Everything Oscars

Academy Awards info

There was a smoke advisory in Los Angeles yesterday.  Not from wildfires.  From Oprah's ears after she was snubbed by the Oscars.

Matthew McConaughey was nominated for "Dallas Buyer's Club".  He lost forty pounds for the role.  And evidently gave them to Jonah Hill.

"Gravity" scored ten nominations.  "Gravity", the movie.  Not what Bruce Jenner spends all that time in surgery trying to fight.

Martin Scorsese was nominated for "The Wolf of Wall Street".   He celebrated the news with his wife and eyebrows.

SCORSESE scored his eighth Oscar nomination for "The Wolf of Wall Street", which also earned LEONARDO DICAPRIO a nomination for Best Actor.  It's his fifth time being nominated.

MERYL STREEP secured her record 18th nomination for "August: Osage County".  Her competition in the Best Actress category includes JUDI DENCH, who received her seventh nomination and CATE BLANCHETT, who got her sixth.

In the Best Original screenplay category, WOODY ALLEN received his 16th screenwriting nomination . . . this time for "Blue Jasmine".

ABC is airing this year's ceremony live on Sunday, March 2nd.  ELLEN DEGENERES is hosting for the second time.  She also handled the 2007 show.

TOM HANKS did NOT receive a nomination for either "Captain Phillips" or "Saving Mr. Banks".  A few months ago, there was some thought that he could be nominated for BOTH movies.

EMMA THOMPSON also wasn't nominated for "Saving Mr. Banks".

ROBERT REDFORD was passed over for "All Is Lost".  When asked about the snub, Robert blamed it on the movie's lack of distribution . . . and the producers for not campaigning for the film to get the attention of the Academy.

Recently, the COEN BROTHERS' movie "Inside Llewyn Davis" had some momentum as a potential dark horse Best Picture candidate . . . but it didn't even get a nomination in that category.

In fact, it only got two nominations . . . for Best Sound Mixing and Best Cinematography.  Some people were also surprised it wasn't nominated in a music category, since it's about a musician and is filled with original music.

"Bad Grandpa" was nominated for Best Makeup and Hairstyling, along with the ESTEEMED JOHNNY DEPP movie, "The Lone Ranger".

"Saving Mr. Banks" was only nominated for Best Score.
