    These nominations are absolutely delightful! And Best Actress line-up is the one to die for. Loves it! And look who’s nominated. That’s right. You’re gonna see her nominated for a lot of awards this season cause she fucking deserves it. Slay them, Dame Kate!

    Why did JACKIE get snub for Best Feature and Best Screenplay?

    Each category has their own group of panels that choose their nominees.

    Blue Jasmine, Room, Dallas Buyers Club and Still Alice was also ignored in all other categories except for their Leading Actors.

    Not really on topic for the Movie forums but thrilled to finally see the brilliant The Girlfriend Experience nominated for something.

    Love the guaranteed win for Moonlight’s ensemble. I don’t think much of its Oscar chances, but SAG have got to embrace such a terrific ensemble!

    Moonlight and Manchester by The Sea can still get snubbed just like Carol.

    I have a question, why wasn’t La La Land nominated for anything?

    1) The movie is being distributed by Summit Entertainment and Lionsgate just like “The Hurt Locker.”
    2) Its budget is lower than 12 years a Slave, the GrandBudapest hotel, The Tree of Life and The Descendants.

    I hope Jessica Jones wins the Series Award, because even though Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is better structured and written overall, Jessica Jones feels more important and culturally significant. Plus, it would be appropriate to Award a female superhero show right around the time we elect our first female President! 😉

    I hated Love & Friendship, I turned it off during the last 15 minutes. It should win nothing, NOTHING!

    Still haven’t seen Manchester by-the-sea and Moonlight, and I’m only really excited by the latter.

    Is O.J. Made In America eligible at the Spirit Awards?! I didn’t see it because I already saw the majesty of the Ryan Murphy miniseries, and I felt like that was all I needed to see. I know it’s eligible at the Oscars, but the Spirits, I thought the budget was too high, considering how many episodes the “movie” was? I’m so confused here! 🙁

    Also, where is 13th? That snub stands out to me. I still haven’t seen the movie, but you’d think the critical acclaim it received would have made the DeVernay doc a lock for a nomination, at the very least.

    Moonlight and Manchester by The Sea can still get snubbed just like Carol.

    Carol wasn’t snubbed, sorry. It got 6 nominations, more than it deserved. It getting nominated for Best Picture or Director would have been a travesty, and made #OscarssoWhite all the more unbearable, for me anyway. Sad enough Brooklyn and Spotlight got in over Straight Outta Compton and Beasts of No Nation, far better movies IMO, that just happened to have black casts! That was so embarrassing.

    I think Moonlight could still get snubbed in some major categories, although Selma (ALSO produced by Moonlight’s Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner) getting a BP nom makes me think they can maybe pull off the same for Moonlight. If it’s campaigned well enough, who knows? Anything’s possible. Well, except Suicide Squad or Gods of Egypt getting any Oscar nominations, but that should be obvious. 😀

    Glad to see some love for Jeff Bridges in Hell Or High Water, an absolutely fantastic performance from him and a fantastic film in general. The nominations for Manchester By The Sea and Moonlight make me very excited to see those movies.

    “Love & Friendship” was robbed of a Best Feature nomination.

    La La Land’s budget is rumoured to be way over $20 million, with a few rumblings that it could be over $30 million. That by definition means it is not a small budget Independent film.
