List RulesVote up the people and films who were most egregiously robbed of a 2019 Oscar nomination.

When the Academy Award nominations were announced at 5:30 am on January 22, 2019, as in years past, many Oscar hopefuls who got up early to see the list of nominees were disappointed. They then became part of an annual club no one really wants to be part of: Oscar Snubs.

The 2019 Oscar nominations include plenty of worthy films along with actors, actresses, directors, writers, editors, composers, sound mixers, and all the other staff and crew members who toil to make films entertaining, enlightening, and engaging. But not everyone can make the final cut, and sometimes films that rack up nominations in a bunch of categories seem to inexplicably leave out one or two that seemed to be surefire picks in the annual round of Oscar prognostications.

Everyone's already making predictions about who will win in 2019. You're likely not an Academy voter, so here's your chance as a film buff to cast your vote for people and films in a category no one will be hearing about on awards night: Best (Worst?) Oscar Snubs. Will one of the movies or people here end up on a list of the worst Oscar snubs of all time?
