The Worst Liberal Snubs is a growing list of the biggest liberal snubs against movies, shows, cars, and persons who have a conservative message:

  1. Dirty Harry (1971) is considered today to be one of the greatest action movies ever made; its revenue grossed 9 times its budget when it was released, it was #4 in box-office revenue in its year on a low budget, and its audience score on Rotten Tomatoes is an astronomical 90% and yet ... not a single Academy Award nomination, let alone any award, because some liberals disliked for political reasons some of its content.
  2. The Shawshank Redemption (1994), which is ranked as the all-time #1 film by the movie buffs at IMDb and has spiritual content,[1] received zero (0) Academy Awards out of 7 nominations.
  3. The musical movie Grease (1978), immensely successful (#1 box office film in 1978, by far[2]) and conservative in its message about young men and women, and cars (including featuring a muscle car design in its promotional poster), received no Academy Awards and only one minor nomination.
  4. The pro-family, popular and culturally influential television show The Brady Bunch (1969–1974) was repeatedly snubbed in Emmy awards.
  5. Steve Carell, the hilarious star comedian who played the role of a conservative on The Office, was nominated up to 10 times for an Emmy for that show, but did he ever win??[3]
  6. To punish the eminent physicist Fred Hoyle for criticizing the theory of evolution, the Nobel Prize committee awarded its prize to an underling of Hoyle for his work, and without recognizing him.
  7. The movie Citizen Kane (1941) was critical of the media mogul William Randolph Hearst, who tried to stop it, and it is considered the greatest movie ever made and yet was snubbed for best picture and many other Oscars in 1942.[4]
  8. Judy Garland was snubbed twice by liberal Hollywood in the Academy Awards, first by allowing her only a juvenile Oscar for her spectacular performance in The Wizard of Oz.
  9. Vertigo is considered one of the 10 greatest films ever made (#1 on a British list perhaps because its director Alfred Hitchcock was British), and yet it won no Oscars and was merely nominated in two obscure categories: sound and art direction and sound. Singin' in the Rain was also snubbed with no Oscars despite being one of the greatest musicals ever.
  10. The Exorcist was an influential sensation that also broke the box-office revenue record, and yet was snubbed with only two very minor Oscars because liberals and atheists prefer to engage in liberal denial about the existence of the devil.
  11. The Great Escape (1963) starring Steve McQueen is considered the 18th greatest war film ever,[5] yet received zero (0) Academy Awards as liberals punished its conservative theme of hope and freedom.
  12. John DeLorean car, immensely innovative and popular in the Back to the Future trilogy, was essentially ruined by the liberal media that hates masculine cars, particularly American ones.
  13. The Searchers, a conservative Western considered to be one the greatest movies ever made, received zero (0) Oscar nominations.
  14. Witness, a fabulous movie respectful of the religious Amish and featuring top stars, received only two minor Oscars in 1985.
  15. Chappaquiddick, a widely praised independent film in 2017 that embarrassed liberal Ted Kennedy, opened above box office expectations but received zero (0) award nominations.
  16. The Passion of Christ (2004), won zero (0) Academy Awards and only three nominations, despite being one of the most talked-about and watched movies of the year.[6]
  17. Heaven Can Wait (1978), one of the most profitable movies ever made in terms of its ratio of box office revenue to production costs, was nominated for nine nearly entirely major Oscars and yet was awarded an Oscar only in the least significant category.
  18. North by Northwest (1959), a conservative movie about the Cold War, is considered one of the greatest movies ever and yet received only 3 minor Academy Award nominations and no wins.
  19. 39 Steps (1935), an Alfred Hitchcock thriller that is considered a masterpiece by Orson Welles and is ranked #8 of the greatest thrillers ever by Time Out, received no Academy Award nominations. Possible reasons could include its recognition of the treacherous world of spying, a characteristic of the communist Soviet Union, and how a church hymnal saves someone's life, could be reasons for this snub.
  20. Ben-Hur (1925), a masterpiece having an even more exciting chariot race finale than its 1959 remake, received no nominations or awards until 1997, when it finally won a National Film Registry historical honor.
  21. Blonde (2022), a movie about Marilyn Monroe with a pro-life theme, was punished with an unjustified "NC-17" rating, to hurt its marketability, and only one Academy Award nomination, for best actress,[7] who did not win.
  22. Jesus Revolution (2023), received no nominations for any awards in any category, despite having box office revenue greater than 4 Oscar best picture nominees.
  23. American Graffiti (1973) was one of the best, most influential, and greatest financial successes ever, and yet received zero (0) Oscars amid 5 mostly minor nominations.
  24. Smile (2022) was a spectacular box-office hit on a low production cost, grossing more than 10 times its cost, but it recognizes the existence of evil and includes some subtle, hilarious mockery of liberal attitudes. Result: zero (0) Oscar nominations, let alone any Oscar awards.
  25. Spellbound (1945) was a highly acclaimed film that was also a smash box-office hit, and boosted director Alfred Hitchcock to the prominence he receives to this day. This movie is also significant in giving credibility to psychiatry, and blending the artistic work by Salvador Dali seamlessly into the film. It received 6 Oscar nominations, yet was snubbed without a win in the 5 most prominent categories.[8]
  26. Field of Dreams (1989) was a conservative, historically accurate, father-son movie set in Midwest Iowa that was a smashing box office hit despite omitting Hollywood values, and was snubbed by only three nominations and no awards at the Academy Awards.
  27. Caitlin Clark twice won the college women's basketball player of the year, excels in the WNBA as the #1 draft pick in 2024, and draws the largest audience, and yet was passed over for the U.S. Olympics team in favor of underachieving liberal players, and Caitlin was likewise unfairly snubbed for the 3x3 Olympic team for which her three-point shooting prowess would be ideal.[9]
