screen, making the original hit of what many considered an unadaptable novel. It was his unique vision and directing efforts that spearheaded the gamble of dividing him into two films, and the result was his most commercially successful film to date. Apart from Villeneuve, the Oscar judges also did not nominate Steven Spielberg and Guillermo del Toro, although their film also received many nominations and was included in the Best Picture list.
Oscar Snub for Best Acting
Had been staying as the strongest candidate to win Best Actress thanks to her prominent appearance in the House of Gucci, Lady Gaga had to bite her fingers, because her name was not on the list at all. Though, perhaps no one fought harder for the nomination than Lady Gaga, who is actively campaigning around the world and looks poised after getting approval from the Screen Actors Guild and BAFTA. In the end, though, it seems that Oscar voters didn’t like Ridley Scott’s films; the only nomination that this film about the true crime retelling of the murder of fashion mogul Maurizio Gucci got was for Best Make Up. Besides Lady Gaga, many consider the loss of Nicolas Cage’s name through his performance in Pig on the Best Actor nomination list and also Licorice Pizza star, Alana Haim from the Best Actress list as well as the biggest snub of the 2022 Oscars in the acting category. Meanwhile, in the Best Supporting category, the snub that was considered surprising was the absence of the names Jared Leto (House of Gucci), Bradley Cooper (Licorice Pizza), and Ben Affleck (The Tender Bar).
Oscar Snub Best International Feature Film: A Hero
If anything seems to be key to this year’s nominations, it’s Asghar Farhadi’s latest film, A Hero. Farhadi is the only director to have won the Oscar for Best International Feature Film (formerly known as Best Foreign Film) twice, having taken home Oscar gold for 2011’s A Separation and 2016’s The Salesman. two days off from prison trying to get creditors to pay off the debt that put him in jail, seemingly poised to set things off a hat-trick for Farhadi — he won the Grand Prix at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival. But in a stunning twist, A Hero was not nominated. .
