2014 Oscar Nominations: 'American Hustle' Leads the Pack

For once, the buzz was right. Virtually all the Oscar-bait movies got a nod in the 2014 Academy Awards Oscars Nominations list. The Academy recognized American Hustle, Nebraska, Gravity, Dallas Buyer's Club, Wolf of Wall Street and 12 Years a Slave in multiple categories. Even Oscar-worthy films that never enjoyed wide release, like Philomena and Woody Allen's darkly funny and disturbing Blue Jasmine, made the cut.

Most films that received Director and/or Best Film nominations also got nods for Best Actor or Best Actress, with at least one notable exception: Joaquin Phoenix's everyman turn in Her was ignored in the Best Actor category, even though the film was nominated for Best Picture, Music and Screenplay. Perhaps the academy didn't know what to make of the love story between a man and his body-less operating system.

This year's selections are filled with moving and memorable performances, from the enchanting Frozen to Matthew McConaughey's stunning turn in The Dallas Buyer's Club. At least the Motion Picture Academy casts a wider net with nine Best Picture nominations; the rest of the categories are capped at five.

The nominations represent the official kickoff of the Oscars Awards season. From this moment forward, every name and film mentioned will be repeated countless times on TV talk shows and in commercials, tweets, Facebook posts and movie posters.

Now that we have the full list (see the major award nominees below) you can start handicapping the winners (and catching all the films you missed) and then we can all watch together on March 2 when the academy hands out all those gold statuettes.
