Like every year, the Academy Award Nominations are announced in the end of January as the ceremony takes place in the end of February. This year the Academy Award ceremony will be on February the 24th. I will not bother with much introduction cause I know you all know what Oscars are all about.


Best Motion Picture of the Year
Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role
Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role
Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role
Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role
Best Achievement in Directing
Best Writing, Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen
Best Writing, Screenplay Based on Material Previously Produced or Published


More nominations can be found in the complete list of the IMDB website and in the official Oscars website. This year I don’t have the same exact feeling that I had last year. I think most of the movies from last year deserved their nominations where this years movies do not deserve their nomination at all. This might has to do with some movies that we haven’t seen yet, and maybe my taste in movies. Don’t you think that ‘Juno’ is a little bit over-rated? It’s the same thing with what happened last year with ‘Little Miss Sunshine’. I would to see your opinion and discuss a little bit about the nominations.
