Ep. 85.5 - Oscar Be Snubbin'

Our first .5 episode of 2015 is reactions to the 87th Annual Academy Awards nominations. There were some unforgivable snubs this year and Top 5 Film felt it necessary to go on the record over the Academy's weak nomination class from 2014; a year with an outrageous number of exceptional films.
