Hollywood producer Bob Yari lost his legal bid to get an Academy Award retroactively.Yari was one of six credited producers for the 2005 movie "Crash". Crash won three Academy Awards, including best picture.

However, the Academy only listed two producers.

Yari sued, claiming the snub damaged his reputation, but a California Appeals Court rejected his claim Wednesday. The court said private organizations are free to make their own decisions when it comes to awards.
