The nominees were announced this morning for the 88th Academy Awards! While I am not a big Academy Awards guy, I am very excited Star Wars get some nods and that Sylvester Stallone was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Creed. This is the first time since 1977 that he has been nominated! That was of course for Rocky.

Adrian would be proud.
