I haven't even heard of half of these movies. I never understand the Oscars. How can these movies be up for awards when I don't know anyone who has seen or even wants to see any of the movies? I'm not saying that box office numbers should drive awards but it should play some role. If nobody wants to watch these movies, how can they be that good?
I actually saw Mad Max (the only one on the list I saw) and it was probably the worst movie I saw all year. It was just a long car chase with little to no plot and no real dialogue.

I havent seen any of these movies, however I heard the Martian is excellent.

I believe Leo should win an oscar. All the movies I've seen with him in it were excellent. Inception, Titanic, Wolf of Wall Street...all excellent.

Very true!! I think Furious 7 should definitely be a nominee!
