The 2014 Oscar nominations were announced this morning and the major disappointment for lesbian viewers is that neither Léa Seydoux nor Adèle Exarchopoulos were nominated for their roles in “Blue Is the Warmest Color.” It’s not surprising; neither of them were nominated for a Golden Globe, either, and those awards are firmly European. Maybe that NC-17 rating really did kill its chances like so many critics predicted. The film itself was not eligible for Best Foreign Film because it wasn’t released in its native France until after the Academy’s deadline. But we were holding out a little hope for Seydoux and Exarchopoulos. Alas!
