Oscars nominations 2014 in full

The Academy picks its frontrunners


The Oscars nominations for 2014 are finally here, with Gravity and American Hustle emerging as clear favourites with 10 nominations a-piece.

Both films landed acclaim in numerous categories, with Steve McQueen's 12 Years A Slave following close behind with nine nominations - including Best Director and Best Picture.

Meanwhile, Meryl Streep was given the 18th nomination of her career for August: Osage County - if she wins, she'll tie with Katherine Hepburn's record-setting four Best Actress baldies.

There were few surprises in the Academy's choices (despite quite a few strange snubs), though it was particularly surprising to see The Wolf Of Wall Street lavished with as much love as it was, especially considering the Academy's usual aversion to controversy-courting movies.

      Damn Tam Honks and Paul Geengrass got snubbed, not shocked Paul was but I thought Honks was an Oscar darling. Loved how the crowd chuckled when Meryl Streep's name was mentioned, it's gotten to the stage where she gets nominated for looking in the mirror. Daniel Bruhl was also snubbed, he should have been nominated instead of Cooper who IMO was the weakest performance in American Hustle, and that's coming from a fan of his.

      No love for the Coen brothers and Inside Llewyn Davis... Earlier in 2013, I thought Harrison Ford would be nominated for his fantastic role in "42"...

      Good point Coen's got snubbed too, thought for sure they'd get a screenplay nomination.

      Yeah, I thought the Coen's would be nominated, especially after the BAFTA nod, a real shame.

      I think right now Jared Leto, Cate Blanchett, Frozen and Alfonso Cuaron are locks to win Oscars. Best Picture, Actor and Supporting Actress are toss ups IMO.
