Congratulations to all of this year's nominees. Quite an interesting selection this year, not only with nine Best Picture nominees again, but a lot of odd picks and tough snubs. Inside Llewyn Davis got the worst, only ending up with two nominations (Cinematography/Sound Mixing) but absolutely nothing else. Nothing for Blue is the Warmest Color, not even Adèle Exarchopoulos for Best Actress. However, I am very happy to see Spike Jonze's Her end up with multiple nominations, including Best Score. I'm also quite happy to see 12 Years a Slave and Gravity leading the way. There's much to discuss, but it should also be exciting to see who goes on to win in March. Will 12 Years go all the way, will Gravity sneak in for the win? We'll see soon.

Quantified: David O. Russell's American Hustle and Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity were the top films, with 10 nominations in total each; next came Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave with total of 9 nominations.

No Pacific Rim for VFX, shame. The people working on that deserved a nom. Also it's a little surreal seeing Lone Ranger in that running. I didn't watch it, and I'm sure it's there due to great work but what's a western doing in there, you know?

OfficialJab on Jan 16, 2014


I do not agree with the FX of Pac Rim. Lone Ranger, while a campy shit fest did have some impressive spectacle, that looked really good. Pac Rim, for me, looked a little plasticy.

Brian Sleider on Jan 16, 2014


Pacific Rim was snubbed for both sound categories. I thought Gravity was going to have to fight for that one.

Duane on Jan 16, 2014


I was going to mention them, but don't really know what they look for. The underwater sequence is pretty memorable for the sound.

OfficialJab on Jan 16, 2014


To be Honest Pacific Rim was too cartoonish looking, I liked the film but the effects weren't really the best thing from it, but I still give props to the designs I was just in Barnes and Noble and saw Guillermo Del Toro's book of ideas and god damn that man is a creative and storytelling genius! I wouldn't watch Lone Ranger, I watched the first 20 minutes and I could not watch it anymore it's just too boring, I usually watch everything when it comes to content with most movies but with the lone ranger along with Battleship, Ghost Rider 2, and the twilight films are just films that I just can't watch at all.

Fidel Reyes on Jan 16, 2014


Bit upset to see that Rush has been completely snubbed.

I'm sad Tom Hanks didn't even get a nomination. The last scene of Captain Phillips was one of his best, most emotional moments on screen ever.

Joseph on Jan 16, 2014


That was one of the acting highlights of the year (at least!) for me as well. (Disclaimer - didn't get to the theater for a lot of these.)

avconsumer2 on Jan 16, 2014


Indeed.. For me it made the movie of the year just in that scene...

Gonsa Sba on Jan 16, 2014


true! it was impressive...

Avi on Jan 17, 2014


Had me totally convinced! Tom Hanks is oscar worthy.

Rock n Rollllll on Jan 22, 2014


great to see Miyazaki get another best animated nod for his final film! elsewhere, it's American Hustle vs Gravity vs 12 Years a Slave, so no surprises. i wouldn't want to try and pick a winner from Picture, Director, Actor or Supporting Actor, they're all full of genuine heavyweights (like Joey has been saying), strong enough to elbow even Hanks out of the running. elsewhere, there's some playing safe in the Actress category, with both Academy favourites Dench (who i love) and Streep being given nominations for very good but not outstanding performances. it's going to be a tight year, the only lock-downs for me are Gravity for Cinematography and The Act of Killing should win for Documentary Feature. but you never *really* know how the Academy's members will vote. regardless of who wins a *statuette*, if nominated films, roles and other categories get more recognition and are seen by more people, then everyone wins.

son_et_lumiere on Jan 16, 2014


No real surprises here.

Brian Sleider on Jan 16, 2014


biggest snub for me is Julie Deply for best actress. I thought her performance should have been nominated and Sandra Bullock should be taken out. Don't give me wrong, I thought Ms Bullock was great, but I just fancied Ms Deply one more

me on Jan 16, 2014


A lot of good stuff! My three favorite things: All the love for Spike Jonze, The Great Beauty and Blue Jasmine noms!

DavideCoppola on Jan 16, 2014


Wow. All is Lost got totally snubbed. I also expected nominations for Hanks, Redford and minor ones for The Butler (costume, set decoration... but Im glad Oprah wasnt nominated... still love her though.) My biggest disappointment is Ed Sheeran not getting nominated for his amazing song 'I See Fire' from The Hobbit...

