    ^^ The day after the Oscars, a local TV station posted on their FB page the question "was American Sniper robbed of an Oscar?". Immediately, people started responding that it should have won, the Academy doesn't know what they're doing, Chris Kyle was an American hero and the movie deserved to win because it's made millions of dollars, etc. If Oscars were given out for popularity and $$ made, by that logic, The Hangover should have swept the Oscars when it came out, right?

    Worse - it would have been "Hunger Games, Mocking Jay", followed by "Guardians of the Galaxy", with "Lego Movie" rounding out the top picture nominees.

    Agree! I'm actually glad that American Sniper didn't win big (for many reasons). I thought it would win solely due to the subject matter. Glad I was wrong!

    Hey, The Lego Movie was pretty epic.
