The imitation Game...

...has some stellar acting in it. It shouldn't be up for Best Picture or Best Director. Having said that, Keira Knightley's Best Supporting nominee is fairly inspired. I didn't expect it, but she did play a character a good bit different than I'd seen before.

A lot of good nominations and a lot of snubs, but am I the only one that just doesn't find Budapest to be that special. I get that Hollywood likes to suck Wes Anderson's dick, and I enjoy some of his movies, but the film never stood out to me as all that award worthy. I enjoyed it, thought it was funny, but like a lot of his movies, it never really stuck with me after I finished it. Maybe it's just me.

Totally. He was amazing and doesn't appear to have a lot of respect in that town... as well as the Gilroy boys.

Such a great, layered, satirical take on the media state in which we reside. Pity. But like I said, expected.

I agree. For me the best picture and director category should be the same. I mean it takes the director to make the movie. The Director is usually the person to blame if a movie is a hit or a bomb. Therefore, if a movie gets nominated for best picture I believe the director should get nominated as well. Vice versa.

Just my opinion.

This is a very spot on year. Big snubs are Steve James, Ralph Fiennes, & Lego Movie

I don't get why most are saying the biggest snub was Selma? It got a Best Picture nomination. So it did not get nominated for Director or Actor, it's not like it was going to beat Boyhood, Birdman, or Grand Budapest. The big snubs are the ones which were thought to be the likely winner of that category, i.e. Ben Affleck for director Argo. This year once again it's Steve James for Life Itself in the documentary category, previously snubbed for Hoop Dreams in the 90s. The next big snub is The

This year once again it's Steve James for Life Itself in the documentary category, previously snubbed for Hoop Dreams in the 90s. The next big snub is The Lego Movie for Animated Film, which I think could finally get the Academy to re-consider what Animation is today, cause Lego Movie is an Animated feature. I will say that a big snub was Ralph Fiennes. Did he have a chance of beating Michael Keaton? No way, but his performance should've gotten the recognition from the Academy. I would've preferred Fiennes or Gyllenhaal over Bradley Cooper.

Doesn't surprise me Aniston was snubbed here.

Considering the mixed reviews coming out of TIFF and not finding distribution right away, it felt like a vanity project for some desperate to be taken seriously as an actress and I sensed the Academy wasn't gonna be swayed by the same tactics used on HFPA and SAG.

I like Bradley Cooper but...

I don't think he deserves a best actor nom...I watched American Sniper last week and I'll say it's pretty good...but Cooper's performance was sub-par...I guess all it takes for a best acting nom is put on a southern accent and say "murica!"...what really disappoints me is that Nightcrawler got completely snubbed which I feel deserved a best picture nom and Gyllenhaal's performance was much better than Cooper's...just my two cents

I'm pissed that Steve Carell got nominated. He better not win...His performance never changed. He talked the same way for 95% of the movie and it wasn't in some captivating way. It was just so plain.

Lego Movie not nominated for best animated feature?
Big Hero 6 was mediocre at best nothing really distinctive about it. BoxTrolls had an interesting look, How To train Your Dragon 2 was very good but underperformed, and then you've got your usual arty and anime choices.
And no Interstellar noms for writing or acting?
I'm rooting for Birdman for best pic.

You have to hate the fact that films outside of "award season" don't get looked at for bigger awards. The Lego Movie is the prime example of that this year. Then you have Nightcrawler being looked over as well.

This is why I take these awards with a grain of salt.

Lego Movie not getting a nod over HTTYD2 was like the only true snub this year.

2014 wasn't terrible, just a lot of middling movies.
Whole lotta white dudes out there, but the problem this year was who would be nominated if not for the guys that got nominated? Need wayyyyy more women and minorities in the industry in general, because there aren't enough good ones to go around every year.

Nightcrawler shut out of Best Actor, Best Director, even Best Supporting Actress is a damn shame. Meryl Streep could film herself reading an instruction manual on high colonics and get a nomination...Redmayne and Cumberpatch nominations are disappointing, but those roles always get nominated or win: Russell Crowe in A Beautiful Mind, Colin Firth in the King's Speech, etc. i.e. milquetoast historical British dramas. The Academy will apparently be old white guys forever...

