Well, that was definitely something. After keeping you up to date with the menagerie of odd Oscar nominations, Josh Rosenfield shared his thoughts on these contenders. It’s safe to say the majority of people out there share his sentiments of “Huh?” I was able to find one positive tweet about the whole event but for the most part, lots of negativity in regards to the upcoming award show. Enjoy the unison of people complaining about the lack of a Lego Movie nomination (I’ll join them in a moment).
Shocked at some of the categories… but overall I think the Oscars got it 95% right, which is better than I usually do.

The Lego Movie isn’t up for the ‘Best Animated Feature’ Oscar? That is absolute bullshit.

SELMA and GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY have the same number of Oscar nominations. Yeah, sure, why not.

Forget Dern, I can’t believe MERYL’s turn in fluff like INTO THE WOODS beat out career-best work from Rene Russo & a great Chastain perf.

“SELMA? One of the best pics of the year. But the directing, script, all the acting, & cinematography? Meh. Nice song, though.”

Oscar snubs not all that surprising considering the demographics of the voting body. BUT NO LEGO MOVIE?! Come on.

Also, hilarious that BIRDMAN didn’t get an editing nomination. “There’s no cuts, so…I guess there’s no editing???”

Tonight, watch a great 2014 movie that wasn’t nominated for an Oscar.
