Only CBMs indicated:

The Lone Ranger - 2

Iron Man 3 - 1
TheManFromMars - 1/16/2014, 6:05 AM
I'm in the minority that liked The Lone Ranger, so I'm okay with this.
charlie2094 - 1/16/2014, 6:06 AM
Still need to see 12 Years a Slave!

Imagine this will play out more or less like the Golden Globes did, though it would be nice to see DiCaprio finally win an Oscar...

Glad Prisoners got a nod for cinematography, did a great job with that. Gravity probably has best VFX covered, though I think Hobbit deserves it more
TheManFromMars - 1/16/2014, 6:07 AM
Well, there's also the Hobbit, Star Trek, and Despicable Me but I don't personally consider them CBMs...
Minty - 1/16/2014, 6:09 AM
All Meryl Streep needs to do is appear in a movie and she automatically gets a nomination -.- Happy for Fassbender and especially McConaughey - boy has he turned his career around
bazinga85 - 1/16/2014, 6:11 AM
So many great movies!
marvel72 - 1/16/2014, 6:14 AM
hope gravity,american hustle,the wolf of wall street & iron man 3 all win something.
BrotherStarkofMABMindz - 1/16/2014, 6:16 AM
No Prisoners or Idris Elba, bullshit!
Custer28 - 1/16/2014, 6:22 AM
Christian Bale nominated again!
QuestiontheAnswer - 1/16/2014, 6:23 AM
12 Years A Slave will win most of them. Jared Leto deserves the Supporting Actor award.
wcwpoet - 1/16/2014, 6:24 AM
Sorry but Prisoners was awful though I'll give Gyllenhal his due. I'm glad 12 Years got love, I'm rooting hard for that. Though I freaking loved every minute of Gravity.
Custer28 - 1/16/2014, 6:24 AM
Iron man 3 doesn't have a Chance, Gravity Certainly will win Best Visual effects.
GreenLantern519 - 1/16/2014, 6:25 AM
I think Man of Steel should've been nominated for Visual Effects.
Custer28 - 1/16/2014, 6:26 AM
Gravity Will Win All The Technical Categories.
HellsHammer - 1/16/2014, 6:27 AM
Im3 for best visual effects? Lmao!
TheMexicanSuperman - 1/16/2014, 6:28 AM
Joaquin Phoenix isn't nominated? What kind of bs is that?
SuperCat - 1/16/2014, 6:29 AM
"The Lone Ranger" for Visual Effects?! Get the f@ck outta here!
SuperCat - 1/16/2014, 6:31 AM
Lol @ HellsHammer

Yeah, I had a feeling that nomination was coming.
McNyagano - 1/16/2014, 6:35 AM
I think MOS should have been nominated for VFX but Gravity will win anything in the technical department including best VFX.
MrNiklander - 1/16/2014, 6:36 AM
Jennifer Lawrence for Best Supporrting actress!?Come on really!?What about Jennifer Garner in Dallas Buyers Club she was great in that!!!Once more we get to see the overrated ass of Jennifer Lawrence.Besides that the nominee list is good but [frick] Jennifer Lawrence.

CaptainComicBook - 1/16/2014, 6:37 AM
What?! I thought Man of Steel was the greatest film ever created? It has to be. It won all the awards on this site!
MrNiklander - 1/16/2014, 6:37 AM
Guys dont worry about MOS not getting nominated think of the big picture we got two movies up for an award in the VFX department which are based on a COMICBOOKMOVIE
Spidey10 - 1/16/2014, 6:38 AM
Chiwetel Ejiofor easily the best actor Winner this year sorry Leo
MrNiklander - 1/16/2014, 6:38 AM
Iron Man 3 and The Lone Ranger that is
DefcoN - 1/16/2014, 6:38 AM
Good for IM3, but in that particular category, the award will go to Gravity, there's absolutely no doubt about it.
GodzillaKart - 1/16/2014, 6:41 AM
Gravity should win best visual effects....probably followed by the hobbit, even though the Hobbit sucked as a film.

