1. Every Oscar season, critics discuss Academy snubs—and this year, several omissions are being hotly contested. Entertainment Weekly explores the debate, calling out the Academy for its lack of diversity. Selma, which recounts Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s historic march to Montgomery, was overlooked for Best Actor (David Oyelowo) and Best Director (Ava DuVernay). Another notable omission was The Lego Movie—a huge blockbuster in a year when the box office suffered.

2. Gone Girl, based on the bestselling novel by Gillian Flynn, was one of the most anticipated movie releases of 2014. And this month’s issue of Vanity Fair features the film’s leading lady, Rosamund Pike, who received a Best Actress nomination for her role as Amy Dunne. The former Bond girl and Pride and Prejudice beauty describes her character’s manipulative traits: “she smiles, but her eyes are always scanning you, assessing, seeing if you can play the game."

3. The Sundance Film Festival introduces fun, quirky, and avant-garde movies to a large audience of movie lovers every year. Variety magazine offers comprehensive festival coverage. Breakout favorites include Dope, a comedy that pokes fun at teenagers obsessed with ’90s hip-hop; Sleeping with Other People, a When Harry Met Sally–style romantic comedy starring Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie; and Mistress America, which brings together director Noah Baumbach and actress Greta Gerwig for their second indie flick after the 2012 hit, Frances Ha.

4. Rolling Stone is known as a music magazine, but it’s also one of the best publications for staying up-to-date on pop culture phenomenon. This month, the magazine reviews the Nina Simone documentary What Happened, Miss Simone?The film offers a close look at the artist’s life, including her rise to fame, involvement in the Civil Rights Movement, and struggle with depression. If you’re a music lover who enjoys movies like Searching for Sugar Man and Twenty Feet from Stardom, then What Happened is the perfect film to add to your queue.
