Oscar Awards 2015 – Nominees Revealed, ‘Selma’ Snubbed | Film News


The annual Academy Awards reach a prime age of 87 this year, and the nominees have officially been revealed. The big four categories (Best Picture, Director, Actor and Actress) feature a long list of nominees, all representing the same features in the categories, so not much variety.


Benedict Cumberbatch gets his first Oscar nod with The Imitation Game, whilst previous winners Julianne Moore and Marion Cotillard expect to see further gongs in their trophy cabinets. However the biggest news of the nominations news is the Academy Awards snubbing the critically acclaimed Selma in the Best Actor and Best Director categories.


The show is set to take place on February 22 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California, and will be hosted by Tony Award favourite Neil Patrick Harris, so expect to see some awesome stage pieces and showstopping music numbers.
