Snub: Jake Gyllenhaal, 'Nightcrawler' - Lead Actor
It was no secret that this year's Lead Actor field was arguably the best in a generation and not one, not two, not three, but possibly up to four deserving contenders would be left out in the cold. Unfortunately, Gyllenhaal fell into that group. Did the fact Open Road Films didn't spend significantly to campaign the film hurt Gyllenhaal's candidacy? Was it one movie the membership were afraid to watch? Curiouser and curiouser.
