The Oscars 2015

Oscars of 2015I’m basically doing my homework the night before it’s due…

I am very behind with all of this nonsense as the nominees were released on January 15th… and The Oscars are tomorrow. But just in case, like me, these things slip under your radar, I thought I should update you on who is in the running.

Before we begin: Just in case you’re as inept with modern culture as I, here is a quick differentiation between the entertainment award ceremonies:

Academy Award (rebranded as The Oscars in 2013) – Award in the Film Industry
Golden Globe Award – Award in Motion Picture and Televison
Emmy Award – Award in Televison
Grammy Award – Award in Music
Tony Award – Award in Theatre

Right! So now we are clued up on the ceremonies, here are the nominees:
