And the Oscar Will Go To….Oscar Nominations 2014

posted by Nell Minow

Wolf-of-Wallstreet-585x370This year’s Oscar nominees were announced this morning. I’m sorry to see “Inside LLewyn Davis,” “The Butler,” “Fruitvale Station,” “Saving Mr. Banks” and “Enough Said” overlooked and I really wanted to see Scarlett Johansson get a nomination for “Her,” but overall, it’s an impressive list that spreads recognition among some outstanding films.

    No Best Picture nomination for Frozen. I think I liked it better when the Academy at least pretended to respond to people’s complaints about their biases.

  • Toby Clark

    Once again, no animation in the Best Picture category, especially disappointing since Frozen was the best movie I saw in a cinema last year. I think I preferred it when the Academy at least pretended to respond to people’s complaints about their biases.

    • Nell Minow

      Yes, Toby, I think they achieved the goal in creating the animated category — we won’t see another animated Best Picture nominee for the foreseeable future.
