The 86th annual Oscar nominations were announced early this morning.
“American Hustle” and “Gravity” both came out on top, with each film receiving 10 nominations apiece.
It was a solid year for Australian talent too, with Cate Blanchett nominated in the Best Actress category for her role in Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine.
Designer Catherine Martin scored a double nomination for costume design and production design on The Great Gatsby.
Beverly Dunn is also up for production design on The Great Gatsby.
While we’re pretty satisfied with this year’s list of nods, there were a few big surprises and snubs.
