Interesting that Ex Machina’s SCREENPLAY beat out both Aaron Sorkin’s STEVE JOBS script and Quentin Tarantino’s THE HATEFUL 8…

Hell, JOBS could have been conceivably placed in the ADAPTED or ORIGINAL categories, and it made it to neither.

I also really thought Idris Elba would get a Nomination for BEASTS OF NO NATION. Heck, the film had a good shot, it’s totally OSCAR-friendly type storytelling.

It could be some time before a day and date release gets an Oscar nom.

And big BOO for not nominating Charlize Theron for Fury Road. (If they can nominated Sigourney Weaver for Aliens, this should have been a no-brainer.)

The Academy did a great job with CINEMATOGRAPHY nominations this year. Those are all gorgeously shot films. (Only noticeable miss there is THE ASSASSIN)

I’d have liked to have seen Macbeth nominated too.

The fact that MAD MAX: FURY ROAD received ten nominations astonishes me. Granted, most of those nominations are in technical categories, but it is a film that I liked, but did not love. I’m probably one of those people who believe that the praise for the film has gone a little far (even though it won the CAST Awards, it was nowhere near my top ten). I would rather a film like EX MACHINA get recognized, instead of receiving a mere two sympathy nominations.

I also have to mention that THE LOOK OF SILENCE is without a doubt the best of the films nominated for Best Documentary. It almost sickens me that the award is quite likely going to go to the more populist AMY.

I just took a more measured look at the nominees and realised that Ridley Scott wasn’t nominated. WTF!

The Martian was one of the best directed movies of the year.

Seriously? No, Idris Elba? That was one of the most insanely powerful performances. Also, I can’t be the only one who thinks Michael B. Jordan was pretty damn deserving for Creed also, maybe even moreso than Sly (who was good, but Jordan still carried the film).

Rick Vance

Why is Jennifer Jason Leigh in there for Supporting? Is it just politics to not campaign for the lead spot.

Kurt Halfyard

In this case, I agree. Due to the ensemble, there are no clear leads in Hateful8. I’d be more surprised if she was nominated for lead.
