The Forgotscars: Honoring the Oscar Snubs

Such is the case every year, when the Oscar nominations were announced this morning there were several key omissions. No Julianne Moore? No Samantha Morton? Um, The Blind Side" as Best Picture? Really? Anyways, because snubs sting, I've concocted a way to honor the Oscar forgotten. I've selected some films and actors left in the dark this morning, and nominated them for "Forgotscars."
