Yup, it’s already that time of year again to race and check out all those films that have been nominated for an Academy Award. This year, there’s been a great source of films to check with eight movies being nominated. Yup, some are heavy, but that’s what the Oscars are all about, giving credit to those films that many people don’t really check out at their local multiplex.

Neil Patrick Harris will be hosting the Academy Awards 2015 this year, but producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron weren’t too quiet about who their first choice was. After seeing an eight percent increase at last years Oscars, Ellen Degeneres was their first choice and they begged for her to return a third time. She said no, and I think there was some ego since last year she received some very mixed reviews. I, for one, wasn’t too crazy about it as it is that one awards show that just seems to take itself way too seriously even when it’s supposedly not trying to.

Next on the producers list was Chris Rock and then Veep’s Julia Louise Dreyfuss but they also passed. Most people are wise to as it is a thankless job that can usually put a tarnish on many who just aren’t ready for it.

So here’s the full list below along with some fancy images for those that like their noms with fancy writing.