Duane on Jan 16, 2014


it's a tough one, for sure, but out of Bale, Ejiofor, Dern, McConaughey and DiCaprio, who would you have dropped to get Hanks or Redford in? i'd say all have a good case. you might as well spin a bottle - maybe they did?!

son_et_lumiere on Jan 16, 2014


McConaughey dropped!

Rock n Rollllll on Jan 16, 2014


Where's Rush...

Chiroptera Exsanguination on Jan 16, 2014


Hopefully Disney finally wins Best Animated Feature with Frozen unlike last year where it got snub just because the morons at the Oscars tend to be bias in favor of Pixar. But the oscars more often than not are unpredictable and The Wind Rises might win just because Oscar voters tend to get sentimental when a director who is long past his glory days pulls a stunt move and announces his retirement. And as much as I didn't care for it, I'm surprise Monsters University wasn't nominated but The Croods was, like seriously WTF.

lars on Jan 16, 2014


Very Happy to see Michael Fassbender contending for best supporting actor again, however i'm pretty sure the Academy will favor Jared Leto's comeback. Leto's performance was very good, but not as deep or intense as Fassbender's role. It will be an interesting race.

Zade_92 on Jan 16, 2014


Two time Academy Award nominee Jonah Hill.

Isildur_of_Numenor on Jan 16, 2014


now *that's* something i never expected to see written down a few years ago! i'm not a huge fan of his, but that's impressive.

son_et_lumiere on Jan 16, 2014


Who would've thought! Hope This Is the End 2 happens just so we can hear him brag about it.

Isildur_of_Numenor on Jan 16, 2014


McConaughey won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Drama, DiCaprio won it for Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical. It'll be interesting to see which one of them, if any, wins the Oscar for best Actor. In my opinion, neither would be a bad choice...I think DiCaprio has deserved an Oscar for a long time, and I think it would be fantastic for McConaughey to win it, because he's pulled a serious career turnaround. Plus, McConaughey having won an Oscar would only help build more buzz for his starring role in Interstellar.

Chris Groves on Jan 16, 2014


If McConaughey wins an Oscar over DiCaprio, WE F******* RIOT!!!

Rock n Rollllll on Jan 16, 2014


He IS long overdue...McConaughey can win one for Interstellar 😀

Chris Groves on Jan 16, 2014


Hoping The Wolf of Wall Street gets some wins. Same with American Hustle...they were two of my favorites from awards season.

Chris Groves on Jan 16, 2014


wow, no Sound City documentary nomination, what a shame

Tester on Jan 16, 2014


So they gave a nom to a movie that isn't really even a movie. American Hustle.

speedracer on Jan 16, 2014


movie or not, it was still good

Adam Lubicz on Jan 16, 2014


I get that you're trying to diss American Hustle but I'm not sure why you're saying it wasn't a movie...

Chiroptera Exsanguination on Jan 16, 2014


It just felt incredibly disjointed, just a bunch of scenes that never felt complete. I think David just tried to hard to be something that he's not. It was enjoyable. Just don't get the hype.

speedracer on Jan 16, 2014


Barkhad Abdi is getting so much praise, and this was his first film to star in! He must be feeling pretty damn awesome to get nominated for an Academy Award, Golden Globe Award, and may other things. Congrats to him and to all the nominees, I personally don't know who to root for especially in the supporting actor category, I'm betting Leto will win but all those nominees were pretty damn good in my book.

Fidel Reyes on Jan 16, 2014


Tom Hanks, Robert Redford, Joaquin Phoenix, Oscar Isaac

Professor_Bedlam on Jan 16, 2014



IamSlave on Jan 16, 2014


What about Prisoners? Seems everyone forgot about it, just a nod for Deakins. Sure it has issues (mostly genre related) but it's an impressive movie if you ask me.

Isildur_of_Numenor on Jan 16, 2014


Jonah Hill was great, but I definitely didn't expect to see him nominated. Hope Barkhad Abdi wins the award though. Always go with the underdog.

Nielsen700 on Jan 16, 2014


American Hustle for best picture, editing and script??? Wow. Now that's a hustle.

SV7 on Jan 16, 2014


I miss Jake gyllenhaal as best actor for prisoners!
