2. Psycho (1960)

Psycho was nominated for four Oscars in 1960, including Alfred Hitchcock’s direction and Janet Leigh’s infamous supporting actress performance. Though the film is regarded as one of the most influential in the whole of cinema, perhaps the disturbing subject matter and revolutionary horror and suspense tropes used were just a little too much for the Academy to get on board with. Not everybody likes change!
