8 Biggest Omissions From The Oscar Nominations 2014
This year the most talked about decisions are those films and performances that were not chosen.
Oscar season always brings with it plenty of shocks and surprises. 'American Hustle' and 'Philomena' not being completely ignored were certainly two of the largest in terms of making the cut, but this year the most talked about decisions are those films and performances that were not chosen. Some of the very early front runners for Best Actor and Best Actress have been left out of the nominations entirely and a number of tipped films have been snubbed. So here is a list of the eight most glaring omissions from the 2014 Academy Awards shortlists. Which are the biggest mistakes and more importantly, with surprises so early on, is this a sign that 2014 will be a year with a shock like 1977 where underdog 'Rocky' beat 'Taxi Driver' to Best Film? As always expect spoilers if you haven't seen the films mentioned in the headings.
