Oscars nominations are out and I am already all over it

Oscar noms were announced this morning and so it’s basically my Christmas. I love this Oscars and have already started planning my family’s Oscar party. It will be quite the event, know this.

The hardest part is picking a favorite when you are dealing with this many amazing films but I have to so here goes. I marked my votes in italic. They *might change because I haven’t seen everything yet but, for the most part, I’m good. I haven’t picked all of them, but will once I see Roma and The Favourite.

Who are you rooting for? Who was missed? Thoughts?
