Worst Oscar Snubs for Performances in Horror Films

This list is made up of performances that did not get any Oscar nominations that should have.

The Top TenXW

1Jack Nicholson - The Shining

Amazing role, nobody could do the role of Jack as good as him

2Anthony Perkins - Psycho

He really should have gotten one and it is rather an outrage he didn't. But I have noticed the trend with the Oscars and how they hardly ever, if at all, award a performance in a horror.

3Robert Englund - Nightmare on Elm Street

Everyone on this list deserved it but Rob's my favorite and he SO did a GREAT job as Freddy and really deserves it. No one can say they don't agree.

4Donald Pleasence - Halloween
5Neve Campbell - Scream
6Reggie Bannister - Phantasm
7Crispin Glover - Willard

This performance was the worst snub in film history for a horror movie. He should have taking home the oscar for Best Actor in 2003.

11Jim Siedow - The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
12Naomi Watts - The Ring
13Sissy Spacek - Carrie

Get her off the air!
Plaid-out to the max!
ON air every night for yearss and years!
And too many times daily for more Years!
Was OK in the 70's for one viewing, but come on guys?
At least 3000 times a year? Too MUch?
