2015 Oscar Nominations: Shocking Snubs & Surprises

2015 Oscar Nominations Are Here! Who Got Snubbed?

The Academy Award nominations for 2015 have been announced. There were some obvious nominations and also some shocking names missing from the list. See the top snubs of this year and find the full list of nominations below. The Lego Movie got no love but was the fourth highest grossing box office film of the year. Twitter was not impressed:

However, Philip Lord, who wrote and directed The Lego Movie alongside Christopher Miller, had the best response:

Also, how did Jake Gyllenhaal not land on the list? His role in Nightcrawler was one of his best. It grabbed Best Screenplay but some acknowledgment of his hard work would have been nice.

David Oyelowo’s portrayal of Martin Luther King Jr in Selma was phenomenal but the Academy did not agree. After a snubbing him at the Golden Globes, it was thought the Oscars would show some love- not so much. Many were outraged at the fact that all 20 acting nominees of this year were white. It is only the second time in nearly 20 years that this has occurred. While Selma is up for Best Picture and Best Original song, director Ava DuVemay was also a shocking snub. If she received the nomination, she would have been the first African-American in history to do so.

Here are all of the nominations for the 87th Academy Awards:

Birdman: 9
The Grand Budapest Hotel: 9
The Imitation Game: 8
Boyhood: 6
American Sniper: 6
Whiplash: 5
