  1. In my ideal world, The Raid 2 would have been nominated for best foreign film đŸ˜‰

  2. I’m happy to see “Everything Is Awesome ” up for Best Song.

  3. […] for the nominations and then later for the awards themselves. (Maybe I’ll also do what I did last year and post my ideal-world Oscar nominations […]
