Oscar snubs Tom Hanks, Emma Thompson, 'Inside Llewyn Davis': Which omission hurts the most?

The Oscar nominations were announced Jan. 16, and while we all congratulate the lucky ones, we can also lament those left off the list, starting with Captain Phillips‘ Tom Hanks, a two-time winner looking to snag his first nom since Cast Away in 2001 and his equally-decorated Saving Mr. Banks costar Emma Thompson, who hasn’t been nominated since Sense and Sensibility in 1996.

Inside Llewyn Davis is missing from the Best Picture and Best Actor races (but did score noms for Cinematography and Sound Mixing).

Which snub have you dubbed the most egregious? Feel free to tackle any category (no Blackfish in Documentary Feature?). 

UPDATE: Listen to EW’s Oscar expert Anthony Breznican react to Hanks’ Captain Phillips snub on Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM 105), phoning in to talk nominations with EW Morning Live hosts Dalton Ross and Jenna Morasca.
