10 Oscar Snubs That Still Make Us Mad

snubs slide 1 jpg
Yesterday was Oscar nomination day, which means that ever since, everyone has been boo-hooing on behalf of the people who seemed like shoe-ins for noms but didn’t make the final list. Over the past 24 hours, it seems pretty agreed that these were the most offensive snubs of 2011:

        • And no Justin Timberlake or Andrew Garfield for Best Supporting Actor in “The Social Network”?

        • How could Christopher Nolan not get nominated for Best Director after making the insanely creative “Inception”?

        • Cold diss. Everyone and their mom (Christian Bale, Amy Adams, and Melissa Leo) got nominated for their acting in “The Fighter,” with the exception of Mark Wahlberg, the movie’s lead.

But after the jump, let’s go back in time and look at the snubs of yesteryear we still can’t believe.

Woman Allegedly Mows Down Cousin After Man Refuses Her Facebook Friend Request

Today in “bitches be crazy!” news: Melanie Snanopoulos, of Long Island, allegedly mowed down her cousin, Giselle Penagos, 21, twice with her van after fighting about a guy. On Sunday, Snanopoulos and Penagos got in a heated fight while driving after Snanopoulos discovered that a man she was interested in had accepted Penagos’ Facebook friend request, but ignored her own. After Snanopoulos pulled over, Penagos jumped out of the van and Snanopoulos followed her. The two fought on the street and then Snanopoulos allegedly hopped back in the van and drove straight into Penagos. She then supposedly reversed and plowed into Penagos for a second time. Over a dude ignoring a friend request? Maybe he just hadn’t gotten around to accepting it yet! Yeesh. Keep reading »

James Franco Gets Trapped Under A Mini-Fridge!


Calamity struck at “The Daily Show” yesterday, when actor James Franco went looking for a Snickers bar … and a mini-fridge fell on his arm, trapping him in the green room. Watch as James, much like his “127 Hours” character, attempts to cut his own arm off with a spork — until Jon Stewart steps in, of course. [Pop Eater] Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “My Husband Calls Another Woman Constantly”

Last month my husband received a friend request on Facebook from a childhood friend he hasn’t seen or spoken to in 10 years. She wrote him a couple of messages and they texted over the holidays. I figured this was a case of old friends catching up and didn’t think much of it. Last week, he unlocked his iPhone to show me a picture and his call log was open. I saw that there were about eight calls to and from his friend in a span of three days. He doesn’t even call me that much! My phone bill came this week and there were over 100 texts to and from this “friend” in a matter of three days. I asked about the messages and he admitted that he deleted them because I would have gotten angry. I have explained to him that I think it’s disrespectful for a random woman to be repeatedly calling my husband (they were friends TEN years ago!) and I think he is disrespecting me by having so much contact with her behind my back. He says that I am crazy, jealous and overreacting. He has been very opposed to my having close male friends, so I think he is being a hypocrite. I had no reason to not trust him until he started hiding things from me. Do you think I’m really being overly jealous or is he just trying to make me feel guilty because he knows he’s wrong? — The “Crazy” Wife
