He always kept referring to his Oscar snub. As if the nomination belonged to him and he was wronged for not getting it.

I thought it was all a bit pathetic. I would have been more sympathetic had the film been any good.
I dunno, I watched all those acceptance speeches at the time, and you must have been watching them very differently from me, or indeed most people who commented on them. Ben came across as very humble and grateful, and any jokes he made about the Oscar situation through awards season were always in the vein of highly self-deprecating humour.
