The nominees are in so to quote the Joker from Heath Ledger’s Oscar winning performance in the Dark Knight, “And here…we…GO!”
This year the Academy nominated only 8 films for Best Picture. A very interesting group of films. It looks to be between Birdman and Boyhood, but don’t sleep on Sniper making it a race.
- American Sniper
- Grand Budapest Hotel
- Imitation Game
- Theory of Everything
First thoughts: No Lego Movie in Best Animated Feature!?!? No Life Itself in Best Documentary!?!? Thought Steve Carrell would miss out on Best Actor but he bumped his way to the front of the line! My worst movie of 145 films got a Best Foreign Film nomination as expected.
Expect more in depth commentary on who will win, who SHOULD Win, and any surprises or snubs along the way!
