Oscar nominations are in. Who deserved them? Who was snubbed?
Mamamia is proud to partner with Dove Invisible Dry for this year’s Red Carpet coverage. We are both committed to celebrating women, fashion, and the absence of white marks on their beautiful dresses.
The Lego Movie failed to get a nod in Best Animation, while Jake Gyllenhaal was snubbed for an outstanding performance in crime-thriller Nightcrawler.
Jennifer Aniston also missed out with her role in Cake, as did Amy Adams for Big Eyes.
Another big (surprise) snub? Australian film editor Kirk Baxter missed out with Gone Girl, which would have been the third Oscar win of his career.
For the movies that actually got some recognition, there was some good news: Birdman and The Grand Budapest Hotel, which each picked up nine nominations including best picture, were the biggest winners in the nominations.
The Imitation Game (featuring the glorious Benedict Cumberbatch) also picked up eight nominations, and American Sniper – the Clint Eastwood Navy SEAL drama – got six nominations, including best actor for Bradley Cooper, who most definitely reminds us of a little boy playing dress up that should stick to what he does best – RomComs.
Here are lists of the most talked-about categories:
American Sniper; Birdman; Boyhood; The Grand Budapest Hotel; The Imitation Game; Selma; The Theory of Everything; Whiplash.
Steve Carell – Foxcatcher; Bradley Cooper – American Sniper; Benedict Cumberbatch – The Imitation Game; Michael Keaton – Birdman; Eddie Redmayne – The Theory of Everything.
