Seems to me that if a film is nominated for best picture, then the director by default should also receive a nomination.

Therefore, on that basis:-

Best Director:-

Tom Hooper - Les Miserables
Ben Affleck - Argo.

Number of best picture nominations - 10
Number of best director nominations - 5

It's a theory worthy of discussion, but not practical in the current circumstances

D'oh!

I absolutely didn't realise that there were twice the number of movie nominations to director nominations.

Ben Affleck - Best Director for Argo.
Yup. This is the ultimate snub in my eyes.

For him to win the BAFTA (which he is the favourite for) having already won the Golden Globe will make The Academy look very silly.

I liked Guy Pearce in 'Lawless'. I thought he could have been nominated for Best Supporting Actor.

That was the maximum amount of nominations allowed, not the amount of people they actually nominated....

Biggest one is Ben Affleck for Argo (Best Director)

Marion Cotillard for Rust and Bone (Best Actress)
Nicole Kidman for The Paperboy (Best Supporting Actress)
Samantha Barks for Les Miserables (Best Supporting Actress)
Tom Holland for The Impossible (Best Supporting Actor)
Eddie Redmayne for Les Miserables (Best Supporting Actor)

But there isn't enough room in all the acting categories to include all of those, so they're not really snubs as there aren't many I would take out of the nominations.

They're allowed to nominate 10, this year they nominated 9.

I must admit, I'm not really keen on the term "snub" because I think it implies a certain degree of malicious intent towards something that has been excluded, and in all honesty, while that may occasionally be the case, I don't think it is typically. It's more about preferences of those voting lying elsewhere.

But anyway, this year I was surprised that Ben Affleck wasn't nominated for Best Director, and as the awards season progresses it does start to look more and more odd. I can only rationalise it comes from the school of thought his still a relative newcomer to directing and they feel there is time to recognise him later.

My comment was vague, by "that" I meant the numbers darthbibble posted...

Eddie Redmayne, Aaron Tveit and Samantha Barks for Les Miserables.

In my opinion, other than the AMAZING Hugh Jackman they were the real stars of the film. Samantha's character in particular moved me more than Anne Hathaway...

I agree with Samantha Barks. Her portrayal of Eponine was flawless. Considering she is one of the central characters I feel that she hasn't got the recognition she deserves, even through the press and publicity etc

But on another note...
Ben Affleck, Leo Dicaprio and Tom Holland for me are the ones who've missed out. I thought Tom Holland was amazing

Ben Affleck - Best Director for Argo.
Absolutely. Thought he did a terrific job. Also Skyfall for best picture, one of the best Bonds ever.

I don't think it was because Ben had relatively little experience. Kevin Costner, Robert Redford, Mel Gibson among others all won for either their first or second film that they directed. But, for me, it's a glaring omission that I don't understand.

Ben Affleck - Argo
Kathryn Bigelow - Zero Dark Thirty
The Dark Knight Rises getting zero nominations (big categories fine but no tech noms or cinematography is just insane)
