Ranking Oscar’s 2015 Nominees

We’re just shy of a week away from the 87th annual Academy Awards, hosted by charmer of millions Neil Patrick Harris. Right up until the day before the big event, NPH lookalike Eric Henderson and myself are dispassionately diagnosing one category a day (you can read our predictions here). This year, 60 films received nominations across 24 categories, and with the exception of Glen Campbell…I’ll Be Me, I’ve seen them all. And in what’s become an annual tradition, I’ve ranked the films, from the most euphoric to the most pungent.
