The 2015 Academy Awards were announced this morning and, personally, they were pretty disappointing.  Tons of huge snubs, lots of movies I’m not really interested in seeing getting nominations and more (how The Lego Movie did not get a nomination for Best Animated Picture is going down as one of the most infamous snubs in Oscar history).  One of the bright spots though was Birdman getting tons of love, with Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor and Bes Support Actress nominations and Grand Budapest Hotel was right along with it.  American Sniper also had tons of nominations.  Check out the full list of nominees below.
