With the Golden Globes over and done with, the official start of awards season is upon us. There are plenty of awards between now and March, but there’s not an award ceremony more important than the Academy Awards. It’s the goal of every actor, director, writer, etc. to win an Oscar, because that means you’re one of the best to ever ply your trade, no matter what that trade might be. And if you have an Oscar, I doubt you’ll turn down another one if the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences wants to put you in the super-illustrious club of multi-Oscar winners. The 2014 Oscar nominations have been announced, and it’s a very top-heavy field.
The top nominees were American Hustle and Gravity, each with 10 nominations, and 12 Years A Slave, with 9 nominations. American Hustle scored nominations for Best Picture, Best Director for David O. Russell, Best Actor for Christian Bale and Best Supporting Actor for Bradley Cooper, Best Actress for Amy Adams, Best Supporting Actress for America’s sweetheart Jennifer Lawrence, and Best Adapted Screenplay. Gravity was nominated for a slew of technical awards, Best Picture, Best Director for Alfonso Cuaron, and Best Actress for Sandra Bullock. Perhaps Martin Scorsese can add to his trophy case for The Wolf Of Wall Street.
Here’s a full list of nominees. The 86th Academy Awards will air live on ABC from Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre.
