Well ladies and gents it's that time of the year again - Oscar season! With the annual Academy Awards set to kick off in just over a month the Academy did us all a solid by announcing this year's nominees yesterday. The only problem is our beloved genre got snubbed hard.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying there was a lot of genre stuff that should've been there... but only one nomination for DRIVE? That's just absurd... So what did get nominated?
