    By The Numbers: The 2014 Oscar Nominations

    You might have thought we were done with coverage of today's Oscar announcements, but you were wrong (although, actually, this should be for it the moment after this one). You've seen the nominations themselves, and you've read our piece about the surprises and snubs, but what you might be missing o...

    2014 Oscar Nominations: The Biggest Shocks, Snubs & Surprises

    Well, the Oscar nominations are in and Twitter has exploded with the usual flurry of WTF?s, OMG!s and TOLDJA!s (perhaps we follow the wrong people).

    After almost six months of debate, backbiting, speculation and guesswork (and yeah, it is close to six months—awards season got underway officially with the debut of "Gravity" in Venice in August, though some could trace it back even earlier to the arrival of "Blue Jasmine in the summer), we're almo...

    In the fury of awards season, great films that arrived with strong buzz and critical plaudits can get lost if they arrived earlier in the year.
