Other Best Picture nominees include: Captain Phillips, Dallas Buyers Club, Her, Nebraska, Philomena and The Wolf of Wall Street.It was also a big morning for Meryl Streep, who received a Best Actress nomination for August Osage County. It was the actress’s 18th nomination, the most of any actor. The 86th Annual Academy Awards, hosted by Ellen DeGeneres, airs March 2nd on ABC.
Among the Oscar snubs:
Tom Hanks, considered a lock for a Best Actor nomination for Captain Phillips, didn’t make the cut.
Also left out of the Best Actor category was Robert Redford for the film All Is Lost.
Saving Mr. Banks’ Emma Thompson, considered a shoo-in for a Best Actress nod, was left out of the category.
The Coen Brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis received no major nominations (they received two minor nods for Best Cinematography and Best Sound).
Although American Hustle received 10 nominations, they were left out of the makeup and hairstyling categories, which many people felt it was a lock to win.
Lee Daniels’ The Butler (and Oprah Winfrey) also received no nominations.
