YMMV: Blue Valentine
  • Award Snub: Ryan Gosling, surprisingly, didn't get nominated (though Michelle Williams was). And it's exclusion for a Best Picture nomination.
  • Draco in Leather Pants: A rare non-romantic, straight male example; young, aimless men are more likely to overidentify with Dean and characterize him as a good husband and father who is unfairly treated, instead of a pushy, needy, manipulative drunk who rarely takes Cindy's feelings into consideration.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Most right-thinking audience members should limit their sympathy for Dean when he drunkenly punches out Cindy's boss and gets her fired.
  • Tear Jerker: Probably one of the biggest Tear Jerker Romantic films in a really long time.
