‘The LEGO Movie’ snubbed. I mean, what the actual fuck?January 15, 2015 at 4:15 pm #173851
Actually…it was The LEGO Movie snub ):January 15, 2015 at 4:22 pm #173852
No The LEGO Movie. Truly, truly shocking.
FYC: Ready Player One. Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, Visual Effects, Original Score, Production Design, Director and BEST PICTURE (make it happen Oscars!!)January 15, 2015 at 4:22 pm #173853
This is a jaded opinion but, I went with Dragon all along, although I didnt anticipate Lego being shut out. But when I look at Animation winners, well…….Lego is simply too “smart” and has a lot of pop culture references that would leave many in the dust.
Nightcrawler, not surprised. (see, Lego)
Cotillard getting in? No. The film is ok and she’s the most memorable thing in her vehicle. That face and voice of hers is often enough.
No Editing for Birdman. O-oh……
Biggest surprise for me?
Laura Dern. Way to go Laura. Adore her work, but didnt see this one coming.January 15, 2015 at 5:01 pm #173854
Other: The LEGO Movie getting snubbed.January 15, 2015 at 5:14 pm #173855
Definitely Lego Movie’s snub. From this list, I will go with Miller getting nodded but no Best PicJanuary 15, 2015 at 5:22 pm #173856
I voted for Miller just because I kind of figured we were basically done with lone directors nomination with the expansion, but the real biggest surprise was definitely The Lego Movie. That was pegged as the most likely winner all yearJanuary 15, 2015 at 5:24 pm #173857
You guys should have heard me. I had been saying Lego Movie was going to be snubbed since the Globes, when it finally clicked me – the branch wasn’t going to nominate someone who’s an outsider in their craft. It’s the same reason Wild and Gone Girl didn’t make it in Adapted Screenplay – these are writers, no screenwriters.
Cotillard shocked me, but those two nominations for Inherent Vice did even more soJanuary 15, 2015 at 5:29 pm #173858
Gone Girl getting snubbed for pretty much everything mostly Adapted Screenplay
No Lego Movie in Animated
Life Itself not being in Documentary
Inherent Vice getting anything
Birdman not in editing
8 nominees but Foxcatcher and Gone Girl being the victims
David Oyelowo snub
Robert Duvall actually making the cut
Laura Dern actually making the cut
Mr. Turner for score
All the Sniper love

Cotillard. Thank goodness. It took a lot of great roles after her Oscar win to finally get a second nomination.
The Lego Movie… Still hurts. Not that the line-up is bad, but cmon…
Cooper. They really like him, don’t they?
The Salt of the Earth making it. It was in my predictions, but it was more like wishful thinking.
Ida for Cinematography!! What a pleasant surprise!
I never believed Duvall would make it for that godawful film. It makes even less sense to snub Brolin when Inherent Vice actually got nominated for anything else.
Gyllenhaal not among the nominees is really sad.
I had Foxcatcher in Directing and Writing, but never believed it would be nominated for those 2 without a BP nod!
And finally, Selma. I had Selma being completely shut. But then it made the BP lineup and… Original Song? If that wins, it would be one of the worst of recent years, and I’m not fond of many of this category’s winners.January 15, 2015 at 7:22 pm #173860
Outside of the Lego Movie getting ridculously snubbed it’s Gone Girl getting only one nomination. I thought for sure it would’ve gotten both Best Actress AND Best Adapted Screenplay noms at least.January 15, 2015 at 7:33 pm #173861
I would say Bennett Miller because he came two surprises. 1. Being nominated when hardly anybody thought it would happen and then 2…realizing he got in but the movie didn’t.January 16, 2015 at 12:59 pm #173862
I went with the nightcrawler snubs… I thought it had a lot of buzz.January 17, 2015 at 4:24 am #173863
Dern getting in over Chastain/Russo. Was a nice surprise though.
Cotillard was somewhat a surprise.
Nightcrawler, I think, was on the bubble, so I wasn’t sure whether it would make BP. I even had a small feeling Gyllenhaal would get snubbed.
But, I was stunned when Gone Girl got snubbed for BAS and of course, The Lego Movie getting snubbed.
