Why is This Not a Movie?: The Snubby Awards

We take a break from the usual format this week to present the Snubby Awards, given to the best films and performance that were not nominated for an Oscar. Douglas Laman, film critic from The Spool, joins me to present and discuss this year’s nominees. Films were nominated and winners were chosen by The Dissolve Facebook group, a community of film-lovers who wanted to keep the spirit of Pitchfork’s short-lived, much-loved film web site going. Besides awarding snubbed performances in the major Oscar categories (Actress/Actor/Director/Picture), we also honor three categories the Academy does not see fit to recognize, Stuntwork, Voicework, and Casting. Winners will be given a gold statue of Spike Lee.
