The 87th Academy Awards Nominations Released


By Amirose Eisenbach January 16, 2015


The 87th annual Academy Awards nominations were announced this morning. Some of the anticipated films and talent were recognized and as is the case every year, others were left off or as many believe, snubbed.

Leading the pack for the big awards is Boyhood, Birdman, The Imitation Game and The Grand Budapest Hotel. Some of the big films and performances that were excluded that many consider snubs include The Lego Movie for Best Animated Feature Film, Jake Gyllenhaal for Best Actor for Nightcrawler, David Oyelowo for Best Actor for Selma and Ava DuVernay for Best Director for Selma. Jennifer Aniston also shined in Cake but was not included on the Best Actress list.
