Community leaders and local activists march down UA Mall to remember life and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. BY ELIZABETH EATON The Daily Wildcat



ARTS & LIFE - 12


Children, students, teachers and people from across Tucson gathered on the UA Mall on Monday to march in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day and promote current social justice issues. Participants met at 8:30 a.m. for a free breakfast and a Zumba warm-up led by members of Alpha Kappa Alpha, the first black sorority on campus. “We are out here today for MLK, passing out breakfast, hitting one of our health initiatives,” said Alexyz Liggins, a journalism and communications junior and member of Alpha Kappa Alpha. The dance was followed by several speakers, including Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild and Congressman Raul Grijalva, who discussed the importance of King’s dream. The crowd also participated in a rendition of “Lift Every Voice and Sing” before marching to Reid Park, where the festivities continued with food and guest speakers. This marks the 28th year the Tucson Martin Luther King Jr. Committee has put together an event to celebrate King’s life. Since Clarence Boykins, president of the Tucson-Southern Arizona Black Chamber of Commerce, recently underwent surgery, Ron Burton, a

A newly proposed center at the UA downtown campus will allow students and community members to collaborate with businesses, nonprofits and the city government. The Center for Geospatial Innovation, Science and Technology will be a space where students can work on projects that can be used to address the city’s needs, network with potential employers and find internships, said Chris Lukinbeal, director of the Geographic Information Systems Technology masters and certificate programs. The center, which will be located on the second floor of the Roy Place building on the corner of Stone Avenue and Pennington Street, will be dedicated to research and providing services to

the community. The projects will be related to the GIST field, which includes computer mapping and location-based technology, Lukinbeal said. “It was really important for us to be seen as part of that [geospatial] community,” Lukinbeal said, “rather than being situated just on main campus.” The proposal calls for a collaboration between academic units, such as the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences and the Institute of the Environment, to take care of start-up costs, Lukinbeal added. The projects conducted at the center will provide funding once they get started. The center is still awaiting approval from the Provost’s Office and there’s no set opening date, Lukinbeal said. The approval process is usually a smooth one,


Few undergraduates can say they spent their summer conducting research at Stanford with Ph.D.-level biomedical engineers. Only one can say she won a $5,000 scholarship when she got back. Sandra Gonzalez, a biomedical engineering senior, was awarded the first annual $5,000 Anna Salazar Memorial Engineering Scholarship from SynCardia Systems, a local artificial heart company. The namesake of the scholarship, Anna Salazar, was a senior quality engineer at SynCardia when she died suddenly, according to Don Isaacs, vice president of communications for SynCardia. The company started the scholarship to support women who go into the field of engineering, Isaacs said. “It’s really to recognize people like Sandra Gonzalez,” Isaacs said. “We want to help to continue the development of people who make contributions to our society.” Gonzalez said she felt honored to receive the award from SynCardia. Gonzalez was raised by a single mother in Phoenix, from whom she receives no financial assistance. Gonzalez used to work to support herself, in addition to the school work and research she

Kababeque suffers minor blaze BY ETHAN MCSWEENEY


This sort of spying that happens mostly in fiction... may be captivating but spying that could potentially happen to us instantly becomes less glamorous. OPINIONS—4

The Daily Wildcat A fire broke out in the kitchen of Kababeque Indian Grill on University Boulevard late Sunday night. The fire started at approximately 9:45 p.m. in the restaurant, which has recently been undergoing r e m o d e l i n g . Construction workers were inside the

restaurant when the fire broke out. “Something was left on … one of the stoves,” said Jack Horton, one of the construction workers. Horton and two workers were part of a night construction crew that had begun renovation work inside the restaurant at around 9 p.m. Horton said that they were putting up plastic inside when the fire

broke out toward the back of the restaurant, in the kitchen area. “We tried to put it out with the fire extinguishers,” Horton said. “We thought we had it out but the fire started back up again and we had to call the police department because it got so smoky in there we couldn’t see anything.” Horton said none of the construction workers were injured

by the fire. Eat-a-Pita, the restaurant next door to Kababeque, was forced to evacuate after smoke began filling up the establishment, said Shelby Gormsen, an employee at Eat-a-Pita. “At 9:50 p.m. [the construction workers] came and told us that there was a fire next door,” Gormsen said, “and that’s when all the

