Well, the day we (or at least I) have been waiting for has finally arrived: THE OSCARS NOMINATIONS HAVE BEEN ANNOUNCED!!!
You can find a full list of them here: http://oscar.go.com/nominees
But I’m only going to list the animated nominations here:
BEST ANIMATED FEATURE:
DESPICABLE ME 2
ERNEST & CELESTINE
THE WIND RISES
BEST ANIMATED SHORT FILM:
GET A HORSE!
ROOM ON THE BROOM
All I can say is that WHY WASN’T “MONSTERS UNIVERSITY” NOMINATED FOR BEST ANIMATED FEATURE?! Granted, it wasn’t epic, but no other animated film this year was at the level of “Frozen” and “Monsters University” was sooo much better than “Despicable Me 2”! Oh well!
I can’t comment on the animated short films as I haven’t seen any yet.
The only other problem I have with this year’s nominations is that “Saving Mr. Banks” only got ONE nomination (Best Original Score)! I’m not saying that it should have got a PLETHORA of nominations, but it DEFINITELY should’ve been nominated for Best Actress (Emma Thompson). Oh well!
Before the Academy Awards occur, I’ll post my predictions here for all the categories. In the meantime, how do you feel about the nominations? The animated ones in particular?
