    Thanks very much

    What did you think of this years nominations, any surprises/disappointments? I think Nightcrawler deserved a Best Picture nomination with Gyllenhaal for best actor as well. Plus no Lego Movie for animation was odd.

    The Lego Movie was a MASSIVE surprise.

    I love Nightcrawler, but I guess it isn't a very Academy-friendly film really. I'm surprised Jennifer Aniston didn't get a nod for Cake (I haven't seen it but I've heard she is unbelievable in it and it's different to anything she's done before), Selma isn't up for Best Director and Foxcatcher isn't up for Best Picture.

    I'm not too upset because frankly I hated The Lego Movie.

    Never seen Aniston in a dramatic role, so I look forward to seeing Cake, that and Still Alice are going to be pretty bleak it seems. I wasn't as taken with Foxcatcher as you I think, I was surprised Bennett Miller got a directing nod TBH. Much prefer Moneyball.

    Moneyball's great, but something about Foxcatcher just stuck with me long after I'd watched it. Don't get me wrong, it's a difficult film to love, but it really affected me.

    This is how the Academy I think will vote. Not who I would choose- for me Eddie Redmayne would win best actor and Marion Cotillard best actress.

    I had to do this as my media homework! I haven't seen most of these films, so I'm almost entirely guessing.

    (not sure what's going on with the formatting, but I can't really resolve it)

    Best Picture

    American Sniper


    Best Actor

    Eddie Redmayne, The Theory of Everything




    Best Actress

    Rosamund Pike, Gone Girl


    Best Supporting Actor

    Mark Ruffalo, Foxcatcher


    Best Supporting Actress

    Keira Knightley, The Imitation Game




    Best Director

    Richard Linklater, Boyhood


    Most Awards taken on the night - Interstellar. I think it'll dominate the technicals (like Inception did), and end up with the most overall Oscars.
