Can we change the quote? Beyonce did get Video of the Year that year, after all...
Never. That quote is far too fitting and hilarious.
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?
They would still be Flame Bait. And there's still the rest of the Internet for that.
How about considering allowing examples of Award Snubs in fiction?
I guess that could work.
Should this page become YMMV? I know most people agree on a lot of these, but it's still pretty subjective.
yep or troper tales.
Since the examples were deleted due to it's subjectivity, can we have one of those "Fanspeak" banners put on this trope page?
Take it to the Repair shop, where the mods will see your request.
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.
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.
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.
The Hurt Locker was based on Real Life experiences — Quentin Tarantino created Inglourious Basterds from his own imagination
which sounds more original to you?
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.
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.
this is a ridiculous, who gave who the right to delete every single entry on this page?
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?
We discussed this in the trope repair shop.
So that means no or what?
Temporary measure taken.
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?
I will say it again, we need the Troper Tales just to relieve tension.
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.
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.
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.
[thumped — if you want to be banned, it's fine by me]
Though this might not be awards so much as getting as much merchandise and being referenced as much as the others. Not that it hasn't got a bit of both, but not nearly as much as the others. It will soon be as forgotten as the Tim Burton Batman films.

How well does it match the trope?
