Mad Max: Fury Road
This post-apocalyptic sc-fi adventure starring Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy should be your top priority. It earned two nominations: One for Best Motion Picture, Drama and one for Best Director for George Miller. It’s about time you see what all the fuss is about.
This artificial intelligence sci-fi flick starring Oscar Isaac and Domnhall Gleeson as programmers will thrill—and perhaps scare—you, thanks to the flawless portrayal of a fully A.I. woman by Alicia Vikander. No wonder she scored a nod for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture.
Al Pacino earned a nod for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture in a Musical or Comedy for his titular role in this film, which co-stars Jennifer Garner, Annette Bening, and Bobby Cannavale. In it, Pacino plays an aging rock star who discovers his whole career could have been changed by receiving a letter telling him to stick to his vision by John Lennon.
This brilliant movie teaches kids about emotions through the story of Riley, an 11-year-old girl who is uprooted from her midwestern home when her family moves to San Francisco. Her emotions, a combination of joy, sadness, fear, disgust, and anger, help her through this difficult time, as well as her lovable imaginary friend, Bing Bong. Look for the recognizable voices, like Amy Poehler, Mindy Kaling, Bill Hader, and more. The movie earned a nomination for Best Motion Picture – Animated.
