THE OSCAR NOMINEES


"American Hustle" and "Gravity" Got the Most Oscar Nominations  
 
Nominations for this year's Oscars were announced yesterday.  "American Hustle" and "Gravity" tied for the most with 10 apiece.  "12 Years a Slave" followed with nine.
 
All three of them received a nomination for Best Picture, along with "Captain Phillips", "Dallas Buyers Club", "Her", "Nebraska", "Philomena" and "The Wolf of Wall Street".
 
MARTIN SCORSESE scored his eighth Oscar nomination for "The Wolf of Wall Street", which also earned LEONARDO DICAPRIO a nomination for Best Actor.  It's his fifth time being nominated.
 
MERYL STREEP secured her record 18th nomination for "August: Osage County".  Her competition in the Best Actress category includes JUDI DENCH, who received her seventh nomination and CATE BLANCHETT, who got her sixth.
 
In the Best Original screenplay category, WOODY ALLEN received his 16th screenwriting nomination . . . this time for "Blue Jasmine".
 
ABC is airing this year's ceremony live on Sunday, March 2nd.  ELLEN DEGENERES is hosting for the second time.  She also handled the 2007 show.
 

 

The Oscar "Snubs" Include:  Oprah, Robert Redford and Tom Hanks  
 
As usual, there were a lot of perceived "snubs" after the Oscar nominations were announced yesterday . . . here's a rundown of the misses that the Internet has deemed the MOST tragic.
 
OPRAH WINFREY and "The Butler" were completely shut out . . . just as they were at the "Golden Globes".
 
TOM HANKS did NOT receive a nomination for either "Captain Phillips" or "Saving Mr. Banks".  A few months ago, there was some thought that he could be nominated for BOTH movies.
 
EMMA THOMPSON also wasn't nominated for "Saving Mr. Banks".
 
ROBERT REDFORD was passed over for "All Is Lost".  When asked about the snub, Robert blamed it on the movie's lack of distribution . . . and the producers for not campaigning for the film to get the attention of the Academy.
 
Recently, the COEN BROTHERS' movie "Inside Llewyn Davis" had some momentum as a potential dark horse Best Picture candidate . . . but it didn't even get a nomination in that category.
 
In fact, it only got two nominations . . . for Best Sound Mixing and Best Cinematography.  Some people were also surprised it wasn't nominated in a music category, since it's about a musician and is filled with original music.
 
 
Unlike Oprah and Tom Hanks, "Bad Grandpa" Got an Oscar Nomination . . . and So Did "The Lone Ranger"  
 
Some people thought TOM HANKS' Walt Disney movie, "Saving Mr. Banks", would be a PLAYER at the Oscars, but when the nominations were announced, it received the same number as "Jackass Presents:  Bad Grandpa". And amazingly, that number is NOT ZERO.  (???)
 
It's ONE.  "Bad Grandpa" was nominated for Best Makeup and Hairstyling, along with the ESTEEMED JOHNNY DEPP movie, "The Lone Ranger".
 
"Saving Mr. Banks" was only nominated for Best Score.
