86th Academy Awards

Nominations Thu 16.Jan.14 • Awards Sun 2.Mar.14

Rich's comments: Oscar voters returned to their more mainstream ways this year - there isn't a single wildcard nomination in this bunch. (The only nice surprise was Ernest & Celestine.) Glaring omissions in the acting categories include Tom Hanks, Robert Redford and Emma Thompson - but there wasn't an undeserving acting nominee anywhere. The most egregious snubs were for Inside Llewyn Davis and Fruitvale Station, with The Butler deservedly ignored. As he did last year, David O Russell secured nods in all 7 top categories for American Hustle, making it by consensus the best of the year even though it won nothing at all. All of the other winners were as predicted; in a year of strong dark horses, only one (Her's screenplay) one took the prize. Otherwise, watching the ceremony the feeling was mostly one of relief for each 12 Years a Slave triumph. Gravity deserved all the technical accolades, but nothing else, really.
