Critic Notices Academy Awards Ignore "Excellent Movies" That Are Fun To Watch

It even had genital torture like that neocon blogger movie about killing Bin Laden!“But Skyfall does not fit into the Oscars’ strangely limited and calcified definition of excellence. Neither does The Dark Knight Rises, The Avengers or The Hunger Games, although all are excellent movies, well-cast and acted from fine scripts made better by good direction. Alas, they were also fun, and fun no longer fits the list of qualifiers for Oscar quality after all the Usual Suspects (grim, inspirational, historical), have been named.”
Which of your favorite well-made, enjoyable movies from 2012 were ignored by the Academy Awards? And don’t say Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter because that’s what everybody says.
