Oscars 2014

American Hustle, Gravity Lead Academy Awards Nominations

Oscars 2014

Bright and early this morning — 8:38 a.m. ET; 5:38 a.m. PT — in the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater, Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs and actor Chris Hemsworth announced the nominees for the 86th Academy Awards. 

“American Hustle” and “Gravity” led with 10 nominations each, while “12 Years a Slave” followed closely with nine. Nine films were nominated for best picture.

The Oscars will air live Sunday, March 2, 7 p.m. ET; 4 p.m. PT on ABC. Ellen DeGeneres will host the show, which is produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, along with a big production team.

The show will feature a “movie heroes” theme — thus the choice of Hemsworth, who’s played Thor in two movies and the upcoming 2015 flick “The Avengers: Age of Ultron.” The Oscars will honor big-screen real-life heroes, superheroes, popular heroes and animated heroes, both past and present, as well as the filmmakers who have brought them to life in theaters.
