2015 Academy Award Nominations

Birdman I believe got the most nominations with 9, and Michael Keaton should win for best actor. Disappointed that Snowpiecer and The Babadook at least didn’t get a nomination for best Foreign Language Film. Gone Girl was basically shutout outside of a Best Actress nomination for Rosamund Pike. I will be pulling for Boyhood and Birdman this coming Academy Awards.  I will have my picks for this years Academy Awards in the coming weeks.  For the for list of nominations read the article below that originates from Entertainment Weekly.
