Oscars Snubs Tom Hanks For Best Actor Award

The 86th Academy Awards made its biggest snub of all this year when it did not nominate Tom Hanks for Best Actor for his role as Captain Rich Philipps in the piracy thriller "Captain Phillips."

Hanks, a two-time Academy award winner for "Philadelphia" and "Forrest Gump," was a frontrunner for Best Actor in several-award winning bodies. The Academy Awards' snub of his role as Captain Phillips was a big shock for many.

And although "Captain Phillips" was nominated as "Best Picture," its director Paul Greengrass was also not nominated as Best Director.

"Captain Phillips" is about the 2009 hijacking of Maersk Alabama off the waters of Somalia. The American-flagged cargo ship was hijacked by Somali pirates. It was the first time an American ship was hijacked in 200 years.

Tom's performance on the film's last scene was said to be his most powerful as of late.

The 86th Academy Awards gala will be held on March 2 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California. It will be hosted by Ellen DeGeneres.
