Oscar Snubs 2015: Jennifer Aniston, 'Lego Movie' & More Left Off the List

The 2015 Oscar nominations were just announced this morning – (see the full list of nominees here) – and many are buzzing about their favorite actors/actresses and movies being snubbed!

Fans are upset that Jennifer Aniston did not get a nomination for Cake – Marion Cotillard was the one who seemingly knocked her out of the running, as Jennifer was projected to get a nomination and Marion was not. Jake Gyllenhaal was also left off of the list for Nightcrawler. Both Jennifer and Jake did receive Golden Globe nominations for their work in their respective movies.

The Lego Movie was left off of the list for Best Animated Picture. Some even considered the movie a frontrunner for the prize because of its huge success.

One huge notable director snub is Ava DuVernay, who directed Selma. Selma did receive a Best Picture nomination, but Ava was left off of the list. David Oyelowo also did not receive a Best Actor nomination for Selma.

TELL JJ: Who else did you think get snubbed off the nominations list??
