Its finally here. The Awards Ceremony every great movie of the year looks to have its name on, 87th The Academy Award nominations which were announced Thursday morning in Los Angeles.

And ofcourse, there were a few surprises regarding the snub of Selma in many categories and the director of the moving biopic, Ava DuVernay’s despite a nod for best picture got shut out. She will have become the first African American woman to earn an Oscar nomination for best director. David Oyelowo also missed out on a best actor nomination even though he gave an astonishing performance which was definitely one of the best of the year.

Another snub was that of Gone Girl which only earned one nomination for Best Actress. One would have expected an award in Best Adaptation category but it was a very tight category.

The Grand Budapest Hotel defied the myth of major Oscars nominations being picked from end of the year releases and tied with Birdmanwith the most nominations (9) and its great to see that Wes Anderson has become an Oscar favorite.

Bradley Cooper who got nominated for his great performance in American Sniper broke a new record by becoming the first actor in over a decade to score 3 consecutive nominations.
