Barbara Hershey in 'Black Swan'

While her "Black Swan" costars Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis were nominated for their roles in the supernatural ballet drama, 62-year-old Barbara Hershey was overlooked, despite what many deemed a comeback supporting role as a domineering mother. "Barbara was great, taking something that could have been one-dimensional and making it a lot more interesting," director Darren Aronofsky said. "But I'm not worried. There are still a lot more great roles to come for her."