I understand why IM3 was the only CBM to be nominated. When you read what went into the Air Force one rescue scene, it is truly amazing.

Thor was fine, but pretty standard by today's measures. MOS had some great moments, but was special effect overload where Snyder, true to form, went far beyond using special effects to further the story and had a full on nuclear explosion over the top cgi overload. It was exhausting to watch. I don't think that is anything the academy wants to encourage.
Magus - 1/16/2014, 6:41 AM
Man of Steel's effects weren't very good, there was just a lot of them. You always knew the moment something went CG and it all looked fake. It was great spectacle but still very visible FX work. Iron Man 3 covered their tracks better.

Gravity will win it for sure though. That shit had amazing effects.
Isra - 1/16/2014, 6:42 AM
Man of Steel is not in the list. I´m wondering why... (sarcasm).

Cheers!
fettastic - 1/16/2014, 6:44 AM
No Man of Steel? No me watchee.

Should have gotten nominated for:

Best original Score
Best Special Effects
Best Costumes
JohnnyRoss - 1/16/2014, 6:44 AM
@niklander

Jennifer Lawrence was amazing in American Hustle.

She should win the award.
MsDarkPhoenix - 1/16/2014, 6:44 AM
Jared Leto!!!! He was awesome!

Also, does anyone else think that Lupita from '12 years a slave' was better than Lawrence in 'American Hustle'? Not hating, Lawrence is a great actress but I believe Lupita was better than her. We'll see, she might get the Oscar even though she didn't win the Golden Globe.

And yes, Gravity will definitely get the visual effects.
SuperCat - 1/16/2014, 6:45 AM
How the f@ck does "The Lone Ranger" get nominated for effects and not MoS? I gotta go back and watch IM3 again and see these great visual effects I missed. But I refuse to ever watch that turd, "The Lone Ranger," again.
JohnnyRoss - 1/16/2014, 6:45 AM
The biggest disappointment for me is no Joaquin Phoenix.
MrNiklander - 1/16/2014, 6:47 AM
@JohnnyRoss she was solid but not amazing.I mean come on really!?
KidGoku - 1/16/2014, 6:48 AM
Gravity will win Best Visual Effects for sure and probably sound mixing/editing as well

12 Years a Slave is taking the big ones, Best Picture, Best Director, and tied with Wolf Of Wall Street for Best Actor. As much as I LOVED Chiewtel's performance, every single one of Leo's top quality performances were wrapped in one and he gave it his all for this film. However... Jennifer Lawrence DOES NOT NEED that Oscar for supporting. Give it to Lupita or Jennifer Garner. Fassbender and Leto are my supporting actor choices. Aaaaaand those are my 2 cents.

Also: WHERE IS JOAQUIN PHOENIX?!
TheRealRemyLebeau - 1/16/2014, 6:48 AM
Congrats to all the films. Good job to the visual team on iron man 3. No hate can't deny how realistic the cgi looked. Great nomination and won't be mad if gravity gets some awards. Love me some Sandra Bullock. ;)
fettastic - 1/16/2014, 6:49 AM
I understand the complaint that The Lone Ranger spent too much time being a wuss-bag, and it was definitely bloated, but overall I enjoyed the movie.

Of course my perception might be colored by the fact that my 3-year-old LOVES it and has watched it like 8 times in the last week.

That's been fun because I loved The Lone Ranger as a kid so I have enjoyed getting him into the old stuff too.
KidGoku - 1/16/2014, 6:50 AM
Lupita from 12 Years A Slave did better than Jennifer Lawrence
27ShowStopper - 1/16/2014, 6:52 AM
Man of Steel should have gotten a nod for Visual Effects and The Place Beyond The Pines was snubbed IMHO. Gosling's presence was felt throughout the whole movie (possible Best Actor) and the movie as a whole stays with me to this day (Best Picture).
KidGoku - 1/16/2014, 6:52 AM
There's no reason why Man of Steel is NOT.on there and Star Trek is...
