- Gone Girl
The most egregious snub here is Mr. Turner in period film. I'm sorry but do these people really not have enough respect for their own craft to just skip a film with some of the best production design of the year? Because that's the only thing that could explain it missing (and for Theory of Everything of all things, which used already existing locations? Seriously?) The production design branch of the Academy better rectify that error next week.
