Sorry Folks, No Image Is Here.

The 89th Academy Awards nominations were announced this morning. Is it just me or is this Oscar season underwhelming? Not really any movies to root for, at least that’s my opinion. La La Land led the nominations with 14, while Moonlight, Lion, Manchester by the Sea and Hacksaw Ridge got a bunch too. No Deadpool but come on, did you really think that was going to be nominated? Thomas Newman got nominated for Passengers, which is an excellent score. Don’t think The Lobster got much, which is a shame. Hell Or High Water? This movie that looked like some throwaway movie that was released in August. Hmm ok. Honestly, there’s not a lot of surprises here since these mirror other awards. Big giant MEH.
