If the worst day of your life consisted of accidentally killing your girlfriend with an axe, chain-sawing your own arm off, and watching in horror as your closest friends were devoured by a zombified Nazi battalion, you’d have to assume that things couldn’t get much worse. In Martin’s case, that was only the beginning. – IMDb

Let me preface this list by saying that The Academy got a lot right with their nominations this year and I understand how tough it was because this was a particularly good year in film with some amazing movies and even more amazing performances being delivered to theaters in 2013. However that does not mean that The Academy is immune from criticism or that this humble blogger does not think he knows better than people who work in the industry when it comes to picking who should be in the running to get a shiny gold naked man statue. So with my healthy ego made known let’s get down to my picks for Biggest Oscar Nomination Snubs of 2014!

This real life telekinetic freak out as part of the promotion of the CARRIE remake is really cool.
I just hope one day I am in a coffee shop minding my own business when Hollywood decides to get it’s prank on.

Now I admit to getting sucked into the hype over SHARKNADO when it was first announced just based off the complete absurdity of the idea and I watched the movie when it premiered on Syfy but the movie was incredibly bad even by the Syfy channel original monster movie standards. Plus no one actually watched the movie despite SHARKNADO mania running wild all over Twitter.
So while it was bad enough that Syfy has aired the movie every week since it premiered but now they plan on having a limited run in actual movie theaters.
Regal Cinemas will host midnight shows of Sharknado on August 2 at roughly 200 theaters across the country, including New York City’s Regal Union Square Stadium 14 and L.A.’s Regal L.A. Live Stadium 14.
