'Inherent Vice' Nominated For Two Academy Awards

It's that time of year again. The nominations for the 87th annual Academy Awards have been announced, and mostly Inherent Vice was sorely neglected. The good news: Mark Bridges received a nomination for Best Costume Design and Paul Thomas Anderson was nominated for his groundbreaking Adapted Screenplay of the Thomas Pynchon novel.

We would've liked to have seen some of the stellar performances acknowledged, and/or Robert Elswit's career-best cinematography, but what are you gonna do. The awards will be handed out on Sunday, February 22nd, and we'll see if Vice can't pick up those two golden statues.

  1. Yeah... Brolin deserved a nod to me... Joaquin was great, but Bigfoot was a big surprise to me since I had no idea what to expect without reading the book and who knew how much screen time any of the characters might get

  2. I was just upset Katherine Waterston didn't get best supporting actress. She was so marvelous.

  3. Getting real tired of the Academy blatantly snubbing PTA (not to mention other ridiculously talented, underrated artists).

    1. To be totally honest, I had already kind of resigned myself to thinking that Vice wouldn't even be nominated for anything. Even the critics were ignoring it, so to see both a shout-out to the costumes and especially the screenplay...hell, I'll take it. :P

      Some other things to appreciate...Richard Linklater and Wes Anderson gettting their first directing nominations and Best Picture nominations (and better yet, deservedly so). Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu and Bennett Miller recognized for some pretty daring stuff. Nightcrawler getting original screenplay. Whiplash showing up all over the place. Ida and Mr. Turner in Cinematography. Not the most horrible Oscar list I've seen, really.

  6. Any idea why Amy Adams doesn't appear in the credits of this film? (not that I saw, at least). She also isn't on its imdb page and the film isn't on hers. What gives?
