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.
I am a pretty big Chris Evans fan. I got introduced to him in a movie called The Perfect Score, and really started following him once I saw Cellular. Being the superhero fan that I am being Johnny Storm and Steve Rogers have been fabulous roles for him. When I saw a premise for a foreign film that he was signing on to play lead in, the Sci-Fi thriller Snowpiercer, a couple of years back, I was pretty excited.

Snowpiercer is a Korean film (my foreign film) directed by Bong Joon-Ho. With the majority of the selected actors for his film speaking English, he shot the majority of the film in English. [Being a slow reader, I was relieved to find this out because I struggle with subtitles and getting the meanings of movies.]
