Oscar Snubs: Most Overlooked Films, Stars and Shocking Losses in Academy Awards History
"You Can Never Tell"—which films will be screwed out of an Oscar. But in 1994, that's exactly what happened to Quentin Tarantino's hit Pulp Fiction. Starring John Travolta, Uma Thurman and Samuel L. Jackson, the flick—and The Shawshank Redemption—lost out to Tom Hanks' Forrest Gump for Best Picture. The leads also didn't win after being recognized in the Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress, and Best Supporting Actor categories. It's only luck? It won for Best Screenplay.
