Time for more announcements!

Award season is here which means we get to find out what 2015 movies will be nominated!

While the Golden Globe nominations have already come in, as well as the SAG Awards, and the People's Choice Awards have already passed, it's time for some bigger award shows!

The list is mostly what you'd expect, but there were a couple major surprises regarding snubs as neither Jennifer Lawrence or Tom Hanks were nominated. In fact, David O. Russell's Joy wasn't nominated at all!

Another arguable snub was British actress Charlotte Rampling who didn't receive a nomination for her romantic drama 45 Years despite there being buzz that she could land an Oscar nod this year!

Perhaps one of the most puzzling omissions though was Spectre which didn't receive a SINGLE nomination! The reason this is a bit of a shock is the previous Bond film, Skyfall, not only won Outstanding British Film in 2013, but it was nominated for eight total awards!

Ch-ch-check out the full list of nominees (below) and let us know who you think was snubbed!

The nominees for the Critics' Choice Awards were just announce and we're pretty happy with the results!

George Miller and Tom Hardy's Mad Max: Fury Road ended up being the biggest winner as it leads the list with 13 nominations which include Best Picture, Best Actress for Charlize Theron and Best Director for Miller.

After taking the Online Film Critics Society Awards by storm this weekend, the Oscars buzz for the flick is as loud as a flamethrowing guitar!

But don't worry, if you are a fan of Carol, The Martian, or The Revenant, then you'll be pretty pleased as each of those flicks nabbed nine nominations!
