Paramount believes Transformers is worthy of an Oscar. No, seriously. They do. Take a few seconds to catch your breath again from all that laughing.
With Oscar season just around the corner, many studios are submitting films for consideration for academy awards and Paramount has submitted Transformer for “Best Picture Of The Year” category.
Their audacity doesn’t end there, they are also campaigning for Michael Bay as “Best Director.” As a testament to the world we live in, the much derided film was one of the most successful films this year netting over $1 Billion worldwide.
Nominations for the Academy Awards will be announced Thursday, Jan. 15, 2015.
The 87th Academy Awards will be held on Feb. 22, 2015 at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles. Actor Neil Patrick Harris is scheduled to host the ceremony.
