Oscars: 15 Biggest Snubs and Surprises

I’m glad “Gravity” was nominated. It was a truly original and special movie that was gripping, memorable, and pushed the boundaries of what movies can do. However, I am surprised that “Saving Mr. Banks” isn’t at least in the running. It seemed like a sure thing, and it was far more of a genuine drama than “Gravity” was. For all its merits, “Gravity” is essentially an action movie, and with rare exceptions (ROTK, if that can be called an action movie) those are not Oscar contenders. I wouldn’t mind seeing it win Best Director, though. In fact, it probably deserves that win.
