Oscars 2014 Nominations

The Oscars are to proceed as per plan. Some of the movies that are the top brass at the heart-stopping show include: “Gravity”, “American Hustle” and “12 Years a Slave”. This triumphant trio is to be the main set of contenders at the awards ceremony. Everything virtually revolves around them. 

The conditions at the Oscars this season will be one of neck to neck competition. The hall is to be filled to the brim with thespians. And Hollywood is the dream factory behind all the hoopla. The wide range of topics upon which the movies are based provides something for everyone

Gravity and American Hustle snatched 10 nominations. And 12 Years a Slave grabbed 9. This was way more than the rest of the reel life examples. Some of the other nominees include Captain Phillips which is about African pirates and Dallas Buyers Club which deals with the HIV virus and the devastation it unleashes upon people. Her, Nebraska and Philomena were somewhere in the bunch of top contenders. 

The third one of these stars Dame Judi Dench. Then the Wolf of Wall Street deals with the same issues as Gordon Gekko once did in a similar movie where greed is his creed. Some other important names that showed up consisted of Saving Mr. Banks, Mary Poppins and Inside Llewyn Davis. The movie Lost at Sea starred Robert Redford. 

All in all, these are the very special people who take time to amuse and amaze us by their antics on the silver screen. Movies are a form of mass hypnosis and they allow us to forget our troubles and worries for a while. And that is a laudable thing for which we can’t thank them enough.  

Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs and actor Chris Hemsworth announced this year's Oscar nominations on Thursday, January 16th at 5:38 a.m. PT | 8:38 a.m. ET in the Academy's Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills, California. Watch the video of the nomination ceremony below:

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
