The speculation is over as to who will be nominated for an Academy Award as the nominations for the 86th Oscars have been announced. Live from the Los Angeles headquarters of the Academy, the nominations answered many a filmmaker and performer’s prayers, while disappointing some who expected to hear their name called. For American Hustle and Gravity, it was a huge morning as each film got 10 nominations!

American Hustle Cast

The broadcast began with Ellen DeGeneres and her Here We Go ad and then Oscar president Sheryl Boone Isaacs and Chris Hemsworth took the stage and we were off. They began by announcing the Best Supporting Actress category and it went pretty much as expected by Movie Fanatic with Julia Roberts scoring for August: Osage County, and she was joined by June Squibb for Nebraska, Sally Hawkins for Blue Jasmine, Jennifer Lawrence for American Hustle and Lupita Nyong’O for 12 Years a Slave.

Best Picture nominations used nine of the ten spots it could have as Gravity, American Hustle and 12 Years a Slave followed up months of expectations of getting a nomination with the news they had gotten one. They were joined by Captain Phillips, Dallas Buyers Club, Her, Nebraska, Philomena and The Wolf of Wall Street.
