2014 Oscar Nomimations


The 2014 Oscar nominations were presented this morning (5:30PST is entirely too early, Who chose this time?) by Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth and new Academy president, Cheryl Boone Isaacs.  Many of the nominations weren’t surprises, but some of the snubs were big ones (No love for the Coen Brothers, Tom Hanks, or Fruitvale Station but yay for Jonah Hill, Christian Bale and The Square).

2012 Emmy nominations were announced this morning and there were shocking nominations at all. They were announced by Late Night With Jimmy Kimmel’s own Jimmy Kimmel and Scandal‘s Kerry Washington (chick looked specially fresh-faced for it being 5:30 in the morning L.A time).  Kimmel showed up in his pajamas to read the noms because of the ungodly hour. He was his hilarious self as usual and brought a breath of fresh air to the usually stiff nomination reading.

AMC’s Mad Men and FX’s American Horror Story landed the most nominations with 17.  Hatfield & McCoys (History), Breaking Bad (AMC), Game Change (HBO) and Modern Family (ABC) also earned multiple nominations. There were many first time nominees including Bill Hader (Supporting Actor Comedy, Saturday Night Live, NBC), Zooey Deschanel (Lead Actress Comedy, New Girl, FOX), Max Greenfield (Supporting Actor Comedy, New Girl, FOX),and Lena Dunham (Lead Actress Comedy; Writing For Comedy, Directing For Comedy , Girls, HBO).
