Though she shared the screen with Natalie Portman in one of the most talked-about sex scenes this year, "Black Swan" co-star Mila Kunis was overlooked by the Academy in the supporting actress category.
Kunis, who prepared for the role as intensely as Portman did -- dropping 20 pounds to a dangerously low 95 pounds -- earned nods from the Screen Actors Guild and Golden Globe Awards, but was denied the chance for Oscar gold.
"Swan" is obviously Portman's movie -- she received a nomination for best actress -- but some think Barbara Hershey, as her manic mother, should also have been nominated for best supporting actress.
Like Kunis, Andrew Garfield, who played Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg's business partner in "The Social Network," earned a Golden Globe nomination for best supporting actor, but he was overlooked by SAG.
Reading those tea leaves, some surmised rightly that he would be excluded from Oscar. Still, many consider it a snub, since "Social Network" got eight nominations, behind "The King's Speech" (12) and "True Grit" (10).
Garfield is already moving on. The 27-year-old actor has stepped into his first a starring role, taking over the "Spider-Man" franchise from Tobey Maguire.
