Foxcatcher not there for BPnis a bit odd, given Miller is nominated for director.

The Lego Movie is perhaps the biggest surprise, but maybe it was too early, I honestly thought I saw it in 2013. There are a bunch of good but not outstanding films in the category. Ghibli might get it as a send off and to recognise Takahata, but not sure if many would have seen it.

Gone Girl being snubbed might upset some. Maybe it's too much a genre piece, but I'd imagine American Sniper can't be that much better. Also, after 12 yrs last year, the field is pretty much all white.

I hope Boyhood can win one of the big ones.

Also, Gone Girl should be nominated in pretty much every category but it's not a biopic or a patriotic wank-fest so it's been ignored. Really don't get the suggestions that it's a genre piece though Timbuktu?

I just thought there may be a snobbish attitude towards adaptation of a best selling crime thriller. The source isn't exactly high brow and it is probably still more popular than the film.

Boyhood is nailed on for Best Picture isn't it? Thought about putting some money on it but the odds are not worth it. Had a look about a month ago and it had some pretty tempting odds (4/1 I think) but decided against placing a bet. Now it's 1/16.

Possibly I guess, when you consider it as a crime thriller or, as a friend did recently, an erotic thriller (?!), there's merit in excluding it, but I just assumed that as a phenomenally crafted piece of entertainment it would be all over the Awards.

I genuinely think it might be Fincher's best work, and that's a high watermark to achieve, but if you consider that the Social Network was nominated, it shows how the Academy has such a hard on for biopics.

I hope Marillon Cotillard sneaks a 2nd Oscar, she was so good in Two Days, One Night.

Lovely to see a Dardenne Bros film get a nomination in a major category at least :)
