The 2014 Oscar Nominations

Coming off the one-two punch of The Golden Globe Awards and The Razzie nominations, here come the 2014 Oscar / Academy Awards nods, the be-all and end-all for awards season. A lot of your favorites are here, although I’m sure there’s a snub or two to complain about. Seriously though, poor Tom Hanks … he’ll be fine, but still. Anyway, the complete list of nominees via HuffPo (I’m sticking my initials next to my picks. If MK is so inclined, he will too! Speaking of MK, wish him a happy birthday!)

Somewhere out there, James Franco is just seething that his character from Spring Breakers didn’t get a nomination. Likewise, I’m sure Shia LaBeouf is looking at the nominees for screenwriting and shaking his head. “I wrote all of those! How dare they not credit me when I clearly created all of those movies all by myself! What kind of asshole would refuse to acknowledge someone else’s work for the sake of taking all the glory for themselves?”
