James Gandolfini's untimely death in 2013 gave extra exposure to this romantic comedy from director Nicole Holofcener, leading to much speculation that the actor might receive his first Oscar nomination. Though Gandolfini grabbed posthumous nominations from the Independent Spirit Awards, the SAG Awards and the Critics' Choice Awards, an Oscar nomination just wasn't going to happen. Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Holofcener were also snubbed.
