Well this is a pleasant surprise!

Glennhere with a look at the slate of nominees that the Online Film Critics Society sent our way today.You canthankme for a smidgen of the rather wonderful list since I am a member.The cynical person that I am assumed group think and the homogeny of the pack would give us the usual suspects,but theOFCSblessedly included somecurveballsand left of field choices that should make theAFIand other singularly Oscar-hunting awards bodies look foolish.Let's take a look.

BEST PICTURE

  • BOYHOOD
  • THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL
  • IDA
  • THELEGOMOVIE
  • MOMMY
  • NIGHTCRAWLER
  • SELMA
  • TWO DAYS,ONE NIGHT
  • WHIPLASH
  • UNDER THE SKIN

This being an online critics organisation,they are going to lean a little bit to the "cool"side of things.Having said that,only four of the organisation's nominations for Best Picture are likely going to get correlating Oscar nominees - they could beBoyhood,Grand Budapest,SelmaandWhiplash.The rest of the list is spectacularly diverse with three foreign language films,a semi-experimentalsci-fi,a creepy genre thriller,and the other meta-superhero flick from 2014.Speaking of which,the omission ofBirdmanis as surprising as it is delightful.I mean,I like the movie,and certainly much more thanWhiplash,but I have no qualms with it missing for the sake of XavierDolan'sMommy.Not one bit.
