The following are the oscar nominations for 2015.
I shall add a few comments on these then post my predictions nearer the time of the ceremony.
Well.... WTF, where the hell is the Lego Movie?!? I considered this a shoe in for best animated film and it isn't even nominated. I shall repeat again.... WTF. This alone made me consider boycotting the whole damn ceremony!
I am also surprised by the absence of Jake Gyllenhaal for best actor for Nightcrawler. I may not have been enamoured by the film as much as the people, but the central performance was simply brilliant.
My last rant is that Gone Girl is also not nominated for Best Picture and Best Director when it was clearly the best film of 2014!
