11 ways Clint Eastwood's American Sniper embellished the truth
Clint Eastwood's military biopic American Sniper tore through cinemas in the red states last week to break January box-office records, making military supporters fire their guns in the air in celebration. However, questions remain over the movie's accuracy, following accusations that the movie's subject, Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, was a fantasist (he claimed he shot and killed two carjackers and that police covered it up, and that he picked off looters during Hurricane Katrina; neither incidents were ever confirmed).

Opinion piece: Why the Academy are racist for snubbing Selma
Guests of the Academy - overwhelmingly white, overwhelmingly male - took their seats at the opulent Dolby Theater in California to witness the announcement of the nominations for the 77th Oscars.

Top 20 scenes of 2014: 10-1
Here it is, the culmination of an entire year of sitting in front of a screen to watch movies and then sitting in front of a smaller screen to then write about those movies. These 10 scenes are the best that 2014 had to offer, although obviously that's just my opinion, but even more obviously it's my blog, so if you don't like it you can go and read WhatCulture or something you philistine.
