Oscar Nominees Announced; American Hustle and Gravity Dominate

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

Oscar nominations were announced early Thursday morning and it looks like American Hustle and Gravity have a good chance of winning big: they were both nominated for the most awards, a full 10. Following were 12 Years a Slave with nine nominations, while Dallas Buyers Club, Captain Phillips and Nebraska all nabbed six.

Notable people and movies that missed out: Emma Thompson or really anyone in Saving Mr. Banks, Oprah or really anyone in The Butler and Blackfish. But Meryl Streep got her 18th Oscar nomination, so the world is still spinning on its axis.
