The 86th Academy Awards nominations were announced by Chris Hemsworth and Cheryl Boone Isaacs on Jan. 16 and as expected, the films 12 Years a Slave and American Hustle had a major presence with nominations in the acting, directing and Best Picture categories (though if we were to choose one big positive it was Philomena being named among the nine Best Picture contenders). See the rest of those contenders and the full list of nominees for this year's Oscars below (and watch video interviews with nominees Jonah Hill, Matthew McConaughey, Amy Adams, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Lupita Nyong'o and more in Fandango's video series FrontRunners).

Congratulations to ALL the OSCAR Nominees for your earnest-Heart passionate works in your Films: YOU are all worthy of the Prize and are Winners!! Have a spectacular Event. Awesome!!
Somewhat predictable nominees. Missing some thing we really wish hadn't been overlooked. But here's what we, at LittleMovieBook, predict will be the winners! [BLOCKED WEBSITE]
Great list this year! Though I wish some movies like Saving Mr. Banks and Monsters University got nominated. I hope Gravity wins Best Picture this year
Very happy to see that the CrapFish, I mean Blackfish was not nominated. What a load of lies that was!
Very surprised and upset that Pacific Rim was snubbed for best visual effect!
I hate movies that pop in for the last second nominee. A great film like, Lone Survivor, fails to have a nationwide release for 2013, yet does not get any good nominations for the 2013 awards. Also, The Butler, gets the big shaft for the 2013 awards.
Out of the Furnace had some great performances. One of Christian Bale's best. Hope Sandra Bullock wins Best Actress for Gravity. To me it truly was an academy award performance. I have seen all of the 9 best pic nominees except for Nebraska.
12 years is controversial to be sure. It is a metaphor for everyday life as a black man.
Unless you actually know the AA staff and leadership...I must presume that your political correctness is actually racial bigotry.
Just what are you actually saying, billyrr?
12 years a Slave will win everything...just because the academy wants to seem politally correct
Happy that Thomas Newman got a Best Score nomination for "Saving Mr. Banks." I got my fingers crossed that he will FINALLY get his due.
Very glad that "Her" earned a Best Original Screenplay nomination, though I wouldn't mind seeing the Best Original Screenplay Oscar go to "American Hustle." Both were amazing movies with charismatic performances from talented actors & actresses. However, "Her" was an emotional movie that drove me to tears, especially during the "Moon Song" scene.
Original song. Where is Lana Del Rey - "Young & Beautiful" from The Great Gatsby?
L&B is haunting. It's a pity that there is not a poll taken to present to the Academy for their consideration.
In all of The Oscars history, whichever film wins "Best Film Editing" (NOT Sound Editing, just Best Editing), early in the evening~ALWAYS goes on to win Best Picture at the end of the night. It has never not happened. That's why Ben Affleck & George Clooney both teared up & were so happy when "Argo" won Best Editing last year for the 2013 Oscars. They knew they had nabbed Best Pic. So from the above nominations, only FIVE of the nine movies up for Best Picture are also up for Best Film Editing~ 12 Years a Slave, American Hustle, Captain Phillips, Dallas Buyers Club, & Gravity. Which means that one of these five will win Best Picture. The other four nominated for Best Pic~Her, Nebraska, Philomena, & The Wolf of Wall Street~will not win.
What a terrific trivia accomplishment.
Is anyone checking Tar's claim?
I disagree. Sandra Bullock was performing against against a blue screen, for the most part alone. Under the circumstances her acting was "out of this world".
Sorry, I don't think Bullock deserves a nomination, unless it's for breathing hard during the entire movie. Nor do I think Gravity should have been nominated best movie. JMHO I am a huge sci-fi fan and have seen far better movies than this.
Look out for Lone Survivor next year- a must see.
I agree 100%, the movie was ok and I'm a big fan of Sandra Bullock ; however,, I have to agree, I don't think it's Oscar worthy!
My vote would be for 12 Years! That's my personal opinion. :)
Having said that, I still wish good luck to all the nominees - Gravity included - I have no idea what it took to make the movie so I can't go further than my personal opinion; not that impressed.
12 Years a Slave* :)
"12 Years A Slave" for Best Picture!
No Gravity for Best Picture
for the uninfrormed,( like Legal Eagle 459,) re: "THE BUTLER." they took lots of what was in the true "BUTLER'S BOOK" and made quite a few changes to this movie.. like Reagan. the real Butler had a photo of Reagan in his home for his feelings towards Reagan. of course the left had to depict him as a Racist. , yes Reagan voted against Arpartheid burt was asked to do so by the blacks as it would hurt them with jobs. like President Johnson who passed the Civil Rights Act. so how come they didn't tell you that 80% of the Democrats in Congress voted "NO." so how do you think it passed, Legal Eagle? check it out instead of listening to stories. and their is much more. Google it and read the stories and truths and falsehoods about the movie.
