oh is it out already

i really hope birdman wins best film but they tend to go for more political themes over actual quality of material so i guess selma will win that.
i would have birdman clean up to be honest. going by the list i think they deserve to win most , film/actors/screenplay/di rector/
i would give supporting actress to the gone girl actress though

The golden globes were awful  think i only agreed with one award . so i hope this one is better.

they should update these awards though. and add a category for most entertaining or commercial or something. as it is a shame the big movies always get neglected just cause they done well or were too commercail. i,e guardians of the galaxy for example. 01/15/2015

The biggest outrage seems to be 1) The Lego Movie being left out of best animated film category. 2) The Roger Ebert film Life Itself being left out of Best Documentary (along with Jodorowsky's Dune).  3) David Oyelowo being left out of the Best Actor category.

I havne't seen nearly enough of the big films this year - but I hope Grand Budapest Hotel cleans up (granted, it's the only one nominated I've seen thus far so...) and Guardians of the Galaxy was a whole lot of fun - but, yes, it's not the kind of movie to get recognized for the serious awards.

The consensus seems to be that Boyhood is going to win Best Picture which I'm super stoked about.  Boyhood was my favorite movie of the year, and my favorite movie NEVER even gets nominated for Best Picture.

By the way.  I too was shocked when I found out that The Lego Movie was snubbed for Best Animated Picture.  This whole award season I thought it was a shoe-in to win, but it didn't even get nominated!  I guess I shouldn't even bother trying to win The Oscar pool this year.

Given the huge response to American Sniper over the weekend, I have to think it will also get serious consideration - movies that are fresh don't always win, but it should give it a major push going into the next few weeks. 01/20/2015

Even money is now on Birdman after its big wins at the SAG and Producers Guild wins. American Sniper may be dominating at the box office - but there has been too much backlash against it for it to become a serious contender (I still think it's a great film). 01/26/2015
