I agree that The Town got snubbed but I also thought that Affleck put in a really good performance.
Just my personal opinion here.
I think Affleck is a bum as an actor. His best performance was in Good Will Hunting, he got a big time name, and has been in movies that just weren't all that good. I thought that he did a nice job of acting in the Town especially since it was a Boston movie. But I think that guys like Mark Wahlburg and Matt Damon who are both from Boston are better actors but play that type cast better. The Fighter and The Departed are two more recent movies where those guys nailed the Boston (Lowell) character.
Don't get me wrong Affleck put up one of his better performances in The Town. I just think the two aforementioned actors are better and do have more weight with the acting community.
