2014 Oscar Nominations Announced - Were There Any Surprises?

Read the list of nominees for the 86th Academy Awards - are there any big surprises this year?

2014 Oscar nominations

Acclaimed films 12 Years a Slave and American Hustle took home big prizes at the 2014 Golden Globes ceremony this past Sunday, while actors like Leonardo DiCaprio, Matthew McConaughey and Cate Blanchett were recognized for their performances in 2013. However, the Oscars don't split up nominees into different genre categories (drama and comedy/musical), so it remains to be seen which of these films/stars will be crowned at this year's ceremony.

The nominations for the 86th Academy Awards were announced this morning by actor Chris Hemsworth (Thor: The Dark World, Rush) - in keeping with the "heroes'" theme this year for the ceremony (don't ask) - and Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences President Cheryl Boone Isaacs at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills.
