Where's the love?!
Every year when the Oscar nominations are announced, there are some actors or actresses and films that don't get the love they deserve. This year proved no different when the nominees were announced yesterday morning
While we had out own list of snubs, some Hollywood stars have come forward and voiced their opinions that their movies deserved more love than they got from The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
Despite being nominated, both Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Jason Leigh came forward to express their shock and share their thoughts on their flicks not being being recognized in more categories!
Fassbender revealed in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that he felt the screenwriter of Steve Jobs, Aaron Sorkin, — who won the Golden Globes for Best Screenplay — deserved to be recognized. The X-Men actor said of his writer:
It's an honor just to be nominated!
Shortly after Thursday morning's announcement gave an interesting mix of first time actors and Academy veterans, stars released statements expressing their honor and gratitude!
A-listers like Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Jason Leigh were quick to thank the directors of their respective films, while Brie Larson admitted she was so overcome with joy after getting nominated she was "shaking!"
See what a few of the nominees had to say about being considered for the highest honor in film (below):
Could it be his BEST?!
Despite The Hateful Eight not winning the Golden Globe for Best Original Screenplay this year, Quentin Tarantino thinks VERY highly of the film — and actually believes that it could be his best screenplay yet.
While attending Sydney's premiere last night, Daily Mail Australia caught up with the writer/director and asked him about his thoughts on the story. The 52-year-old gushed:
"I think it's my best script. I actually can see in twenty years this being considered in my top four."
Tarantino went on to admit:
"I'm not the one to ask, especially with the film being so brand new and fresh for me."
While the 88th Academy Award nominations don't come out until tomorrow, the director's statements are pretty bold as he's already received Oscars for Best Original Screenplay for both Pulp Fiction as well as Django Unchained.

Well this would be interesting!
While the Quentin's latest film has received a lot of praise, the director is already thinking ahead to future possibilities for his western.
After last night's ceremony, the 52-year-old revealed to The Wrap that he's looking to adapt his most recent film for the stage. He explained:
As Django star Jamie Foxx might say, "Blame it on the a-a-a-a-a-alcohol!"
The director praised the composer on stage, detailing how special this win was because Morricone had "never won an award for any one individual movie at a U.S. awards show."
But as Twitter was quick to point out, Tarantino was totally wrong!
Thanks to some quick fact-checking, movie buffs called out the filmmaker to confirm that Morricone had, in fact, won a few awards over his career!
The composer won two Globes — one for The Mission in 1987 and one for The Legend of 1900 in 2000!
(Morricone also earned an honorary Oscar in 2007, but that was not for "one individual movie.")
Unsurprisingly, fans took the opportunity to correct Tarantino's mistake, writing:
