In the best actress category, Marion Cotillard was rewarded with a surprise nomination for her role in Two Days, One Night. The much buzzed about Jennifer Aniston, for her role in the indie film Cake, was left out of the category. Amy Adams was also skipped over for her performance in Big Eyes.
David Oyelowo’s performance as Dr. Martin Luther King in Selma was overlooked this morning in the Best Actor category, marking the first time since 2000 that no people of color were nominated in any acting categories. Not good Academy.
