Can we change the quote? Beyonce did get Video of the Year that year, after all...
05:14:52 PM Dec 14th 2012
Never. That quote is far too fitting and hilarious.
08:05:44 PM Nov 18th 2011
I understand the reason for not allowing examples, but shouldn't we at least list those that are widely considered award snubs outside of the Wiki?
02:19:18 PM Nov 28th 2011
They would still be Flame Bait. And there's still the rest of the Internet for that.
08:00:52 PM Sep 30th 2011
How about considering allowing examples of Award Snubs in fiction?
09:09:56 PM Nov 16th 2011
I guess that could work.
08:06:01 PM Jan 29th 2011
Should this page become YMMV? I know most people agree on a lot of these, but it's still pretty subjective.
12:53:14 PM May 17th 2011
yep or troper tales.
11:41:38 PM Jan 25th 2011
Since the examples were deleted due to it's subjectivity, can we have one of those "Fanspeak" banners put on this trope page?
11:57:07 PM Jan 25th 2011
Take it to the Repair shop, where the mods will see your request.
10:53:41 PM Jan 26th 2011
Mods took care of that already, but i'll keep that in mind for the future.

Changed the "honorable mention" and (shudders) Master and Commander to make it more fair. First of all, kids, The Return of the King is an excellent movie and it deserve all of it's wins. Man, I am getting tired of whiners complaining about the Lot R trilogy getting a shred of recognition at the oscars after two straight years of snubbing. Grow up.

This review of Rugrats in Paris actually anticipated an Award Snub: "In the Oscar Bait sweepstakes, the picture includes a song titled "When You Love" (sung by Sinead O'Connor) that's quite pleasing — meaning, of course, that it'll be ignored in the Best Original Song race in favor of a dreary tune from Dr Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas called "Where Are You Christmas" (sung by Faith Hill and co-written by Mariah Carey)."  * He was only half-right: both songs got snubbed, although Faith Hill sung Pearl Harbor's nominated song the following year.

Which review? Someone did not add a link.

this seems… subjective. Clearly someone believed than crash was a better film than Brokeback. we have Your Mileage May Vary for a reason you know.
04:30:07 PM Mar 20th 2010
Can somebody edit out every instance of "(Movie title)- widely considered one of (Director X's) best movies, and possibly one of the greatest films of all time"? This sentence easily comprises half the article.
06:39:15 PM Apr 26th 2010
That would seem appropriate. Even worse are people who are just criticizing the person who won (for example, Obama winning), instead of, you know, talking about someone who <should>/<could> have won... This is starting to become a Im Not Making This Up all over again. T_T

What was The Hurt Locker adapted from if it wasn't original? Disregard, the item in question was deleted.
05:51:50 PM May 18th 2010
The Hurt Locker was based on Real Life experiences — Quentin Tarantino created Inglourious Basterds from his own imagination

which sounds more original to you?
12:25:45 AM May 28th 2010
Doesn't matter what sounds more original. Neither movie was based on any published material; if one of them was, it would go to the adapted screenplay category. That's why both came to compete in the Original Screenplay category (or, as it was once known, and ought to be the KEY PHRASE to remember, Best Screenplay written directly for the screen). Real Life experiences aren't published, books like "Public Enemies" ('twas a book before the film) are.
03:12:26 PM Mar 13th 2010
Can we please put a tropertales section for Award Snub? All this page is is just people ranting that their favorite film didn't win. Universally considered examples (I.E. Crash beating Brokeback Mountain.) will remain on the page.
06:55:16 AM Jan 25th 2011
this is a ridiculous, who gave who the right to delete every single entry on this page?
07:42:30 AM Jan 25th 2011
I support this notion, it was something interesting to read.

Who decided they had the right to delete an entire page? Can we at least transfer it over to a Troper Tales page or something?
02:20:57 PM Jan 25th 2011
We discussed this in the trope repair shop.
05:11:03 PM Jan 25th 2011
So that means no or what?
08:38:35 PM Jan 27th 2011
Temporary measure taken.
07:41:01 PM Feb 4th 2011
Seriously, why weren't all the examples moved to a Troper Tales page? That didn't even come across their minds on that trope repair page. And does that "temporary" measure include storing all of the deleted examples somewhere?
07:29:50 PM Feb 9th 2011
I will say it again, we need the Troper Tales just to relieve tension.
07:43:25 PM Feb 9th 2011
Troper tales are supposed to about your personal experience with the trope, not a license to complain about how something was robbed of best picture and bash the winner.
07:57:05 AM Feb 22nd 2011
WAIT! where are the PRIORITIES? Example moderation comes before cutting the examples! Cutting the examples must be done only when moderating examples hasn't worked.
06:34:56 PM Feb 28th 2011
It would still be fundamentally ranting about shows you like not getting the award.

<Mod Voice> We do not want or need examples for this article, in Troper Tales, YMMV, I Just Want To Rant, or anywhere else. You've got literally thousands of places on the Internet where you can discuss who should have won what award; we have decided that this is not one of them.

Any further discussion threads started on this topic will be deleted without warning and anyone starting one may lose wiki privileges.
