A few surprising/shocking snubs: no Jake Gyllenhaal for NIGHTCRAWLER, no LEGO MOVIE as best animated feature, no LIFE ITSELF for best doc.

I didn't check all your list but film editing is wrong. It should be


    American Sniper – Joel Cox and Gary D. Roach
    Boyhood – Sandra Adair
    The Grand Budapest Hotel – Barney Pilling
    The Imitation Game – William Goldenberg
    Whiplash – Tom Cross

Normally . . . ?! I won't comment on what I have not seen, but I do like to make an exception for the Oscars.

Oh, how the mighty have fallen. I can remember how "Lord of the Rings : Return of the King" swept the Oscars. Now you get to "The Hobbit : the Battle of 5 Armies" and you have 1 nomination for Sound Editing, which it may or may not win.

Well, one thing about the internet, as soon as something makes the news, people are immediately on the internet, agreeing or disagreeing with what they have read. Which leads to "The Lego Movie" and why it wasn't nominated for Best Animated Film. One of the reasons seems to be that while it was popular among populous audiences, it was not popular among people who make animated films or those animators who are members of the Academy, who thought there were 5 animated films that were better, or those 5 animated films that were nominated ahead of "The Lego Movie." As to why they thought it was better . . .?! I'd be interested in knowing.

With "The Lego Movie" not being nominated, they might as well give the Oscar to "Big Hero 6." Of the other films nominated in the same category, the one that I can see giving it any competition is "Box trolls," and I don't think that will be that competitive.

Disney/Marvel/Pixar . . .?! Would you rather have an international box office of over $4 billion or 9 Academy Award nominations?

Actually, just looking at this year's nominations, it looks to be one of the weakest years for films in Hollywood that I have seen.

What will next year bring . . .?! Considering how well "Star Wars : Episode IV" did in nominations, it'll be interesting to see how well "Star Wars : Episode VII" does, as it's release date is in December of this year.

No one pays attention to the minor awards like that anyway.  Wink

To be fair, the Actor category is even more pathetic than usual this year, so I can see why he'd forget it.

I copied the original post from another forum I frequent, stupidly assuming the person had all the categories and nominees correct.

Everything in thing first post should be accurate now.  Thumbup

To be fair I don't really keep track of movie awards, but it's kind of cool to see some movies in the best animated category that I thought looked really cool. Namely Song of the Sea and The Tale of the Princess Kaguya. I'm really looking forward to seeing those when they come out on blue ray or DVD that is if they're not out already.

I thought Unbroken would get more "important" nominations being the kinda movie it is. Would not consider it the best movie, but at least Jack O'Connell should have gotten a nod.

Just watched Birdman, and despite being a technically amazing film, I can't help but feel that some of it is just Oscar bait.  Everyone has a 'big scene'. 

I really liked Keaton in it, despite being a bit hammy, but I still think Ralph Fiennes deserved some sort of recognition for Grand Budapest Hotel.
