Oscar Nominations

86th Academy Awards, Nominations Announcements

The Oscar nominations are in! Actor Chris Hemsworth and Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs announced the nominations for the 86th Academy Awards® earlier today.

Two films lead the way with 10 nominations each: American Hustle and Gravity. The David O. Russell drama and Alfonso Cuarón space epic both received nominations in the Best Picture category, along with nominations for their leading male and female performances.

12 Years A Slave follows hot on their tails with nine nominations, including one for Best Picture.

The other films nominated for Best Picture are Captain Phillips, Dallas Buyers Club, Her, Nebraska, Philomena and The Wolf of Wall Street.

Last year, Silver Linings Playbook became the first film to receive nominations for Best Picture, Directing, Writing and all four acting categories since Reds (1981).  American Hustle repeats that feat, with lead actor Christian Bale going head-to-head with fellow Brit Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Year’s A Slave) in that category. If Ejiofor wins he will be the first British Black Actor to pick up the leading actor award. Joining them is Leonardo DiCaprio for his role in The Wolf of Wall Street. DiCaprio has been nominated twice before – will it be third time lucky? Or could they all lose out to veteran actor, Bruce Dern, nominated for Nebraska? This is only his second nomination, the first being in 1978 for Coming Home. Completing the line-up in the leading actor category is Matthew McConaughey for Dallas Buyers Club. This is his first nomination.

As hotly anticipated, Sandra Bullock is nominated in the Leading Actress category for Gravity. She has won the Oscar before, for The Blind Side. Amy Adams gets her first nomination in a leading role for American Hustle, but has previously been nominated no less than four times for best supporting actress. Cate Blanchett is also nominated for Blue Jasmine, but all three are joined by two of possibly the greatest living actresses – Judi Dench for Philomena and Meryl Streep, for August: Osage County. This is Streep’s eighteenth acting nomination, and is a three time winner: one for best support in Kramer Vs Kramer and a further two, in a leading role, for Sophie’s Choice and The Iron Lady.