As for editing in Birdman... What editing?
Because the whole "it's all seamless" thing was all bullshit and really shoddy. It got exactly the nods it should've gotten IMO. Hopefully Norton wins, because holy fuck was he my favorite part.

Definitely some shocking snubs

Bradley Cooper, while very good in American Sniper, should not have been nominated IMO. I don't think Carell belongs on this list either. I'd switch those two out for Gyllenhaal and Oyelowo or Fiennes. Miller for Directing - I'd replace him with Damien Chazelle in a heartbeat. Would have loved to have seen Under the Skin nominated for Original Score - by far my favorite this year.

The IMDB Top 250 (as well as the Bottom 100) usually have new movies very high and then go down in the following year.

Outside of the visual effects category and the tribute to the actors that passed away last year, there's nothing that interests me about the oscars. Every other category seems like they just copied and pasted the same list of movies.

Biggest snubs: Lego Movie, Jake Gyllenhall, David Oyelowo, Jennifer Aniston?? (haven't seen cake), and I think that Birdman's editing was excellent, I thought that it would deserve at least the nomination. Very happy for Birdman, I hope Alejandro González and Emmanuel Lubezki win their categories!

You're right about Birdman being snubbed for editing.. I didn't even catch that. Although they must have contributed the continuous shot effect to cinematography as you alluded to. It will be interesting to see how much love the Academy gives Boyhood.

A very strong list of nominees in all the main categories. I know some people will be upset about nightcrawler and jake. But each of the nominees is deserving as well. Biggest snub is Lego movie for best animated film.

I think Gyllenhaal really deserved a nomination, as did The Lego Movie for best animated. That said, this is a great year for the smaller names, and some of the more recognizable names that don't generally get oscar buzz (like Carrell and J.K.). Look at best director... In the past four years we've had O'Russell, Scorsese, Spielberg, Tarantino, etc. This year, Wes Anderson might be the most recognizable name (a list that could have included Eastwood, Jolie, and PT). Overall, it's a refreshing

Overall, it's a refreshing change-up, especially knowing the Tarantinos and Di Caprios will likely be back with nominations next year (nothing against them). Also, Best Visual Effects is a really fun group this year.

I really hope Michael Keaton and Rosamund Pike win. But The LEGO Movie not nominated for Animated Feature Film but for Original Song instead? It's like Tron Legacy not nominated for Best Visual Effects years ago.

So happy to see American Sniper be nominated for so many awards. Especially for Best Film and Best Actor. The film was brilliant and terrific in every way and is my favorite film of the year.

Really surprised to see no big nominations for Nightcrawler; especially for Gyllenhaal for Best Actor. It was one of the best films of the year and Gyllenhaal along with Cooper gave the best all around performances of the year.

And no Best Animated feature for the Lego Movie?? Really??

Keaton is the only one I can see winning the awards that you have listed. I think Supporting actor goes to Simmons, Actress to Moore, and Supporting Actress to Arquette.

Still have yet to see Whiplash! Gotta get on that. But Emma Stone was good in Birdman. And Pike definitely deserves Best Actress.

Yeah. Whiplash was terrific and once you see it, you'll understanr in minutes why Simmons is going to win.

But I would love to see Pike and Stone win for their respected roles. Especially Pike considering how great and dark her character was in Gone Girl.

I think Eddie Redmayne is going to win Best Actor.. Incredible performance. I loved Keaton, but Redmayne's performance would be hard to beat any year.

I'm absolutely astonished that Jake Gyllenhaal hasn't been nominated for Nightcrawler. What a joke it is.

Totally agree. Should have been nominated over Carrell for Foxcatcher in my opinion. The guy has been knocking it out of the park for years and it sucks he wasn't nominated for Prisoners and/or Nightcrawler.

Non-shocking subs. Love that. And yes aside from the obviose blockbusters like Interstellar and Guardians Tatum was more deserving of a nomination that Carell.

I'm really surprised with Budapest considering how early it was released. I thought unfortunately most people had forgotten about it.
