The Oscar nominations were announced last week, with many surprises and disappointments for some. Congratulations to all of the nominees, as many of them were deserving. However, some snubs disappointed me as a movie lover and awards season fan. Here are my choices for the 10 biggest Oscar nomination snubs of 2012 (with #10 the least disappointing to me to #1 being the most disappointing).

10. Holy Motors for Best Foreign Language Film
