Selma should have gotten Best Picture.

 

The Actress category is Julianne Moore's to take. Surprised Amy Adams wasn't nominated. 

 

White men dominance!

Julianna Moore made the soap world proud last night. It was about time she got recognized by the Academy.

 

I have to see Birdman.

I know snubs are part of the game, but Ava DuVernay and David Oyelowo not getting nods for best director and best actor for Selma is disappointing.

I don't understand how the actors were shut out when the Selma is nominated for Best Picture. 

 

As a consolation prize, Common and John Legend were nominated for Original Song.

I'm rooting for Julianne Moore for best actress (Frannie Hughes FTW!), but Marion Cotillard sneaking in with a nom makes me nervous that Julianne may not win after all. I thought winning the Golden Globe for best actress would be enough to guarantee Julianne an Oscar win.

Yes there has been a whole lot of uproar online over the lack of nominations for Selma.  Many feel that this could hinder the films chances of winning best picture because its absent from other key categories such as Best Director.  I don't know much about the film Selma but then I don't know much about too many of the nominations this year. But from what I have heard about this movie it isn't any less deserving that the other nominees, so why was it snubbed out of the other categories.  Pains me to say this but I can see why some feel this is racist.  Wouldn't be the first time the Academy Awards got accused of discrimination there was also uproar at one time for them apparently snubbing female directors.

I forgot to mention her.

 

My least favorite are Patricia Arquette, congratulations on her win anyway. Gwyneth Paltrow, Kiera Knightly and Katie Cassidy.  There is nothing wrong with Scarlett Johansson's dress but her hair is a crime.

Lupita wore that dress like a glove and Margot Robbie served up some major style as well.

 

I'm a Lupita stan, so I love your new avi!

I have to see Birdman.

 

It was a long overdue win for Julianne Moore. I think her win was for her body of work as a solid actress, not so much for the movie role she was nominated for. I also love the fact that she still recognizes her soap opera background and isn't ashamed of it. 

 

 

As for the show, NPH was disappointing. He had a few okay moments but he's more suited for the Tony Awards so he can sing, dance and flame away (and I mean that in the most sincerest of ways).

 

This award season was lacking in A-list superstars. Meryl doesn't count because she's there every year as a nominee but you know when she's seated next to J. Lo. the star power was lacking. As much as I adore Lupita Nyong'o she would have not been seated front row center if Leo, George, Julia, Sandra, J. Law and Brangelina were in the house.

ITA that Julianne Moore's win was for her solid body of work; her performance wasn't Oscar worthy IMO.

 

Lupita's bone structure is insane. She could wear a sack and look good in it.

She's the only reason why I plan to go see Star Wars later this year. I hope she has a significant role.

I can't blame anyone for saying that it was discrimmination that kept Selma from getting more Oscar Nods.  After all, this is film that had all the elements that The Academy usually loves. It was based on a true story, it had great drama, it depicted an important moment in history so why else would it be snubbed in so many categories. 

 

 

Oh well, at least those involved in this film can figure out why this happened, I think Warner Brothers and those involved in the Lego Movie are still trying to figure out how this movie could of been snubbed in the best animated motion picture category.  By right it should of been nominated and been a top contender for the prize but instead, no nomination, which sort of left the field wide open for Big Hero Six to move in to take the award.
