Being nominated for the Oscars is something big each year. This is why the majority of the actors and actresses wait for the nominations to appear eagerly.
Some of the celebrities, such as Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Lawrence, and Matthew McConaughey had good reasons to wait for the nominations, them being on the list, while many other well-known stars and hot-shot movies did not make it.
According to the film critics, this might be one of the best movies of 2013. It has been nominated for Best Original Screenplay and Best Picture. However, the film critics failed to recognize the hard work of director Spike Jonze and the lead star Joaquin Phoenix.
Inside Llewyn Davis
This is another one of the best creations of 2013. It is a folk music saga directed by the Coen Brothers. Even though the majority of the people expected more from it, it only got nominated in Cinematography and Sound Mixing whereas the talent and hard work of Oscar Isaac were completely forgotten.
This is one of the first major roles for years of Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Her work in the movie has been appreciated by many and generally speaking, the critics were really praising the film which has been written and directed by Nicole Holofcener. Still, the movie received no nominations.
All is Lost
If there is something this movie is known for, it is the work of Robert Redford. The star has received a Lifetime Achievement Oscar and a directing Oscar, but he never had an individual Oscar. Even though this film has been considered one of the best, it did not receive the nod of the jury.
For a long time now the star has been considered a favorite of the Oscars. However, this year he did not receive a nomination for Saving Mr. Banks and Captain Philips.
Emma Thompson, the costar of Tom Hanks also received Oscar Awards before, but on this occasion, she has been shut out as well.
Although there are a lot of disappointed actors and actresses, some of them had a pleasant surprise.
For example Sally Hawkins has been nominated for Best Supporting Role for her work in Blue Jasmine where she worked with Cate Blanchet.
There is also Jonah Hill who has been nominated to the same award for his role in Wolf of Wall Street.
We can expect this year’s Oscars to be more than thrilling.
