And the Nominees Are: Analyzing the 87th Academy Awards Nominations

Okay. So we have our nominations, so now let’s analyze them, see how I did, and see what it all means.

If you notice, not really once during this whole thing have I really got into what’s going to win and all that. Which is because, to me, the season is split into two halves… what’s gonna be nominated, and what’s going to win. I’m not gonna say what’s gonna win until I know what’s nominated. And I guess both. So now, we’re just hitting halftime, and starting tomorrow, it’s all second half.

But before we close the book on the first half and get started on the second, let’s see what got nominated, if we all saw it coming, talk about what surprised us, what seemed like a weird choice, and then completely forget about it. After this, I don’t care about what’s not here (I might mention it, but from here on out it’s irrelevant to the proceedings), it’s only about the categories and nothing else.

Pic of the Day: “Alright, listen up, people. Our fugitive has been on the run for ninety minutes. Average foot speed over uneven ground barring injuries is 4 miles-per-hour. That gives us a radius of six miles. What I want from each and every one of you is a hard-target search of every gas station, residence, warehouse, farmhouse, henhouse, outhouse and doghouse in that area. Checkpoints go up at fifteen miles. Your fugitive’s name is Dr. Richard Kimble. Go get him.”

And the Nominees Are… (2014)

It’s now just before 6 am Los Angeles time, and the Oscar nominations have just announced.

Only idiots like me are awake right now. I could have waited and just saw the entire list posted once they were done, but I didn’t. I got up, and I sat out and typed up this entire list as they said it. Because that’s what I do.

The Oscars are my thing. I can’t explain it. This is what I’m willing to get up at 5 am for. I can’t explain it. Ask any girl I’ve ever dated. Actually, don’t do that. There are a few things I’ll get up at 5 am for.

Anyway, here are your 2014 Oscar nominations: (more…)
