The Hollywood Reporter Tries To Put Ben Affleck’s Oscar Snub In Perspective

Posted by monique On January - 16 - 2013 0 Comment

The outcry of Ben Affleck and other directors (including Quentin Tarantino and Kathryn Bigelow) getting the Oscar directorial snub has gotten even stronger after Affleck won the directorial Golden Globe award for his film, “Argo.” The Hollywood Reporter tries to provide some logic who are still in a tizzy about the Oscar snubs.

However, no matter how hard The Hollywood Reporter tries to give some logic to the Academy’s sometimes crazy way of picking nominees (some of which, when it comes to the directorial award, involves a small percentage of the active members voting), the truth remains that the Academy made a really big mistake by snubbing the director of one of the best-reviewed films of the year.

So, in light of that, The Hollywood Reporter provided one thing that could change the stakes; the rare write-in vote. The article from the Reporter brings up the example of Bette Davis’ performance in 1934′s “Of Human Bondage.” When the actress wasn’t nominated for Best Actress, the fanatic outpouring of vitriol led to Davis to be written in as a nominee. Also, the article notes that cinematographer’s Hal Mohr, a write-in nominee for 1935′s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” actually won. Even though the chance of Affleck being written in are extremely slim, you never know. It could just happen.
