    And nothing for Jennifer Aniston, even though she would have been eligible as Cake is an indie film.

  • Goopita

    Marion Cotillard was amazing in The Inmigrant.

  • Seriously

    Also not on the list were Benedict Cumberbatch and Reese Witherspoon, both of whom were eligible.

  • St

    Yep. Poor thing. She showed up at every event and gave interview to ever magazine to share how brave she was to get ugly for a role. And now nothing,

  • JesChastain

    That’s not surprising, though. These awards aren’t particularly serious. Look at the nominees. These judges deliberately pick people who aren’t likely to get nominated for other awards. Julianne Moore (and MAYBE Marion Cotillard) is the only serious Oscar contender in her category, for example. I’m sure The Imitation Game and Wild will get plenty of nominations from elsewhere. I just thought this was Aniston’s best shot at any kind of nomination, since the judges are known to make off-the-wall picks.

  • i♥britboys

    the awards are very serious, they just favour indie films and they are mostly anti-Oscar. No wonder Marion was nominated for ‘The Immigrant’ and Tilda for ‘Only lovers left alive’, while both have been trying to get into the Oscar race this year but with different films. It further proves how these awards are anti-Oscar and serious, they value the indie films exclusively, without taking any interest in awards campaigning and strategy

    Jake Gyllenhaal needs to win! I am hoping for an Oscar nod too! He is so intense and amazing in all of his performances, except for that one film which we shall not mention ;)

  • Dirk_Reese-Fan

    Congrats for ´Inherent Vice´ and ´Nightcrawler´, yup !

  • alex

    and reese where she’is?and she win the oscar?my dead,hide it with your family,in tennessee!!!!!!

  • alex

    where is reese ?and WILD?ahahahahahahahahahaha……..

  • Stergios

    I am so happy to watch an extraordinary performance like the one the brilliant Marion Cotillard delivers in The Immigrant being preferred than a performance simply solid and typically Oscar-bait by an undeniably talented but also undeniably limited actress like Reese Witherspoon. From the bottom of my heart, I really hope that the same happens at the Oscars. The one thing I want in regards to the Oscars of 2015 is to watch the insuperable Marion Cotillard at least being nominated (and not be snubbed again, as it happens consistently the last seven years!) for either of her towering performances in The Immigrant and Two Days, One Night. She HAS, HAS to be there this time. And actually she HAS to win. There shouldn’t be any competition this year, only Marion Cotillard as a lock for the win in the Best Actress category.
