Oscar nominations for the 87th Academy Awards (Video)

I must say there were a more than few surprises this year.
I was struck by the fact that Rosamund Pike was the only nomination for “Gone Girl,” “Selma” only got listed for best picture and song, and the total snub for “the Lego Movie.”

I was upset to see “Whiplash put into the Adapted screenplay category, because it really is an original script, The only reason it was because it had already been produced as a short film. That decision is a bit questionable because the short was really just done to get investors for the full-length film. I’m glad to see both “Grand Budapest Hotel” and “Birdman” do so well.

About Lane J. Lubell
When I began this site, I was a student at "The Latin School of Chicago, and it consumed the majority of my waking hours, the remaining time was split between, making movies, hanging with friends, and spending time with family. Toss in eating and a few hours of sleep; and there was not all that much time left over. I provided that explanation to lower expectation of daily posts, and to point out that simply because I did not review a given film does not mean I did not find it worthy; more likely, homework took precedence. I am now attending Northwestern University where I'm enrolled in RTVF (Radio, Television, Video and Film) department. While I was very happy at Latin, and still go back to see each theater performance; I'm glad to be done with AP Calculus, and love that I get to take a larger percentage of classes focusing on literature, philosophy ,writing and film. I'm still just getting my feet wet here, but I have met some people that share my love of film and theater and we are already planing on some collaborations. Who knows, maybe I could even get a few of them to post a review here on CinemaShadow.com . I made this site not to "Talk to people" about films; but to 'Talk with People" about films. To that end; I would love to have others post comments, list their favorite movies, recommend films, new and old, that you think are worth watching.
