    So disappointed that I didn't get a chance to see "Birdman." It looked really good and this nomination really caught me by surprise. Now I totally gotta see it!

    American Sniper looks like a sick movie. I can see it winning Oscar.

    I'm both dissapointed and sad Nolan was snobed at the best director category.
    Come on guys of the Academy. His movie was a visual eyegrasm for ****'s sake.

    I got to see both Birdman and American Sniper to decide but I'm pretty sure Boyhood will get it...

    Indeed. It's a disgrace.

    Nightcrawler getting completely snubbed is also ridiculous.

    From what I read in various sites the reason why lego movie got snubbed is because the Academy didn't find any artistic merit behind the movie.
