The nominations for the 87th Annual Academy Awards were announced this morning and the following seven movies were nominated for Best Picture:
The Grand Budapest Hotel
The Imitation Game
The Theory of Everything
Of the seven movies nominated, I have only seen one - Boyhood. I saw it last August with my brothers in Toronto. None of us liked it all that much. I mean the concept of shooting a film over 12 years is unique. But when the movie ended I felt like 12 years of my life had passed and not in a good way. I simply didn't find the story to be very compelling.
