Oscar Nominations Announced

If you choose to be shocked Adam Sandler didn't get nominated, than be shocked, because he didn't

The full list of Oscar Nominations has been announced and for the most part it feels as if they did a proper job. There will always be critics and film fans alike that seem to want to use the word “snub” everytime an award show comes around. I like when the nominations are announced because it gives you just over a month to watch the movies and performances that are receiving some attention. So let’s start with the most important awards…

Achievement in sound editing nominees:
FORD V FERRARI

JOKER

1917

ONCE UPON A TIME…IN HOLLYWOOD

STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER
