    third class nominations

  2. sputnik 9 years ago

    Thanks @cr7 for making the post.

    I can’t get into dashboard from work but will add a picture later.

    I just don’t get what is so great about Boyhood. Just because Linklater shot a movie over a long period of time and let his actors really age on screen its a big deal. Does it have any great story to tell? No. Does it have any great scenes that I can still recollect? No. The way they are going with these nominations they will probably hand out the Best Picture and Best Director to Boyhood.

    The Imitation Game deserves its nomination. Gone Girl and NightCrawler both should have been nominated for Best Picture.

    Good to see Rosamund Pike being nominated for Gone Girl. That’s a well deserved nomination.

    Benedict Cumberbatch deserves his nomination for The Imitation Game.

    I have seen only part of Foxcatcher and I thought Steve Carell’s performance was such a Oscar bait with all the prosthetic make up and looks like the Academy fell for it. Jake Gyllenhaal deserved a nomination.

    Nightcrawler deserved a Best Director nomination.

    Patricia Arquette nomination is good for Boyhood but Keira Knightley wasn’t that great to be nominated for Best Supporting Actress.

    Ethan Hawke deserves his nomination for Boyhood. Whatever bits I have seen of Foxcatcher Mark Ruffalo was good and deserves his nomination. Even Channing Tatum was good.

    No nomination for Gone Girl for Adapted Screenplay?

    Good to see Nightcrawler being nominated for Original Screenplay

    Gone Girl should have got a nomination for Original Score.

    Foxcatcher being nominated for Makeup is a joke as you can clearly tell its prosthetic make up when you look at Steve Carell.

    oscars are the american equivalent of filmfare – that is dogshit

    • sputnik 9 years ago

      There is no comparison between Oscars and Filmfare. They are some problems with Oscars but they are no where near the problems with Indian awards.

      At Filmfare/Screen the biggest hits get awards and its usually just a few stars who keep getting awards. And they invent new ridiculous categories to award them.

      • Baba 9 years ago

        “At Filmfare/Screen the biggest hits get awards and its usually just a few stars who keep getting awards.”

        hollywood also nominates and awards ppl based on their brand name. that is why a crap film like wows gets nominated in so many categories last year.

        “And they invent new ridiculous categories to award them.”

        golden globe has worse categories than any indian award.

        • sputnik 9 years ago

          Yes getting nominated because of brand name is a issue. Like I said

          “golden globe has worse categories than any indian award.”

          No one can beat Stardust Awards when it comes to worse categories.

          Golden globes has stupid way of splitting into Drama and Comedy/Musical. They are famous just because they are precursor to Oscars and those who get nominated/win have a good chance at the Oscars.

    Lowest-Grossing Best Picture Nominees Since Category Expansion

    The Grand Budapest Hotel is currently the highest-grossing Best Picture nominee with $59 million.

    January 15, 2015

    As was widely expected, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences announced a slate of Best Picture nominees on Thursday morning that have gone largely unseen by general moviegoers so far.

    Ahead of nominations, the eight movies nominated for Best Picture had earned a combined $203.1 million. That’s the lowest total since the Academy expanded the field beyond five nominees—and by a large margin, too. The previous low was 2011, when the movies had earned a combined $519 million ahead of nominations.

    The highest-grossing Best Picture nominee this year is The Grand Budapest Hotel, which is writer/director Wes Anderson’s biggest movie ever with $59.1 million. Budapest opened back in March—a few weeks after last year’s Oscar ceremony—and is already available to watch on HBO. Therefore, don’t expect any kind of serious theatrical re-release here.

    The Imitation Game ranks second with $42 million. The movie has held up remarkably well since its nationwide expansion on Christmas Day, and is currently out-pacing fellow Weinstein Company release The King’s Speech. With an added boost from these Oscar nominations, The Imitation Game has a real shot at reaching $100 million.

    Birdman and The Theory of Everything rank third and fourth with $26.5 million and $26.1 million, respectively. Each of these movies should get another major push, and could wind up near $40 million total.

    In fifth place is Richard Linklater’s Boyhood, which has earned $26.1 million and is still playing in a few theaters throughout the country. The movie has been available on DVD for a week or two now, though, and probably won’t get a noteworthy theatrical re-release.

    Selma ranks sixth with $15.6 million, though it will likely move up the ranks quickly in the coming weeks. The movie just expanded wide on Friday, and should do well over the long Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend. Ultimately, look for this to earn at least $40 million total.

    Whiplash has so far earned just over $6 million, which is good for seventh place. The movie opened way back in October, but still hasn’t received a nationwide release. There’s a good chance that changes in the next few weeks, though it would be surprising if it dramatically changed the movie’s box office prospects: even with a big push, the indie drama probably won’t get above the $10 to $12 million range.

    Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper is currently the lowest-grossing Best Picture nominee with $3.3 million. Ironically, though, it seems poised to be the highest-grossing nominee when all is said and done. That entire $3.3 million has come from just four theaters—two in New York, one in Los Angeles and one in Dallas—where it’s been doing absolutely exceptional business. It now holds three of the top five biggest per-theater averages ever for a live-action movie playing at more than two theaters. It wouldn’t be surprising if it set the January opening record when it expands to 3,200 theaters this weekend.

    The highest-grossing category, as usual, was Best Visual Effects. The five movies—all major blockbusters—earned $1.22 billion in the U.S. and over $3.6 billion worldwide.

    First Look: Leonardo DiCaprio Gets Grimy In Alejandro González Iñárritu’s ‘The Revenant’ Story sounds interesting and it has Tom Hardy too.

    If you think Birdman was extreme filmmaking, wait until you see what Alejandro González Iñárritu has in store for his follow-up. Shooting this month in Calgary (average nighttime low: 9 degrees) the writer-director has partnered with Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy to tell the true story of Hugh Glass (DiCaprio), an American fur trapper and frontiersman in the early 1800s. After being mauled by a grizzly bear and left for dead, Glass made a heroic 200-mile trek back to civilization to find the men who abandoned him in his time of need, played by Hardy, Will Poulter, and Domnhall Gleeson.

    You’re not coming up with any Oscar prediction post this year ? 😛

    • sputnik 9 years ago

      No. Haven’t seen many of the movies nominated.

      Have not seen Selma, The Grand Budapest Hotel from movies nominated for Best Picture. From the ones I have seen I want Birdman to win Best Picture but they might give it to Boyhood.

      Have not seen Still Alice but she is supposedly winning Best Actress according to everyone. I want Rosamund Pike to win for Gone Girl though. Felicity Jones was good in The Theory of Everything too. Have not seen Wild or Two Days One Night.

      Have seen all the Best Actor nominated movies and its between Michael Keaton and
      Eddie Redmayne. I think Eddie Redmayne will win but Michael Keaton could win too. Both are equally well deserving performances.

      I want Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu to win Best Director for Birdman but they might give it to Richard Linklater for Boyhood. Have not seen The Grand Budapest Hotel as I don’t like Wes Anderson movies. Liked The Imitation Game and Foxcatcher was ok too.

      Patricia Arquette was good in Boyhood and so was Emma Stone in Birdman. Keira Knightley does not deserve an award for The Imitation Game. Have not seen Meryl Streep in “Into the Woods” and Laura Dern in “Wild”.

      Have not seen Robert Duvall in “The Judge”. Mark Ruffalo was good in “Foxcatcher”. Ethan Hawke was good in “Boyhood”. Edward Norton was good in “Birdman”. But J.K. Simmons is the one who deserves it for “Whiplash” and I am sure he will win.

      Have not seen any of the Foreign Language Films that have been nominated.

      In Adapted Screenplay category have not seen Inherent Vice. This is a difficult category. Liked The Imitation Game. Found screenplay of Whiplash somewhat contrived. The Theory of Everything was good too. American Sniper is all heroic whitewashing of Kyle’s biography.

      I want Original Screenplay to go to Birdman or Nightcrawler but it might go to Boyhood.
      Have not seen The Grand Budapest Hotel.

      Cinematography could go to Birdman for all that one shot take feel. Have not seen the rest of the movies nominated.

      Makeup and Hairstyling might go to Foxcatcher but I did not like Steve Carell’s prosthetic makeup.

      Film Editing might go to Boyhood. I think it should go The Imitation Game. Have not seen The Grand Budapest Hotel.

      In Sound Editing American Sniper and Birdman were good but have not seen the rest.

      • sputnik 9 years ago

        As predicted J.K. Simmons wins Best Supporting Actor for Whiplash. Well deserved win.

      • sputnik 9 years ago

        Make Up and Hairstyling goes to The Grand Budapest Hotel. So does Best Costume Design.

      • sputnik 9 years ago

        Best Supporting Actress goes to Patricia Arquette

        Best Sound Editing goes to American Sniper

        Best Sound Mixing goes to Whiplash

        Foreign Language Film goes to Ida (Poland)

        • Evil Prince 9 years ago

          Liked Ida, it was good but didn’t found it great. Haven’t watched any other film that was nominated in the same category. Didn’t find subs for Tangerines & Wild Tales, was/is more excited for the latter though. I do have Leviathan aka Leviafan, will be checking out that in coming days.

          • sputnik 9 years ago

            I had downloaded Leviathan but it had no subtitles. So did not watch it.

      • sputnik 9 years ago

        Best Visual Effects goes to Interstellar

      • sputnik 9 years ago

        As I said Best Cinematography went to Birdman for all that one shot take feel.

      • sputnik 9 years ago

        Glad that Best Original Screenplay went to Birdman

      • sputnik 9 years ago

        Happy that most of the movies or performances that I wanted to win won.
