Now that the Academy Awards for 2015 have been given out, we got to thinking about what films were either snubbed completely from a nomination, or barely edged out in winning certain categories. There is never any shortage of complaints in this regard, so what’s a few more right? Here are a few films we felt were snubbed in some way or another.

Humility is (read: should be) a key characteristic in a Christian’s life. Jesus said, “Everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted”. Peter draws emphasis to it three times in his first letter as a character trait we should possess. It’s a common thing to read of in the Bible. It’s something you should probably hear about on occasion from the pulpit. But it isn’t something you hear talked about on a daily basis too much. So you can imagine my surprise when a certain bit of humility was shown in a movie I saw earlier this year. Before a fight scene. Between apes!
