Generally I’m happy about the nominees, I think they got it right this time, just upset about Idris Elba and sound mixing for Straight Outta Compton snubs.
Agree with the Ridley Scott and Carol snubs; Rampling, Sicario’s score and When Marnie Was There inclusions.January 14, 2016 at 8:29 am #209288
I am pretty happy with the noms, especially the Rampling inclusion, but the Carol snubs in Picture/Director/Production Design and the lack of Ridley Scott cut deep.January 14, 2016 at 8:32 am #209289
I’m pretty happy, actually. I’m really happy that Tom Hardy got that surprise nomination and that Mad Max was not actually snubbed for Picture and Director and landed nominations for both. Also really happy about all the nominations for Brooklyn and The Revenant. Also, Rachel McAdams is now an Oscar nominee! Also very exciting 🙂
I mean, I’m pretty bummed that Idris Elba was snubbed and the lack of BONN at all (one of my favourites of the year) is disappointing. I would’ve loved to see Alicia Vikander for Ex Machina but really had a feeling it wouldn’t happen (and it didn’t). Overall, quite pleased!January 14, 2016 at 8:37 am #209290
Rampling, Rylance, Winslet, Blanchett, Fassbender, Hardy
Snubs for Todd Haynes, Ridley Scott, Carol
Jennifer Lawrence got another undeserved nomination
Mara and Vikander nominated in leadsJanuary 14, 2016 at 8:56 am #209291
Overall pretty happy actually.
However, I’m Unhappy about:
– Vikander in supporting for The Danish Girl. She should be a double nominee 🙁
– Lawrence getting in over Theron or Smith
– No Michael B Jordan (long shot) or Jacob Tremblay in lead
– Idris Elba and Paul Dano snubbed – even though I’m pretty happy with supporting actor overall
– No Straight Outta Compton or Carol in picture
– No See You Again in song 🙁
VERY HAPPY ABOUT:
– Brooklyn in best picture (I was scared it would miss)
– The Animated film lineup
– Lenny Abrahamson sneaking into director
– The Weeknd!!
– GAGA 🙂 🙂 🙂January 14, 2016 at 8:56 am #209292
I would be generally happy but the snubs for Maggie Smith and Aaron Sorkin are inexcusable.January 14, 2016 at 9:00 am #209293
Couldn’t be happier with these nominations. Incredible.January 14, 2016 at 9:15 am #209295
Mad Max Fury Road got 10 nominations
Jennifer Lawrence got another nomination for another mediocre performance.January 14, 2016 at 9:21 am #209296
Rocky Balboa is back on the ring.
Inside Out didn’t end up like The Lego Movie.
Carol missed Best Picture. WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED? And I thought the Academy is better than this.January 14, 2016 at 9:25 am #209297
I’ll step in for a hurrah for
Spotlight. And Mad Max. And Rampling. And Stallone. And Brooklyn, Ronan, Bridge of Spies, Rylance, Sicario, and some others.
More of a relief for me than anything.January 14, 2016 at 9:25 am #209298
I am so so so happy for Rampling that I don’t care for anything else! lolJanuary 14, 2016 at 9:39 am #209299
+ Mad Max: Fury Road getting Best Picture and Best Director nominations
+ Sicario getting a Best Cinematography nomination

+ “Manta Ray” getting a Best Original Song nomination
– The Hateful Eight for Best Original Screenplay
– Steve Jobs for Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay
– Idris Elba for Best Supporting Actor
– Ridley Scott for Best Director
I also hated The Danish Girl, and, in particular, Eddie Redmayne’s performance. I knew it would get nominated, but I’m not happy, especially when the likes of Johnny Depp, Michael Caine, and Samuel L. Jackson were all overlooked.January 14, 2016 at 9:41 am #209300
1. The Animated category – this branch has proved itself to be the most diverse of the academy, and has made, in these recent years, very smart choices. Boy and the World in made my day, I’m really really happy with it, such a wonderful movie. And Marnie is pretty good as well.
3. Mad Max Fury Road not becoming this year’s The Dark Knight
4. Tom Hardy is now an Oscar nominated actor
5. Ex Machina in original screenplay
6. Richardson nominated. Him and Morricone are the standouts in the newest Tarantino movie.
7. Labytrinth of Lies out of Foreign Language Film
1. Lawrence again. She’s, for sure, way better here than in American Hustle, but it’s not enough to be deserving of this nomination. Silverman, Smith, Theron would be better choices.
2. The lack of diversity in the acting categories – I wasn’t a militant for this cause last year (I found Selma just ok, and really enjoyed Dear White People, but that movie was under the radar), though this time it hurts. Sam Jackson was way more deserving of a nomination than Cranston. The same for Jordan. Cranston is a great actor but this performance is an over-the-top mistake. Alright, that movie is a mistake. Benicio Del Toro also deserved attention.
3. Carol out of BP and BD.January 14, 2016 at 9:42 am #209301
Cinderella for Costume Design
Jennifer Lawrence just to piss of the haters
Jennifer Jason Leigh
The Revenant overall
No Steve Carell or Johnny Depp
No Alicia Vikander in Ex Machina
The Mad Max love other than creative categories
No Kristen Stewart
No Cinderella for Production Design & Hairstyling/Makeup

I was hoping for some more out-of-field, yet deserving nominees. Everyone said “This year is crazy”/”The nominations will be all over the place”, but nothing that crazy happened. The Revenant over performed and The Martian under performed as expected. Jennifer Lawrence was nominated for a subpar performance in a terrible movie, while awesome performances like Sarah Silverman in I Smile Back were overlooked. Also, Carol being snubbed for Director AND Picture was a little much for me. I knew Todd Haynes would be snubbed, but at least Ridley Scott was too. Lenny Abrahamson getting into director was a little odd to me. It’s my favorite film of last year, but I didn’t really see it as a directorial achievement. Oh well!
