Oscars 2015: BIRDMAN And THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL Top Nominees With Nine Each
Of course nothing will likely top when the Academy president accidentally nominated 'Dick Poop' instead of Dick Pope for his work in cinematography on Mr. Turner.
Other concerns include the nominations of nothing but white actors in all acting categories. Or how about the exclusion of women directors and writers from those categories? And then something else with less consequence - but still bloody damn important to me!!! - the exclusion of The Lego Movie from the Best Animated category.
Every year it is the same thing. Movies, actors and filmmakers you loved did or did not get nominated. Have a gander at the full list below.
