    Doctor Strange better win visual effects. Those in 3D were amazing.

    Also for those wondering why "your name" is not in the animated film nominations it count as a 2017 movie. It would be in next years Oscars. Looks like dory didn't get the nom.

    And thus Suicide Squad is now an Oscar Nominated movie.
    And Star Trek Beyond? Seriously?

    Too bad Deadpool couldn't get nominated for anything.

    So I've actually managed to see 5/9 films nominated for picture. Arrival, Fences, Hell or High Water, Hidden Figures, and La La Land. The two I definitely wanna checkout are Moonlight and Hacksaw Ridge.

    Also, Suicide Squad nominated for an Oscar. Nuff said.

    No Deadpool!? Disappointing.

    Though, I think this is how Star Wars gets that VFX oscar it missed from last year. unless Hollywood wants to give it to DeepWater Horizon.

    Jungle Book honestly deserves the VFX Oscar. Movie was stunning and practically nothing but CG.

    I'll pile on with the disappointment about Deadpool especially when shit like Lion got nominated. Some nonsense.

    Meh, I was kinda hoping that they would have given Deadpool a node.

    I think my only hope is that Mona wins for best song as I want Lin Manuel To win an EGOT.

    La La Land may lose a few categories but it's 100% not losing Best Original Song.

    Wow, just wow, the Oscars this year are a load of crap. Not even a single nomination for The Nice Guys? Yet Suicide Squad gets a nomination.? Someone got paid of.

    And Kubo got seriously gypped.

    Nice Guys got forgotten by everyone. Suicide Squad got a costuming nomination it isn't as big a deal as you're making it out to be.

    It got a Best Animated film nom and a best VFX nom what more could you possibly want? It's narrative held it back from contending for Best Picture which animated films historically don't get nominated for anyway.

    Gee, the movie about Old Hollywood filmmaking got 14 nominations from the Old Hollywood filmmakers' association?


    Fuck off Academy of Motion Pictures.

    That's still something. Nice Guys deserved a costume nomination. Deadpool deserved a costume nomination. Doctor Strange should have too. Hell, they only have three movies in that category, surely the former 2 could have been included on there. Why didn't Hail Ceasar get one too?

    It's narrative was absolutely beautiful and far better than some of those choices on that list.

    It's no use, Doctor. Animated films will never be respected by the Academy.

    Since Zootopia got the Golden Globes I'm hoping Kubo or Moana takes the Oscar. Lin Manuel Miranda is getting screwed out of his own Oscar, maybe at least he can say he worked on an Oscar-winning movie

    Lucas Hedges was really good in MBTS. To get laughs in that movie took some effort. Not saying he should win (Ali has it wrapped up from everything I've read), but I was glad to see him get nominated.

    Please explain how the Academy could do more to "respect" animated films.

    Its narrative wasn't special though? Like it was a fetch quest towards the final showdown. Yes the animation was awesome, yes the characters were fun, but the narrative was something I've seen countless times.

    I remember when Beauty and the Beast was up for Best Picture.