Water pipelines to be replaced across Tucson BY stephanie casanova The Daily Wildcat

Tucson Water will be replacing water pipelines near the UA beginning in January or early February, with construction lasting four to six weeks. The company will be replacing water pipelines that bring water from reservoirs to central Tucson, and is

currently working on pipelines in the Star Pass Boulevard and Greasewood Road area on the west side of Tucson, said Fernando Molina, Tucson Water public information officer. Tucson Water will also be replacing fiber optic acoustic monitoring equipment under Greasewood Road from Star Pass Boulevard to Ironwood Hills Road and under Third Avenue from 26th Street to


Lester Street, according to a press release from Tucson Water. Third Avenue is located just west of Euclid Avenue and the work being done just north of Speedway Boulevard is expected to affect parking and traffic, Molina said. The crews working on the pipelines will move from one section to another, only affecting one area at a time as they move along the water pipeline. Molina

advised students who commute to campus and the surrounding community to be aware that there will be work in progress. “Be aware of … heavy equipment that might be used in the process,” Molina said. “Just be aware of people that are working in the areas.” — Follow Stephanie Casanova @_scasanova_

How many people do that?” said Marty Pagel, an associate professor of biomedical engineering and the head of CAMEL. Pagel is also Gonzalez’s mentor in the Minority Access to Research Careers program, and wrote a letter nominating her for the Anna Salazar Memorial Engineering Scholarship. Despite her work in multiple areas, Gonzalez expressed interest is in cardiovascular research. She

first became interested in the area the summer after her freshman year, when she participated in a lab that worked on cardiovascular disease. “[The program] showed me how much there is a need for [cardiovascular research],” Gonzalez said. “There are not a lot of people who do research in that area.” She said her interest in cardiovascular research is why she applied for the scholarship.

former administrator for Tucson, took the reins this year. Burton said he believes that recognizing Martin Luther King Jr. Day is still as important as ever. “We’re doing this to make people remember that this man had a dream,” Burton said. “A lot of people are saying now, ‘Why would you want to do this? You have a black president. … But it’s not all that; it’s about the things he had in his dream; it’s about these things that are going to keep us moving forward. … If you don’t have a dream, then you don’t survive. So we’re taking his dream and making it survive.” Burton said Arizona does not have a great track record with Martin Luther King Jr. Day, as it was the 49th state to recognize the day as an official holiday. The festivities on Monday were in part an attempt to atone for the state’s shortcomings in the past and educate the youth, according to Burton. “This is for the young people. … It’s a chance, an opportunity for us to get together and talk about the issues and the things that we have in the world today,” Burton said. “These young people don’t know about the history of Tucson; they don’t know about how long it took us to march, to get the executive order [to make the date an official holiday].” Despite all of King’s work and how far America has progressed, there are still inequalities that needs to be addressed, said Donna Baker X, a UA alumna and marcher for Jobs with Justice, a worker’s rights organization. “There’s still discrimination against people of color,” Baker X said. “So that’s why we’re talking about Jobs with Justice. You know, unemployment is higher for black people than it is for any other race.” Jobs with Justice had a large turnout at the march. Several of the participants held signs that read “Jobs not War” and “Workers Rights for All.” One marcher, CJ Jones, said he supported the organization because “everyone should have a job and good pay.” Other organizations that support social justice participated in the event as well. Margo Newhouse, who represents Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, also attended. “[WILPF] is an organization that is almost 100 years old, and is always working for current issues of peace and justice,” she said. “All the issues that I believe in are all things that Martin Luther King Jr. certainly stood for. I’m here to support all the groups that are fighting for justice. We’ve a long way to go.”

she was there, she saw the medical devices the company had developed. “At some point in life I would like to be able to work with devices like that,” Gonzalez said. “Maybe more diagnostic devices more tailored to cardiovascular diseases, something where you could prick your finger and it would show you your risk level, like glucose sensors.” Gonzalez said she plans to graduate this May and begin graduate school in the fall.

Looking further into the future, Gonzalez said she is still unsure of whether she wants to enter academia or industry when she receives her Ph.D. “At this moment I don’t know that yet,” Gonzalez said, “but I’m hoping the Ph.D. will guide me.”

