The 94th Academy Awards Nominations

The Oscar nominees which got more or less than the Golden Globes.

The Academy Awards were announced, and there have been additions and subtractions. “The Mitchells vs. The Machines” has finally been added to the Best Animated Feature category, “The Tragedy of Macbeth” has more nominations than the Golden Globes with Best Actor (Denzel Washington), Best Cinematography, and Best Production Design, and “Parallel Mothers” has cut from the Best International Feature category, but is still nominated for Best Actress (Penelope Cruz). Even Cruz and Javier Bardem are the sixth married couple to be nominated in acting categories in the same year, while Jane Campion has become the first female director to be nominated twice.

Here are the list of nominations, and here are my personal choices of who should win. I haven’t seen any of the films in the Documentary Short Subject or Short Films categories, so I’m gonna leave them blank.
