The big shock? The inclusion of Netflix’s Bright. Over on AwardsWatch, Erik Anderson speculates this could mean that the Academy is warming up to Netflix. If that’s the case, it’s certainly good news for Mudbound.
Here’s a little bit of late Oscar news. Two days ago, the Academy announced the 7 semi-finalists for the Academy Award for Best Hair and Makeup.
And the semi-finalists are:
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (Did that come out this year? Wow.)
Foxcatcher (Don’t get me started on noses.)
The Grand Budapest Hotel
Guardians of the Galaxy (yay!)
Noah (uhmmm … yay?)
The Theory of Everything
Update your Oscar picks accordingly…
On December 14th, the Motion Picture Academy announced the 7 semi-finalists for this year’s Academy Award for Best Makeup and Hairstyling. Surprisingly, neither The Hobbit nor 12 Years A Slave made the cut.
Here’s what did:
Dallas Buyers Club
The Great Gatsby
Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
Jackass Presents Bad Grandpa
The Lone Ranger
That’s right, everyone — Bad Grandpa is one step closer to being immortalized as an Oscar nominee.
The final 3 nominees will be announced on January 16th.
