86th Annual Academy Awards Nominations are Here!

86oscars_logo

The nominations for the 86th Academy Awards have been announced! A lot of great competition this year makes for some hard choices when it comes to the nominees. I’m personally surprised that the Coen’s Inside Llewyn Davis has been left out of the running for Best Picture, Screenplay and Original Song as I thought that it was a shoe-in for all those categories. I’m glad to see Woody Allen and Richard Linklater getting a little screenwriting nomination love though I don’t anticipate them winning this year. I haven’t seen a few of the nominated movies yet but the buzz is that it’s going to come down to American Hustle and 12 Years a Slave. What do you think is going to take Best Picture this year? Are there any movies you feel got snubbed?

The Academy Awards for outstanding film achievements of 2013 will be presented on Sunday, March 2, 2014, at the Dolby Theatre and televised live on the ABC Television Network with Ellen Degeneres hosting the awards show.
