Oscar Nominations: Who Was Snubbed (Poll)

'Captain Phillips'

The ripped-from-the-headlines story of Somali pirates hijacking a cargo ship has become a critically hailed awards contender that has also resonated with audiences. The $50 million Sony film, directed by Paul Greengrass and starring Tom Hanks and Barkhad Abdi, has already hit $200 million in worldwide receipts and will continue to play in theaters throughout Oscar season. 

UPDATED: The big movies, actors, directors and screenwriters left out of Thursday morning's Academy Award nominations.

The nominees for the 86th Academy Awards were announced on Thursday morning, but some movies and big names, predicted by many to be nominees, were left off the list.

Tom Hanks didn't receive an Oscar nomination for his work in Captain Phillips or Saving Mr. Banks. Oprah Winfrey was also snubbed in the best supporting actress category for her work in Lee Daniels' The Butler.
