Oscars 2014! See The Nomination Snubs & Surprises

Jennifer Lawrence

And the award (might) go to ...

As predicted, American Hustle and Gravity both dominated the Oscar nominations this morning, each earning an impressive 10 nods, including Best Picture, Best Actress, and Best Director.

12 Years a Slave followed closely behind with nine nominations, while Dallas Buyers Club, Captain Phillips, and Nebraska (this year's surprise contender) each took home six. 

Noticeably absent from the nomination list was fan-favorite Tom Hanks, a double-feature contender for his starring roles in both Saving Mr. Banks and Captain Phillips — a decidedly un-supercalifragilisticexpialidocious turn of events, as Walt Disney would surely opine.

Other snubs included Joaquin Phoenix's portrayal of a lovelorn nerd in the tech rom-com Her, the Coen brothers' Inside Llewlyn Davis, and a posthumous Supporting Actor honor for James Gandolfini's final role in Enough Said. It's suspected that award will go to Jonah Hill for his impressive performance in The Wolf of Wall Street.

Stars duking it out for title of Best Actor include Bruce Dern, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Christian Bale, Leonardo DiCaprio and Matthew McConaughey, while Amy Adams, Judi Dench, Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett and Meryl Streep battle it out for the coveted title of Best Actress.

Overall, with the exception of Tom Hanks and James Gandolfini, not a lot of upsets this year. And fear not — Jennifer Lawrence is up for Best Supporting Actress. You really think they'd snub America's reigning Queen of Cool?
