The complete list of 2015 Oscar Nominations is out today, but many celebrities, including Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston, are no where in the list. The nomination list for the 2015 Oscars is a complete surprise for some. The Martin Luther King Jr. biopic "Selma," which boasts of Hollywood biggies like Oprah Winfrey and Brad Pitt, received positive reviews from audience and critics alike but managed to gather only two nominations for the 87th annual Academy Awards on Thursday.

"Selma," the film by Ava DuVernay, got the nod for the Best Picture category, but the director was snubbed from the Best Director category nomination. "Perhaps being snubbed already by the Director's Guild, the Screen Actors Guild and the Producers Guild, past Sundance Best Director winner DuVernay should have expected today's Oscar door to stay shut to her," writes Dominic Patten in the article "Oscar Nomination Snubs: Ava DuVernay, 'The LEGO Movie', Jennifer Aniston & More" in Deadline. Similary, David Oyelowo, an actor from the same film, was also snubbed for the Best Actor category nomination.

Other actors who were completely snubbed at the 2015 Oscar Nomination category include Jennifer Aniston, Amy Adams and Angelina Jolie. According to E Online, Aniston said she will be "sleeping" when the nominations are announced. The actress told the website she will be "in bed with her beloved [Justin Theroux] and dogs" and is not "going to torture" herself. Aniston is nominated for Best Actress category at the Golden Globes, Critics' Choice Award and Screen Actors Guild awards but missed out on the Oscars' nomination.

Actress Amy Adams will also not be able to repeat her last year's success at the Oscars as she has not been able to get a nomination for Best Actress category for her part in "Big Eyes." Ironically, Adams recently won the Golden Globe award for Best Actress on Sunday.

Angelina Jolie, who made her directorial debut with "Unbroken" was also snubbed from the nominations completely. "Unbroken" got three technical nominations, namely Cinematography, Sound Mixing and Sound Editing. Jolie's film "Maleficent," however, was nominated for Best Costume design category.

"The LEGO Movie," which had voice-overs from major Hollywood celebrities, was also completely ignored at the Oscar nominations night. Other movies that were ignored are "Life Itself" the Roger Ebert document directed by Steve James and "Foxcatcher," which did not get any Best Picture nomination despite its actors and director getting nominated in various categories. "Interstellar" is yet another film that only got nominated in technical categories but failed to get nominated in Best Picture category. Meanwhile, take a look at the complete list of nominations here.
