It's that time of the year when movie studios recommend what they feel are their Oscar contenders to the Academy.
Well, Paramount seems to feel strongly about Transformers: Age Of Extinction, which made over a billion dollars at the box office.
Actually, Paramount feels so strongly about the movie that they have recommended Transformers: Age Of Extinction to be nominated in just about every Oscar category -- including Best Picture Of The Year and Best Director for Michael Bay.
I know the movie has been taking flak online, but as I have only recently seen the movie, I really liked it and felt it might have been the best Transformers movie to date (at least the second best following the first). Of course, I knew going in that the Dinobots weren't prominently featured, so my expectations regarding that really weren't high.
While I felt the movie wasn't perfect - too long and some of the supporting cast weren't up to par - I liked the story, action and felt Mark Wahlberg did a good job and fit right in within the Transformers universe.