NSA still spying incognito BY David W. Mariotte The Daily Wildcat


rowing up with James Bond and Chuck Bartowski, I thought spying was pretty cool. The way I still like to think of it involves driving Aston Martins in exotic locales with beautiful women, on the way to fight a bad guy who lives in a volcano. This sort of spying that happens mostly in works of fiction — in large part because I hear volcano lairs aren’t practical — may be captivating, but spying that could potentially happen to us instantly becomes less glamorous. A big issue in the U.S. has been the National Security Agency’s surveillance of citizens’ phone and Internet use. President Barack Obama made a speech on Friday to address changes being made to intelligencegathering practices. If Obama really wants to make a difference, give citizens the assurance that their civil liberties will not be violated and stop making people feel like criminals, he needs to step up his game and take more of his advisory panel’s recommendations. One of the most important advisements Obama mentioned instituting was requiring a court decision before NSA analysts are allowed to search metadata from telephones. This is a positive step because it limits investigation of call records to only those calls that the legal system recognizes as exhibiting probable cause. Even in what should be an improvement to our privacy, there is a loophole. The court system will get involved during some point of the phone record searching process; however, if there’s an emergency, its part can be delayed until after the search has been conducted. The definition of what constitutes an emergency was vague. This is basically how most of the recommendations were addressed, if they were addressed at all. Problems would be mentioned, with a hint of change implied, but most of the previously existing, troublesome infrastructure was kept intact. Another example of this can be seen in the handling of National Security Letters, a form of subpoena that the FBI uses that requires the recipient — usually a business — to turn over financial records or communication data while preventing recipients from talking about the investigation. It was recommended that, before being distributed, NSLs must first receive a judge’s approval, much like phone records searches. Instead of this provision passing, the NSLs only received a reduction in the gag order that is included. Now, the only difference is that there will be a point when recipients can talk about what the letter entailed. Individual citizens are not the only ones reeling from a lack of trust and an increased awareness of spying. Technology businesses in particular have not been pleased with the NSA’s collection of “zero day” flaws — the name given to any previously undiscovered backdoor into a computer system. These defects can be used to get into programs and mount an attack. Just as Superman would prefer no villain ever get a complete list of his weaknesses, especially ones he does not even know about, computer companies do not want their weaknesses to be exploited. Currently the NSA is outbidding companies for the rights to “zero days.” If they continue to delay the information, companies will be vulnerable to government cyberattacks. At no point did Obama address the collection of “zero days,” despite being recommended on the action list for much less frequent use as a show of good faith, both to the tech companies and those who could potentially be spied on. Ultimately, the announced decisions do not amount to much change. A balance between privacy and security may be achieved, but nothing is so dramatically different as to give us a complete sense of our trust back. There are ways to have both privacy and security. The panel of advisers came up with some of these ways, which protect our Fourth Amendment rights against unreasonable search and seizures, while also allowing the government reasonable access to potentially dangerous materials. If anything’s really going to change, Obama needs to follow their advice. — David W. Mariotte is a journalism sophomore. Follow him @DW_DavidWallace

Net neutrality keeps Web monopoly from passing go BY Eric Klump The Daily Wildcat


an. 14 was scary for anyone who uses the Internet, which in this day and age is all of us. The events of this day ripped through the Internet like shots fired. Now, many are huddled and awaiting what will come next: a battle to maintain what the Internet is or massive changes to its identity. On Jan. 14, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit gutted the Federal Communications Commission’s open Internet rules in the decision of FCC v. Verizon. This move threatened the hope of net neutrality, which prevents Internet service providers from controlling people’s access to websites. The ruling is the latest in a nearly decade-long battle between the FCC and organizations pushing for an open Internet, along with Internet service providers that want more control over the data traveling through their systems. In 2008, Comcast was punished by the FCC for slowing traffic of customers using peer-to-peer networking applications like uTorrent. Comcast appealed the FCC’s attempt at forcing net neutrality, and won a case before the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. The court determined that the FCC did not have the power to make ISPs comply with net neutrality, prompting the FCC to adopt the open Internet rules in 2010, which

