It’s Oscars time!!! The Golden Globes are behind us, and today the Oscar Nominations have been announced. This year it really seems like there is no CLEAR winner, as it has in the past. This year, the movies nominated for Best Picture – really are – ALL amazing movies. Movies nominated for Best Picture are: “American Hustle,” “Captain Phillips,” “Dallas Buyers Club,” “Gravity,” “Her,” “Nebraska,” “Philomena,” “12 Years a Slave,” and “The Wolf of Wall Street.” In my ever-so-humble-opinion, I think it should go to TWOWS, but I haven’t seen several other movies in this category. Sure “Nebraska” looks good, but it kind of looks boring as hell.
I’m glad to see “Gravity” up there for BP, because it was definitely one of the year’s best movies.
“Gravity” and “American Hustle” lead the pack with 10 nominations, but “12 Years a Slave” is close behind with nine.
But Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street” notched nominations for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Supporting Actor and Best Actor, so it’s anyone’s game! The “shock” from the nominations is probably the fact that Leo was nominated for Best Actor, and Tom Hanks wasn’t (for “Captain Phillips”). I think Leo deserves it!
OK: PS….. Jonah Hill was nominated for an OSCAR. And it’s not even his first time! He was nominated for ‘Moneyball!’ With that said, he deserves it. He was brilliant in TWOWS.
