It needs a lot of thought indeed. For best leading actor you have chosen Arnold Schwarzenegger in Aftermath. If you want to change your option let me know.

Defoe in Lighthouse is leading and he is already taken. Can you pick anyone else?

You apparently haven't seen the film. Robert P. is the lead and protagonist. Willem Dafoe is supporting. Even the studio thought so as that's also how they were FYC campaigning him. Robert Pattinson has far more screentime than Willem Dafoe.

Ok, since the studio think he is supporting let's add him in the supporting category. Now pick another supporting actor because Dafore from Lighthouse is already taken by Breumaster

Crow T. Robot, Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie (1996)

Look at the pathos he evokes in this scene. The Academy can be so cruel. Some may call them robotcist when they ignore great Robot-American actors.


I'll go with ...

It's a strange coincident that the link for Best Original Song Snubs and Best Original Score Snubs differ by only one digit.

Alfred Hitchcock (I) (1899–1980)
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000033/
Director: Movie (58 credits) 
  
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000033/bio
Directed eight different actors in Oscar-nominated performances:
Laurence Olivier, Joan Fontaine, Judith Anderson, Albert Bassermann,
Michael Chekhov, Claude Rains, Ethel Barrymore and Janet Leigh. 
Fontaine won an Oscar for Suspicion (1941).
- - -
Directed four Oscar Best Picture nominees:
Rebecca (1940) (which won), Foreign Correspondent (1940), Suspicion (1941)
and Spellbound (1945).
However, none of these are often regarded as among his best efforts by peers or critics.
- - -
 
Though he was Oscar-nominated five times as best director,
DGA-nominated six times as best director,
and received three nominations from Cannes,
he never won in any of these competitive categories,
a fact that surprises fans and film critics to this day.

I don't believe Hateful Eight is an adapted screenplay. There was no original material (book, comic book, previously released tv series or preexisting film where the characters and/or story was carried over from). Usually, you can find the author's of the preexisting published material (or screenwriter's name of works made earlier than the work in question) under the writer section in IMDb or you can check the film's IMDb page.

Sometimes, all it will say is characters by...; etc..

And what individual song from Veer-Zaara do you think should be nominated?

The Hateful Eight is Original Screenplay.

Stephen Atwood,

Thanks for the info. Let me think of another film which deserves it.

Also, they don't nominate the whole album? (I don't know since I don't watch Oscars; only on YouTube.)

If that's the case, the name of the song is Tere Liye by Lata Mangeshkar and Roop Kumar Rathod.

Edit: The book is also by Quentin Tarantino. [ link ]

What about remakes?

For example, Heat (1995) - remake of L.A. Takedown (1989) (TV Movie)

Heat is also considered an original screenplay, even though it's based on the pilot of LA Takedown. You should follow Stephen's advice and check the writer section in the film's IMDb page to see if there is any based on citation.

4. Best Adapted Screenplay: Gone Girl (2014)

Edit 2: 

The Revenant
 (2015) - (Based on a novel by Michael Punke)

Did the Tarantino book come out after the movie? Those are called novelizations. They don't count when considering whether a script is adapted from another source or not.

In this case, according to an Amazon review? Hateful 8 is a published, bound script, not a novel.

I second your nomination of Mads Mikkelsen, I hope that he wins an Oscar soon.


He is also very fan-friendly, for me it is a great quality even in his worse movies he achieves to impress me.

There's been so many fantastic films that weren't recognised by the academy whether it be because they were genre pictures, too comedic or too arthouse. This year I believe The Lighthouse should have been nominated for best picture and for Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson's performances. Sylvester Stallone was nominated for Rocky and Creed however I also believe he should have been nominated for his portrayal of Rambo in First Blood. Yes the Rambo movies have been criticised with the sequels been nominated for Razzies although the original is a really well acted character piece that I believe the academy should have him given credit for back in 1982.

Best original soundtrack: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

Best director: Avatar

Best supporting actor: Gilbert Grape (Leo)

Best adapted screenplay: The Shawshank Redemption

Best original screenplay: Mother!

Breumaster, the suggestions are about films or actors that should have been nominated (yet they didn't). The good the bad and the ugly for best picture and soundtrack are already taken, James Cameron was nominated for Avatar as Leon for Gilbert Grape and the Shawshank Redemption for adapted screenplay. Mother's original screenplay added to the list.