Your Views Online Comments In response to “Judicial activism amiss in Utah case” (by Kasey Shores, Jan. 15) I’m getting tired of samesex marriage opponents’ new argument, which seems to be everywhere these days and essentially runs like this: “Whether you believe marriage should include gay couples or not, it should be up to the people of the states.” For one thing, the argument is disingenuous from the very first clause. Only if you believed that there is no constitutional protection for queer folks, only if you wholly rejected the civil-rights arguments at stake — only then could you ever argue that marriage equality is

a law that has to justify itself by winning a majority of support. It’s an argument that only an opponent of marriage equality could ever make. Same-sex marriage opponents, Ms. Shores included, should stop trying to skirt the argument with this talk of “the will of the people” and instead start at the beginning, by explaining why they think that so-called “traditional” marriage isn’t unconstitutional sex discrimination that the court is obligated to overturn. Anything less demonstrates a lack of understanding about the role of our judicial system and the balance of minority and majority rights in a constitutional republic. — Jacquelyn Oesterblad (Jacquelyn is a former columnist with the Daily Wildcat)

The majority do not have the right to rule with no regard to the Constitution. The case of gay marriage is being tested in the courts under the equal protection clause, it may be tested under many other clauses also. Calling a court “activist” is nothing more than name calling. There was a time where mixed race marriages were not legal and were held to be that way under the majority of the states. Supreme court “activism” ended that. The way this will eventually go is that under the equal protection clause all marriages will be recognized in all states. Then a couple will try to get married in a state with laws on the books where same sex couples cannot be married. They will go to court and the state will lose as it has to recognize marriages as valid in another state with those folks who married there and are living in their state. — Mike C

The law school is right across the street. Your failure to talk to even one law professor about judicial activism is exceptionally lazy journalism.… Worse: there isn’t even a good definition of judicial activism in this article. Instead, you just say that, “He has decided to change a law based on his individual interpretation of the constitution.” Finally, the government’s decisions should NOT necessarily revolve around the opinion of the people it serves. Were that the case, we would not have Brown v. Board of Education, Lawrence v. Texas, or any number of correct constitutional decisions that invalidated laws that were passed by the people or their representatives. — twentythirtyone

Three strikes

Nine people were cited and released for underage drinking in Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall on Tuesday at around 10:19 p.m. University of Arizona Police Department officers were doing rounds with the resident assistant when they found 20 people in a room drinking alcohol. The college-age individuals, some UA students and some friends of students, were tested for the presence of alcohol in their systems. Three assisting officers met with the underage drinkers to test and talk to them individually. A non-UA affiliated man showed six signs of being under the influence and told the officer he had drunk three Natural Light beers. A UA student took a breath test showing she had drunk alcohol. The student said she had taken three vodka shots but didn’t know who provided the vodka. Nine of the 20 people were cited and released for underage drinking.

A UAPD officer responded to the Highland Quad, a small field just north of Highland Commons, after a report about a stolen fighting stick on Tuesday at 8:40 p.m. A member of the Society for Creative Anachronism reported that a man came up to watch the club’s fighting, then grabbed a wooden sword and ran off with it. The member said the man was white and appeared to be 17 to 25 years old and about 6 feet tall. SCA practices fighting Tuesday evenings and the member said they leave their fighting sticks on the southwest end of the Highland Quad. The member said the man ran west out of the circle and north on Santa Rita Avenue. The stick was 36 inches long, covered in white tape with a rubber hilt and valued at about $100. The member was given a victims’ rights form. The officers were unable to find the suspect or the sword.

UA’s ranking breaks records BY EVAN ROSENFELD

The Daily Wildcat Arizona men’s basketball picked up one school record on Monday and is one game away from tying another. After a dominating 91-68 victory over rival ASU, the No. 1 Wildcats were on top of the AP Top 25 for the seventh week in a row, a school record. The 2002-03 Wildcats were No. 1 for six weeks to open the season and were top-ranked for 13 weeks overall. Arizona has already made history by becoming the school’s first team to begin a season 17-0. This week the UA (now 18-0, 5-0 Pac-12) received 61 of 65 potential first place votes, with No. 2 Syracuse picking up the rest. The Wildcats are one win away from tying Basketball Hall-ofFamer and former head coach Lute Olson’s school-winning streak of 19 in 1992-93, which he duplicated in 1997-98. Junior guards Nick Johnson and T.J. McConnell are two big reasons for the Wildcats’ success this season. Johnson averages a teamleading 16.3 points per game and shoots 81.9 percent from the free throw line. He is the team’s vocal leader on the court, and one of the best defensive players in the nation. Johnson emphasized that the team cannot begin to become complacent, despite its undefeated record, and that in the locker room, the focus is strictly on the next game. “We’re just trying to take this one game at a time; this is our dream,” Johnson said. “We are living our dreams right now, being the No. 1 team in the country. [We] know we have a target on our back every single game, but we take that as a challenge and we know we are going to get everybody’s best shot, so we just have to prepare in practice and keep things going.” In the program’s history, the Wildcats have been ranked No. 1 for a total of 36 weeks. That is second in Pac-12 history behind UCLA and ninth in the country since 1949. McConnell, a transfer from Duquesne who was forced to

