87th Academy Awards










87th Academy Awards 


Broadcast Date: February 2015 - Australia


Greetings, film enthusiasts and critics
everywhere, once again the official
nominees for the 2015 Academy
Awards has been announced. The
ceremony will be hosted by famed
movie and television actor, four-time
Emmy Award winner Neil Patrick Harris.

Although I wasn't hit hard that 'The
Lego Movie' has been left out the
ballot for the Best Animated Feature group award and though most movie-goers are displeased with this exclusion. But I think the real truth behind it is that the Oscar adjudicators thought that the feature isn't fully animated enough to be received by that award.

Also, the more coming surprise happened in the best animated category is 'Big Hero 6', I've heard all the great things about the movie and it's happened for me unexpectedly that I didn't get to watch it. I have felt so hard on not watching a full-length animation made by Disney since I largely ignored 'Frozen' of seeing it and most of the blokes that don't like Disney princesses would soon find it overrated. Naturally, if 'Big Hero 6' gets a win on the Oscar, it will mark the second time for the Disney animation studio since 'Frozen'.
