Maybe this is just me, but complaining that the (by all accounts excellent) French film you haven't seen was chosen over the one you have doesn't seem too far removed from those people who watch 5 movies a year and are perplexed that Endgame wasn't nominated for BP
When did I make a value judgment about Les Misérables in that post?

What if we try to infuse our grumblings with just enough over-the-top bitterness to make it seem good-natured and mostly joking?

I'd bet swo is referring more to my repeated griping about it than your reasonable dissection of its Oscar hopes

I mostly just think it's funny that some people think Endgame was snubbed and wanted to shoehorn that into a post somewhere
