Awards season is upon us and we’ve already gotten one down, with a few more to go. And while the Golden Globes aired last Sunday with little overall fanfare and a few surprise winners, it’s safe to say that everyone’s been awaiting the nominations announcement for the upcoming Academy Awards. 

Rush actor Chris Hemsworth and Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences president Cheryl Boone were up bright and early this morning to announce the 2014 Academy Award nominees. Leading the pack with ten nominations each are David O. Russell’s American Hustle and Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity. 12 Years a Slave follows very closely behind with nine nominations overall. 

Tom Hanks and Robert Redford were both booted out of the Best Actor category, even though there was high hopes for them to be nominated. Although Hanks’s Captain Phillips costar Barkhad Abdi did get nominated for Best Supporting Actor. Leonardo DiCaprio did, however, score a Best Actor nomination along with Matthew McConaughey, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Bruce Dern, and Christian Bale.
