Breitbart News ^ | March 3, 2014 | Christian Toto

Posted on 03/03/2014 8:23:57 PM PST by This Just In

Oscar snubs are part of the annual Academy Awards tradition. Which actor or actress got denied a nomination?

Snubbing an actor who didn't make the Oscar ceremony's "in memoriam" segment is another matter.

Red Storm Rising was one of those Few Books that I started reading and literally couldn't put down.

Fantastic.

Ugh. They gave Shirley temple a one movie salute. She could sing, dance ad act. More than any of her co stars Fred Astaire and bing Crosby couldn’t even do all three

And she had no need for tweaking

Decency has no place

Ugh and Harold Ramos had a longer resume than that awful Hoffman. I didnt know who he was because I don’t watch horrible movies with dark unredeemed characters

Awful

Me too. I have no idea why there are no plans to bring it to the big screen as written as it can now be fairly done with CGI. Not to mention the new popularity of alternate history movies like Inglorious Bastards.

On those the Oscars missed I get the impression that if an actor/actress had a much bigger TV footprint than in movies, they may feel that it’s the job of the Emmys.

I’m not a big Hollywood fan and I acknowledge that my historical knowledge on this subject is limited, but wasn’t Hoffman an Oscar winner? That would be an appropriate distinction in this instance...

Tom Clancy was an author of a series of books. Maybe a case can be made that his books became movies.

Cory Monteith is known for his television show.

The Oscars are about movies.

Thanks KC.

Cory starred in several films. If the Oscars are about movies, why did Al Gore win an award?

Judging by Oscar history, no. Don’t forget; Al Gore won an Oscar.

Final Destination 3 is not noteworthy. Not even Oscar worthy.

Come on. Get real.

I think you have to have made some significant contribution.

I can see why Clancy was excluded too.

Shirley Temple Black was not only a multi-talented actress, but she served as an ambassador to Ghana the the former Czechoslovakia. She was a member of the U.S. Delegation to the United Nations under President Nixon. This is to name just a few of her accomplishments.

Male announcer: The red zone has always been for loading and unloading of passengers. There's never stopping in a white zone.
Female announcer: Don't you tell me which zone is for loading, and which zone is for stopping.
Male announcer: Listen Betty, don't start up with your white zone shit again.

The books Clancy wrote inspired movies. There are a lot of books that became movies.

I can understand a mention if the movie won an Oscar and the author also wrote the screenplay.

I thought you said he just appeared in television, and therefore not worthy. Now you’ve changed your tune.

You and I are in disagreement.

I see a double standard. Perhaps you don’t, and that’s okay. In the grand scheme of things, this is a minor point of contention.

Best Regards,

You’re welcome. The scene where Robert Stack gets to the airport and battles past vendors, hippies, panhandlers, Scientologists, etc. is what does it for me.

Oh and also, it was only $8.
Now I have a question: Do you think I’ll “get it”?

I’m not sure about that. I believe there have been awards presented to independent projects and I have to wonder whether or not all individuals were members.

Tom Clancy doesn't need recognition by Hollywood to have a lasting legacy of greatness...

His books were great and popular years before they ever made one into a film..

Though Hunt for Red October will always be my favorite ..

She also beat out Clark Gable and others for the most popular movie star in Hollywood....did it for I don’t know how many years!

She had class-—not like the Satanists, who control the Oscars and worship and reward evil and perversions, only. Any thing “Good” is reviled......like the light to cockroaches.

I’m just speaking of making the “In Memoriam” reel. I do know they start with a list of over a hundred and get it down to 25 or so. And for what it’s worth, being nominated automatically gets you membership.

Quite a snub. Shirley Temple was a great. They should have paid tribut to her in a big way

Really awful

Awful, I mean, that they snubbed her

What was the timing on the w of oz?

It’s not like Liza Minnelli et al were big in films, if they wee playing up to them

We all know the wizard of oz It couldve been done any time

They should’ve done a tribute there

Ah. I understand. This sounds plausible, and yet I still question the sincerity. Dennis Farina was worthy of recognition. No Jean Stapleton?

Why on Earth should Corey Monteif be recognized? He is a tv show actor. Had the Emmy’s left him out then ok, complain but not the Oscars. Tom Clancy? An author? Why on Earth should he be mentioned?

This author is an idiot. Clearly he can’t understand the difference between the Oscars and the Emmy’s. He is complaining about Ralph Waite….Really? The Waltons had to do with the Oscars how??? He was even on NCIS as Gibbs Dad but Still does not deserve to be recognized at the Oscars. The Emmy’s? You bet! Glad to see the well deserved recognition of Paul Walker!