Over the past three games, he is 14-for-23 from the field and 7-for12 from beyond the 3-point line. On the season, he is shooting with 47.2 percent accuracy from the field and averages 7.4 points and 6.2 assists per game. While McConnell has been putting up respectable numbers, they are by no means a full representation of one of the Wildcats’ veteran leaders. The hustle and intensity that he brings and his selfless gameplay elevate the team to a whole different level. “He’s going to make people around him look great, and that makes him look good,” sophomore guard Gabe York said. “I think people kind of look past him a little bit, but I think he’s the biggest key factor to our team.”

UA HEAD COACH Sean Hogan checks his notes during Arizona’s 4-3 loss to Liberty at the Tucson Convention Center on Saturday. The No. 4 Flames swept the Wildcats, and the normally reserved Hogan complained about the officials after the game.

BY JOEY PUTRELO The Daily Wildcat

Every single time the referees skate onto the ice at the Tucson Convention Center, the fans in the “Madhouse on Main Street” boo them. While Arizona hockey head coach Sean Hogan usually holds his tongue about referees, he made an exception on Saturday following a 4-3 loss to Liberty that lasted more than three hours. Over 20 penalties were called that night, and Hogan even called the refereeing of the game a “gong show.” “It’s partially the players’ fault, but you have to let kids play the game and figure it out,” Hogan said. “Ultimately it’s power play versus penalty kill, four on three, five on three — it’s not even hockey!” Friday, the No. 13 Wildcats (1215-0, 5-6-0 WCHL) fell to the No. 4 Flames (23-4-1) 5-2. After being swept at home by Liberty over the weekend, Arizona is now 4-9-0 against top-five ACHA opponents. Against the Flames this season,

the Wildcats finished 1-3-0 and were outscored 15-12. “There was a lot of learning opportunities for our guys,” Hogan said. “At the end of the day you’re coaching 18 to 23-year-olds who get pretty volatile, but our job as coaches is to get their energy focused in the right direction, and most of the time it is, but sometimes it doesn’t work.” While nursing a broken foot, Wildcats senior forward and captain Ansel Ivens-Anderson went on a scoring drought that lasted almost three months. He found the net in both games against the Flames over the weekend and has scored in each of the past four contests. “It definitely feels good to almost be all the way back and contributing,” Ivens-Anderson said. “The rehab process took a little longer than I would have liked but it’s nice now to be able to keep up with someone like [Andrew] Murmes or [Brennen] Parker and help the team get some goals.” This week Arizona will face its first ACHA Division II team since

sweeping Long Beach State in November, when San Diego State (10-9-0) visits the TCC. Against ACHA Division II squads this season, the Wildcats are a perfect 5-0-0, outscoring them 30-9. In the 2012-13 campaign, the UA also defeated every lower-level ACHA team on its schedule for the first time in seven seasons. The series against the Aztecs will cap off a three-month-long home stand as well before the Wildcats hit the road for the first time since Oct. 20. “I think it [the matchup versus San Diego State] will be a good change of pace for some of the guys,” said Arizona freshman goalie Garrett Patrick. “The home stretch has had its ups and downs. Some of these losses have brought out good character in the guys and we’ve learned from them, and it will help us in the long run on our road trip and heading into nationals.”

