Oscar Nominations for 2015

The obvious snub in this list is of course the movie Joy not being nominated for best picture. This is a big mistake along with not nominating Concussion or Will Smith for best actor. I also thought that 10 pictures were normally nominated each year. If that were the case then Concussion and Joy would be nominated. Also, why is Mad Max nominated?  This nomination makes no sense when you consider the omissions Concussion and Joy.
