Oscar 2014 nominations: Complete list of the 86th Academy Award nominees
86th Annual Academy Award nominees (Oscar) announced today, Thursday 16, 2014 – see full list of nominations below
American Hustle leads the Oscars race alongside the film Gravity with 10 nominations. 3D space thriller Gravity is a critics favourite with a total of 10 nominations going in to the 86th Academy Awards. Sandra Bullock earned a best actress nomination for her role in the film.
Actor Chiwetel Ejiofor earned a nomination for best actor in the best picture-nominated film 12 Years A Slave. ’12 Years A Slave’ came out strong with lots of nods but Gravity is the critics favorite to win.
“At no point during filming, in the sweltering heat of New Orleans, did any of us ever foresee the journey this film would take us all on. Steve McQueen created an entire family to tell one man’s tale and I am delighted that so many of this family have also been recognized today. I am hugely grateful to the Academy for this great honor, and, of course, to Solomon Northup for sharing his story through his breathtaking book.”
“This has been an amazing ride, and to receive nine nominations from the Academy is testament to all of the hard work. And for that I am truly grateful.”
The major snub on this year’s Oscar is Oprah Winfrey and The Butler – “When The Butler first opened in theaters, many thought Winfrey was a shoo-in. Now? No Golden Globe nod and no chance for Oscar glory.”
The 86th Academy Awards will be held on March 2.
