The Most Egregious 2013 Oscar Snubs

The most egregious 2013 Oscar snubs include those movies and individuals overlooked by the Academy. In other words, despite being an outstanding film, a phenomenal actor who delivered an incredibly memorable performance or a director who went above and beyond, the films and people on this list failed to garner an Academy Award nomination in a key category (or in multiple categories). Which snub is the worst? You decide, with your votes. See a movie or person you feel was overlooked? Vote them up, by all means, and feel free to sound off in the comments about your choice(s). Also, if you notice that a particular Oscar 2013 snub isn't listed, definitely add it to the list.

No list of Oscar snubs 2013 would be complete without several very notable directors who didn't make the cut. Among them: Ben Affleck, widely considered an Academy Award favorite for his directing of 'Argo,' and Kathryn Bigelow, who directed 'Zero Dark Thirty.' In March of 2010, Bigelow became the first woman ever to win an Oscar for Best Director for 'The Hurt Locker.' Other notable directors left off the 2013 Academy Awards nominations included Quentin Tarantino ('Django Unchained') and Tom Hooper ('Les Miserables').

As for the Best Picture Oscar nominees in 2013, several major motion pictures failed to garner a nomination in this esteemed category, including 'The Master,' 'Skyfall,' 'The Dark Knight Rises' and 'Moonrise Kingdom.' Everyone has a favorite, but not everyone saw their favorite get nominated. Which snub is the worst? Again, that's up to you to decide with your votes.

Oscar snubs are nothing new. Need proof? Just look at this list of the most egregious 2012 Oscar snubs. Just because it's bound to happen doesn't mean we can't complain about it, though, and that's precisely why this list was created.
