LA Times and NY Times articles have speculated as to why the movie Dreamgirls failed to get nominated for Best Picture.
1) Too much marketing turned off voters
2) The voting system for the nominations favors movies that have an intense following, since the academy ranks the order of the 5 films which should be nominated. Dreamgirls had a lot of fans, but few in the academy who passionately supported it.
3) The movie was more popular with women, but 2/3 of the academy are males. This explains why the past Best Actresses have been: Reese Witherspoon, Hillary Swank, Charlize Theron, Halle Berry and Nicole Kidman to name a few.
