Well, those are some interesting nominees in the minor categories xD with Stoker (7) getting a lot in single categories, but never managed to crack my Top20 and was shut out in “the main categories” of Director, Screenplay and Film… while other films managed to nab a Best Film with no other nods- after all of that happened, I went “Oh, so that’s how it happens in awards” xD

You can be a detailed breakdown by number of nominations or by films.

Surprises? Upsets? Some missing? Let me know in the comments!

I hope you get to watch some of the ones you haven’t yet!
