The Oscar nominations are out, so it's time to pick up the pieces after your office's losing Powerball pool and get the company ballots going. There aren't many surprises on this list (especially after hundreds of other lesser awards shows honored mostly the same things), except perhaps the snubbing of Carol for Best Picture.
Everyone's favorite comedy, The Martian, scored a nomination for Best Picture. After having been snubbed for both Anchorman and Anchorman 2, Adam McKay got a nomination for the brilliant, fast-paced The Big Short. And, as you'll likely keep hearing until the winners are announced February 28th, Leonardo DiCaprio is nominated for Best Actor. His long-overdue win might finally be coming thanks to his chemistry with his co-star, a bear.
