The 86th Annual Academy Awards nominations were announced Thursday morning, and it was a fairly brief and unsurprising affair. The end results looked like the majority of 2013's 'Best Of Movie' lists, with the same handful of titles being mentioned over and over again. But there were a few loopy choices thrown into the mix that made us cock our head. Who thought Disney's mega-bomb The Lone Ranger or the outsider punk rock aesthetic of Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa would capture the attention of Oscar's antiquated ballot pushers? Those weren't the only surprising inclusions. Let's look at the 9 Movies We Can't Believe Were Just Nominated for an Oscar...
