This morning, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced the nominations for the 85th Academy Awards. Honoring achievements in film, the Oscars are highly anticipated by Hollywood and movie goers alike. The most prestigious of the movie awards, it is always exciting to see how the nominations stack up. This year’s nominees are a mix of the expected and the unexpected, with some heavy hitters and fan favorites passed over for relative unknowns. There are also a number of names familiar to annual watchers of the Academy Awards. It will be interesting to see how the newcomers do against seasoned veterans.
So far this awards season, I have only seen one of the nominated films. Most of these films are still in theaters, but if you’re like me and don’t have time to visit the movies, browse the HCPL catalog and request other movies featuring these nominated actors and actresses!
The Academy Awards air on Sunday, February 24th at 6:00pm on ABC. For a look at the entire list of nominations, visit the official Oscar website .
