I think this a thread already


Never mind, the other thing was just spammy spam in disguise

I have yet to see frozen

1. The biggest surprise was Tom Hanks not getting nominated for Captain Phillips especially since the final ten minutes of the film contain arguably the best display of acting of 2013.

2. James Franco deserved a supporting actor nod much more than Jonah Hill.

3. I thought for sure Stories We Tell would be nominated for best documentary.

4. lol The Croods

5. I haven't seen Inside Llewyn Davis yet but I'm surprised it got shut out of everything aside from cinematography. I thought ever since No Country for Old Men the Coen's were academy favorites?

#5 Edited by Jag85 (4377 posts) -

Tom Hanks (Captain Phillips) or Idris Elba (Mandela) didn't get any acting nominations?

*clears throat*

Nebraska getting a bunch somewhat makes up for it.

People who haven't seen all or most of the best reviewed movies of the year have no business opining when award season comes. As for me, I see crappy American Hustle keeps getting nominated for awards 0.o Aside from Bale that movie felt flat to me.

Leonardo may finally have his shot to pick up an Oscar. I could also see Gravity winning cinematography some of those shots were fantastic. And if Frozen doesn't win best animated film I am so done.

The Good

Before Midnight
Ernest & Celestine
Sally Hawkins
Leonardo Dicaprio

The Bad

Tom Hanks in Best Actor. How anyone could watch those final five minutes and say he doesn't deserve a nod is beyond me. That was the finest acting of the year.
No Redford, Phoenix or Hawke (even though the latter was very unlikely)
Bale getting nominated over so many better performances ^

The Unforgivable

Stories We Tell getting shut out. Couldn't believe that. Although this better mean The Act of Killing is a lock
What does Linklater have to do in order to get some Academy love?
No major Inside Llewyn Davis nominations. Probably the biggest joke from these nominees. Not even Best Original Song or Screenplay? Come on.
American Hustle getting showered with awards for its mediocrity.
Jonze should have gotten a Director nod.
I know it was unlikely, but there are far more deserving actresses for the category. Larson and Adele should be there. It's easy to see why the latter wasn't nominated, but the former should be there. I guess that's what happens when the film is only screened in 75 theaters.

Jackass is now an Oscar nominated franchise. That is f*cking hilarious.

For your convenience.

Hmm I have a lot of catching up to do. From that list all I've seen are Frozen (which was awesome), Despicable Me 2 (which was fine), and Prisoners (not sure how I feel about it). :P

*Sees 10 nominations for American Hustle*...

Snubbing Inside Llewyn Davis is a borderline crime. Anyway, I saw Nebraska tonight and it was great. Really happy to see it getting that attention. Also glad Dallas Buyers Club didn't get snubbed like it did at the Golden Globes for best picture.

I absolutely loved American Hustle when I saw it so I'm happy to see it getting all those nominations. I have yet to see Gravity, but it just seems so overhyped.

Looks like Blue is the Warmest Color got passed over by and large as well.

EDIT: I see that Blue is the Warmest Color missed the deadline for foreign language film this year, so it will be eligible next year.

It's pretty fucking ridiculous. Inside Llewyn Davis is arguably the most critically acclaimed movie of the year along with her, Gravity, and 12 Years, and to see it get passed over almost completely is kind of upsetting.

Gravity should not be up for best movie of the year, it was fine as a one-time experience, but not as a movie

Gravity is probably the most "movie" of all of the nominations. It takes you back to a time when films were primarily considered escapism. I don't think there's been a better film than Gravity that exemplified that in a very long time.

Predictable award shows are predictable.

Anyways, I guess I will just cheer Gravity on as that movie was FANTASTIC! It BETTER win best cinematography!

@AFBrat77: That makes no sense, go put your head in a blender.

@SaintLeonidas: Did you even see it? My comment might make more sense then.

Not at all. 12 Years A Slave can be considered a "one time experience". You don't need to watch something repeatedly to appreciate it.

I've seen Gravity three times (twice at the cinema, once at home) and it's still awesome.

12 years slave won because People are afraid at Oprah's and Al Sharpton's wrath

This thread is over TWO MONTHS past its shelf life. There's really no need to be digging up old news.
