Alfonso Cuaron (winner for Gravity), J.J. Abrams (helmer of the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens), Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs and Chris Pine (Star Trek) were on hand to make the announcements. So, who scored?

Included in the Best Picture nominees were Selma, Boyhood, The Imitation Game, The Grand Budapest Hotel, American Sniper, The Theory of Everything and Whiplash.

The ultra competitive actress category found Rosamund Pike earning her first nod for her stunning turn for the riveting Gone Girl. She was joined by Julianne Moore for Still Alice, Marion Cotillard for Two Days, One Night, Felicity Jones for The Theory of Everything and Reese Witherspoon for Wild.

Best Acting nods went to Benedict Cumberbatch for The Imitation Game, Bradley Cooper for American Sniper, Steve Carell for Foxcatcher, Michael Keaton for Birdman and Eddie Redmayne for The Theory of Everything.

Best Supporting Actor nominations found the man who we think will win, J.K. Simmons for Whiplash, being joined by Robert Duvall for The Judge, Ethan Hawke for Boyhood, Edward Norton for Birdman and Mark Ruffalo for Foxcatcher.

Finally, the last of the major categories, Best Supporting Actress, finds five supremely talented women competing to win the coveted golden Oscar trophy – Patricia Arquette for Boyhood, Laura Dern for Wild, Keira Knightley for The Imitation Game, Emma Stone for Birdman and Meryl Streep for Into the Woods
