In light of yesterday’s Oscar nominations announcement, The Dartmouth’s resident awards experts, executive editor Michael Riordan ’15 and Mirror editor Erin Landau ’15, ruminated long and hard on who will win, who will be snubbed and who should claim a naked statuette on March 2. It’s been a pretty good year for movies, but as usual, all the great ones were released in the past three months. With instant classics such as “Diana,” “Machete Kills” and “A Madea Christmas,” we think it’s safe to say that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences had no shortage of choices. In a stunning twist, “American Hustle,” “Gravity” and “12 Years a Slave” led the nominations, sweeping the major categories. In case you need helping winning your fraternity Oscar pool or decorating thematically for your awards party, here are our picks for the big show:

The Supreme Court's Monday ruling on affirmative action in Fisher v. Texas may lead to an increased number of law suits against universities, The Chronicle of Higher Education reported. The ruling said that the lower courts should have placed stricter scrutiny on the University of Texas at Austin's race-conscious admissions policy. Various legal scholars, academics and activists have predicted that the decision whose opinions spanned a combined total of 41 pages will lead to the invalidation of previously unchallenged admissions policies. Some universities have already begun to explore the possibilities and effects of adopting race-neutral policies, such as Texas's practice of accepting the top ten percent of high school seniors statewide.
