One of the "snubs" people are talking about this year is the lack of a nomination for Emily Blunt for her role in Into the Woods. She was nominated for a Golden Globe for her role as the Baker's Wife in the film. Into the Woods also failed to receive a nomination for Best Picture.

Big Hero 6
is up against The Boxtrolls, Song of the Sea, How to Train Your Dragon 2, and The Tale of Princess Kaguya in the Animated Film category.

This year's Academy Awards ceremony will air Sunday, February 22 at 7 p.m. ET on ABC.
