Since one of the only things I do now on this journal is talk about movies, it's time for the mostly-annual response to Academy Award nominations post.

In summary, WTF.

It's not that this is a rare year where things are questionable, but it's impressive how deeply questionable the nominations list managed to be this time around. Usually, you get one or two "snubs" that are judgement calls among a previously-implied list of candidates that have managed to get awareness. The actual awards night is where outrage happens.

Not so much for this year. If you're reading this, you presumably care at about these things like I do and are familiar with the general bewilderment expressed about it. My two cents to add are below the cut )

Usually, I make it to ten or so completed categories by the time the awards happen. This year, I've only got one (Best Supporting Actress), and I'm unlikely to make it much further due to my total lack of interest in American Sniper and Foxcatcher. (Mr. Turner also contributed, but remains an outside chance to see.) I have better things to watch.
