As happens almost every year, most of the Oscar nominees were already expected by the public, with the exception of a few surprises here and there. However, attention was drawn to the lack of some heavyweight titles, which ended up being snubbed and left out of the categories of the ceremony.

Below, therefore, check out 5 great films that were ignored by the 2023 Oscars!

Mars One (Mars One)


Let’s start talking about the Brazilian film mars one, directed and scripted by Gabriel Martins. The Brazilian work was being highly quoted to represent the country in the category of Best International Film. However, it did not appear in the final list of nominees, leaving many fans disappointed.


In the plot, “a lower-middle-class family of four tries to keep their spirit and their dreams in the months after the election of a right-wing president, a man who represents everything they are not”, reads the IMDb synopsis.

The film features Cícero Lucas, Carlos Francisco, Camilla Damião, Rejane Faria, Russo Apr and
Robson Vieira in the main cast.

The Woman King (The Woman King)

Blending action and drama, The Woman King made a lot of noise on its launch by bringing a very intense story, based on facts. The film was directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood and stars Viola Davis, who shared the screen with Thuso Mbedu, Lashana Lynch, John Boyega, Sheila Atim and Jordan Bolger.


The Woman King tells the story of the female Agojie group, a unit of female warriors responsible for protecting the African kingdom of Dahomey during the 1800s. In this context, we see General Nanisca (Davis) as she prepares a new generation of fighters.

Despite presenting a narrative full of emotion and great performances, the production was completely beaten by the Oscar 2023.

Not! Do not look! (nope)

One of the main absences from the 2023 Oscars is Jordan Peele’s most recent work: Not! Do not look! Known for his pertinent criticisms and acidic shots, the director conceived a film that mixes terror, science fiction, drama and a touch of comedy, continuing his beautiful curriculum, which already includes Run! (nominated for an Oscar in 2017) and We (2019).

In nope, residents of a remote ranch witness inexplicable supernatural events and believe that everything is the work of an extraterrestrial being. When trying to prove the existence of the creature, things start to get more complicated than they imagined.

Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer, Steven Yeun, Keith David, Brandon Perea and Michael Wincott are in the cast of the feature.

Throwing High (Hustle)

There is yet to be born a population more fans of Adam Sandler than Brazilians. And the actor delivers, in fact, a great job in his most recent film, called Throwing High, released on Netflix. However, not even Sandler’s good performance was able to yield Oscar nominations for the film in 2023.

Conducted by Jeremiah Zagar, the work has the following synopsis on IMDb: “A basketball talent scout discovers a phenomenal street player while in Spain and sees this prospect as his chance to return to the NBA.”

In addition to Sandler, Hustle brings Queen Latifah, Ben Foster, Kenny Smith and Robert Duvall in its cast. The feature also stands out for bringing basketball players doing odd jobs as actors, including Juancho Hernangomez, who has a leading role in the plot.

She Said (She Said)

Finally, the last major film snubbed by the 2023 Oscars on our list is She saiddirected by Maria Schrader and starring Lola Petticrew, Carey Mulligan, Katherine Laheen, Zoe Kazan, Emma O’Connor and Tom Pelphrey.

As The Woman King, She Said it is also inspired by facts, and is based on an investigative report by the American newspaper The New York Times that ignited the #MeToo movement. In the plot, two reporters reveal a series of cases of sexual abuse in Hollywood, forever changing the culture of the United States.

As the award has had, over the years, several nominations involving investigations and also films that talk about the entertainment industry, the absence of She Said can be considered a big surprise.

The Oscars 2023 takes place on March 12th! Check out the full list of nominees and where to watch each movie.
