1. Academy Announces Its 47 Nominees For Best Picture, Along With One Or Two That Have An Actual Chance At Winning

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences this morning announced its exhaustive list of movies that have just next to zero percent chance of winning an Oscar for Best Picture. Among the many movies that will never in a million years take home the statuette despite technically being in the running are American Sniper, Whiplash and something that I think is called The Theory of Imitation Games. Genuine contenders Birdman, Boyhood and The Grand Budapest Hotel are obviously also nominated.