Two straight losses to ranked opponents diminished an otherwise productive weekend for the Arizona women’s basketball team. No. 4 Stanford beat the Wildcats (4-13, 0-6 Pac-12) 96-52 on Friday, and No. 19 California (13-4, 5-1) beat Arizona 79-64 on Monday. Arizona was more effective against the Golden Bears, both offensively and defensively, after being blown out on Friday. On the offensive end, the Wildcats increased their assists from seven in the Stanford game to nine against Cal. On the defensive end, the Wildcats paid extra attention to 3-point shooters, as they allowed California to shoot only 4-for-14 from 3-point territory. Leading Arizona was the trio of senior forward Erica Barnes, senior guard Carissa Crutchfield and freshman forward LaBrittney Jones. The trio produced 48 points, grabbed 19 rebounds and dished out four assists. However, the Wildcats could not contain the duo of California guard Brittany Boyd and forward Reshanda Gray. Boyd and Gray combined for 44 points, 17 rebounds and seven assists. “Those two obviously present a problem,” UA head coach Niya Butts said. “With all of that said, we’re still right in the ballgame with the chance to go down the stretch and win it.” A jump shot by Barnes capped off a 15-7 Arizona run and cut California’s 15-point lead down to seven with 2:44 left in the second half. However, the Cal lead would only increase from that point on. An essential component was California’s free throw shooting, as the Golden Bears converted 10-12 from the line in the last two minutes of the game. On Friday the Wildcats lost to Stanford (16-1, 5-0) for the 23rd

Gymcats suffer close loss at No. 12 Stanford The Daily Wildcat

Arizona gymnastics suffered its first loss of the season on Sunday, to Pac-12 rival Stanford, but beat Sacramento State in their first triangular meet. The No. 19 Gymcats (2-1, 0-1 Pac12) lost 195.925-195.850 to the No. 12 Cardinal, the host of the meet, but beat the Hornets, who finished with a score of 192.450. Arizona head coach Bill Ryden said he was happy with the score, but thinks the Gymcats can do better. “Even though we scored 195.850, which is a score that we can use, we didn’t do everything we expected of ourselves,� Ryden said in a press release. “I’m proud of the girls for how hard they fought.

Urquidi and sophomore Naoki Takeda both had victories on Friday during the match against Texas A&M Corpus Christi, but Arizona still fell short. “The morning match, I felt we were a little tight for the first hour or so,” Berkowitz said. “We settled in later in the match, but it was a little too late.” After a weekend on the road, Arizona will have its home opener on Friday when it hosts NAU.

Q How many drinks do you

have for a pre-game?

A. a short period of time – but it doesn’t have to be that way. No matter what your drinking buddies may be doing, the fact is For many, pre-gaming means drinking lots of alcohol in

that you ultimately decide what kind of night you’ll have.

Most experienced drinkers know that “too much, too fast” is a recipe for things we all try to avoid: getting sick, run-ins with law enforcement, regrets/embarrassment, and injuries, to name a few. Savvy drinkers control how they drink so their drinks don’t wind up controlling them. How do they do it? Think of the pre-game as a time to be social before the big event, rather than just focusing on the alcohol. Keep these tried and true tips in mind for a night that you will actually enjoy (and remember): 1. Set a limit on the drinks you’ll have – Pick a number that will help you maintain your buzz (a blood alcohol content or BAC below .08 is best) and stick to it. You may be surprised how much better your night turns out. Online BAC calculators can help. 2. Avoid or limit shots – While a shot of liquor has about the same amount of alcohol as a bottle of beer, the difference is the time it takes to drink it. Stick to beer or lower alcohol drinks to regulate your buzz without going overboard. 3. Eat food – Yeah, we’re all aware that college parties aren’t known for their grub. Make sure your pre-game includes a good meal to avoid getting “shwasted” before things even get started. Added bonus: moderate drinkers consume fewer calories than heavy drinkers, because they avoid extra calories from alcohol as well as the dreaded “drunchies.” 4. If you drink, don’t drive – Do this and you’re in good company: 89% of UA students have a designated driver when they drink, according to the 2013 Health & Wellness Survey, which had 3,055 undergraduate student respondents. 5. Step Up – Help a friend in need and learn what to do if someone might be experiencing alcohol poisoning. Check out for more info. New Year + New You event, 1/29 on the UA Mall from 10am-2pm. There will be games, giveaways, and tons of campus resources to help you get 2014 off to a great start!

