How Well Do You Know This Year’s Oscar Nominees?
The 2017 Academy Award nominations were finally revealed and we can all be relieved that #OscarsSoWhite won’t be nearly as popular a hashtag this year. Six black actors were nominated this time around, which is a record for the Academy. As is typical, this year’s nominees are a mixture of familiar faces, like Meryl Streep who seems to get nominated every single year even though Donald Trump thinks she is overrated, and newcomers to the awards season.
While there were some pleasant surprises in the list of nominations, such as Ruth Negga’s nomination for Loving, there were also quite a few snubs. Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who won the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Nocturnal Animals failed to garner a nod, but his co-star, Michael Shannon managed to snag one in the same category. And even though it always seemed like a long shot, it is still pretty disappointing that Deadpool wasn’t able to land even a single nomination— not even for its top-notch makeup or its wisecracking, fourth wall-breaking script.
So if you think you’re some kind of Oscar guru, or a film buff, or even if you just somewhat pay attention to what’s going on in movies these days— test your knowledge and take the quiz. How well do you know this year’s nominees?
