The First Annual “Snub Award” Nominations

Every year without fail, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences misses the mark when it comes to certain Oscar nominations. This is one person’s very small way of recognizing all the artists who should’ve been nominated for this year’s Academy Awards.

The rules are simple: honorees must not have been nominated for the most recent round of Academy Awards. Also, a category must have at least one nominee to exist. In some cases, a category may only have one nominee, therefore ensuring their win.

Let the nominations for this year’s Snub Awards begin!
