6 Nomination Snubs for the 87th Academy Awards

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences announced the nominations for the 87th Oscars this morning. While some movies like Boyhood, The Grand Budapest Hotel, and Birdman were nominated for multiple awards, there were some very notable movies that didn’t get any love and consideration from the Academy. Here are 6 nomination snubs for the 87th Academy Awards.

    1. Selma. While Selma was nominated for Best Picture and Best Song, the movie wasn’t nominated for Best Director for Ava DuVernay and Best Actor for David Oyelowo. The movie is probably one of the most relevant and important movies in 2014 and I have a feeling that we’re going to be talking about Selma long after the 87th Academy Awards.
    1. The LEGO Movie. Although The LEGO Movie was one of the highest grossing and best reviewed animated films in 2014, it wasn’t nominated for Best Animated Films. It was released in February 2014 and it had staying power for almost a year. You can take out How to Train Your Dragon 2 and put in The LEGO Movie and you’ll be set.
    1. Life Itself. One of the most popular documentaries of 2014 about one of the most celebrated film critics of all-time, it seems like Life Itself, about the life and career of Roger Ebert, was a lock for a nomination for Best Documentary.
    1. Nightcrawler. It seemed like Jake Gyllenhaal was the dark horse for Nightcrawler, but he was shut out this year. He’s still very young, so he’ll get his chance one of these years.
    1. Gone Girl. One of the biggest and most talked about movies of 2014, Gone Girl didn’t receive a nomination for Best Picture, Best Director for David Fincher, and Best Adapted Screenplay for Gillian Flynn. It seemed like it would’ve been nominated for more, but Rosamund Pike was nominated for Best Female Actor in a Leading Role.
    1. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part One. While it doesn’t seem likely that The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part One would be nominated for one of the “Big Five” spots, it seems like Lorde’s song “Yellow Flicker Beat” would’ve gotten a nomination.

The 87th Academy Awards will air on February 22, 2015 on ABC. For a complete list of all the nominations, check out Oscar.com.
