Hollywood just announced its 2014 Oscar nominations for 2013 movies, and we have to say that these are among the most disappointing Oscar nominees in years.
The vast majority of the nominees are boring, uninspiring, tasteless, elitist, senseless, or politically correct.
For example, in the Best Picture category, Oscar voters senselessly nominated sloppily made, mostly R-rated, and sometimes politically correct, adult dramas; often with disagreeable, unsympathetic characters.
They only nominated two really superb movies, Gravity and Captain Phillips. Nebraska had some uplifting moments, but its director foolishly refused to delete one obscenity from his movie to get a PG-13 rating instead of an R rating.
Also, only one of the Best Picture nominees, Gravity, appealed to families. Why couldn’t they nominate a couple animated family movies? Movieguide liked Frozen and Despicable Me 2 the most, but The Croods and Monsters University were also very good.