Winners and losers of this year’s Academy Awards nominations BY Taylor armosino The Daily Wildcat

On Thursday, the Academy announced its nominations for next month’s Oscars. For the third straight year, nine films were nominated for Best Picture, yet there were good arguments for nominating four or five more. With only 20 acting slots — five each for Best Actor and Actress and Supporting Actor and Actress, there were worthy candidates left on the outside looking in. Here are the big winners and losers:

Daniels’ The Butler,” “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom,” “Fruitvale Station” and “August: Osage County,” all of which were completely shut out of the Best Picture and Best Director categories. “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom” was nominated for Best Original Song — ensuring Bono will be at the Oscars — while Sandra Bullock and Meryl Streep received nods for “August: Osage County,” salvaging little from a dismal awards season for the production company.

Winner: McConaughey


McConaughey’s career is on a steep upswing right now. In David O. Russell’s “American addition to his hilarious cameo Hustle” tied with “Gravity” to lead in “The Wolf of Wall Street” and all pictures with 10 nominations. lead role on HBO’s new crown Russell is jewel “True nominated for D e t e c t i v e ,” Best Director, the 44-yearwhile many of old Texan Academy Awards Facts the film’s stars — also received • The Oscar’s Ceremony is Christian Bale, a Best Actor Sunday, March 2. Amy Adams, nod for • This is the 86th Annual Bradley Cooper his work Academy Awards. and Jennifer in “Dallas • Typically the ceremony is Lawrence — Buyers Club” in late February, but this received nods in — a film that year it is later to avoid the actor/actress netted him a conflict with the Winter Olympics. categories. Last Golden Globe year, Russell’s last week. “Silver Linings L o o k i n g P l a y b o o k ” ahead, he will became the first movie in 31 be playing the lead in Christopher years to land nominations in all Nolan’s upcoming science-fiction four acting categories. “American thriller “Interstellar.” Hustle” duplicated that feat and is a favorite — along with “12 Loser: Movies that take place Years a Slave” and “Gravity” — to on boats win Best Picture. Both “Captain Phillips” and “All Is Lost” had disappointing Loser: The Weinstein Company Thursday mornings. Although the Thursday morning was a rough former received a well-deserved one for the Weinstein Company. Best Picture nod, its main star, Weinstein produced films “Lee Tom Hanks, and director, Paul

Winner: “American Hustle”

Greengrass, were casualties of this year’s exceptionally strong candidates for this category. The film had nominations elsewhere, but the exclusion of its two biggest figureheads makes it an Oscar nominations loser. “All is Lost” is a lesser-known but very good survival tale about a man at sea starring Robert Redford. Looking for his first Best Actor nomination in 40 years, Redford was left high and dry.

Winner: Sally Hawkins, “Blue Jasmine”

Despite its many shortcomings, “Blue Jasmine” produced some outstanding female performances in a year lacking them. Cate Blanchett no doubt will run away with Best Actress for her lead in the film, but Sally Hawkins, playing the role of her working class younger sister, went 12 rounds with her counterpart. Given all the attention afforded to Blanchett’s performance, easily the best of any actress this year, and the lack of awards momentum generated by “Blue Jasmine,” Hawkins was thought of as a long shot to grab a nomination. Nevertheless, she managed to grab Best Supporting nods in both the Golden Globes and the Oscars. It’s been a big few weeks for Hawkins.

Loser: Oprah Winfrey, “Lee Daniels’ The Butler”

Down goes Winfrey! Down goes Winfrey! With Hawkins in, somebody had to be out, and that somebody was Oprah Winfrey. Again, it was a disappointing season for “Lee Daniels’ The Butler.” It’s not tragic that Winfrey was left out, but it is surprising given the lackluster race and her star power.

Perdido Productions

Winner: “Nebraska”

It was a big day for Alexander Payne’s “Nebraska.” The film scored a Best Picture nod along with nominations for Bruce Dern for Best Actor, June Squibb for Best Supporting Actress and Payne for Best Director. It also grabbed nominations in Writing and Cinematography. The black-and-white commentary on Midwestern America has yet to crack $10 million at the box office, but its multiple nominations should help moving that forward.

Davis.” It was thought of all along as more of a critics’ movie than an Oscar film, and across-theboard critical acclaim couldn’t help shed that distinction. The film received two nominations, for Cinematography and Sound mixing. This is bittersweet for a film that had legitimate arguments for nominations for Best Actor (Oscar Issac), Best Director (Coen Brothers) and Best Picture.

Loser: “Inside Llewyn Davis”

Though not unexpected, it was a bad day for “Inside Llewyn
