Who Really Deserves to Get Academy Awards in 2015?

Academy Awards 2015

We've shared a number of Kevin B. Lee's terrific video essays before (he's the head video essayist at Fandor's Keyframe), and regardless of your preference, there's always something interesting. If you don't remember who the nominees are, be sure to check out our post here.

It's a little strange in some ways that we compare movies that were not made to compete against each other, but at this point it's a tradition. The Academy crowns a winner in each category every year, and this year Kevin has taken a look at some of the major categories and what each of them brings to the table.

I think the commentator massively underestimates Marion Cotillard. It's far harder to play a subtle role believably than embrace an extreme character.
