oscar isaac is routinely snubbed by the academy. things they really should have nominated him for but didn’t:
- drive (2011 - supporting, plays carey mulligan’s recently out of prison husband, aka, the most compelling part of the damned film)
- inside llewyn davis (2013 - lead, plays a floundering folk musician in 60s New York during one horrible week in his life)
- a most violent year (2014 - lead, plays a latino business man trying to hold his oil company together in the face of theft, fraud etc.)
- ex machina (2015 - supporting, plays a charismatic but terrible genius who invents AI)
like honestly, if michael fassbender or eddie redmayne or even bradley cooper had played any of these parts, they would have most certainly got the nomination.
