article imageOscars: 'Gravity' and 'American Hustle' lead with 10 nominations

By Tim O'Brien     Jan 16, 2014 in Entertainment
Beverly Hills - "American Hustle" and "Gravity" lead the way with 10 nominations each as the Oscar nominations were announced live Thursday morning.
Actor Chris Hemsworth and Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs had the honor of making the announcement, which was also carried on ABC's "Good Morning America." However, not exactly live, at least not in the central time zone.
No longer are the top films grabbing anyone by surprise as they have been winning as the award season has progressed. "American Hustle" and "12 Years a Slave's" most recent wins came at the Golden Globes. However, the votes for Oscar nominations were already in when those were handed out.
Awards are often about momentum and timing. "Gravity" was an early front-runner but other films have gained and passed it. With its boatload of nominations, it enters the picture once more. Its director is solid, too. Even if the film falls, Alfonso Cuaron may do just fine.
BEST PICTURE
"12 Years a Slave"
"American Hustle"
"Captain Phillips"
"Dallas Buyers Club"
"Gravity"
"Her"
"Nebraska"
"Philomena"
"The Wolf of Wall Street"
BEST DIRECTOR
Alfonso Cuarón, "Gravity"
Steve McQueen, "12 Years a Slave"
Alexander Payne, "Nebraska"
David O. Russell, "American Hustle"
Martin Scorsese, "The Wolf of Wall Street"
Conventional wisdom is that one could easily take the four films in which its director is not nominated and just consider them window dressing. That would leave out "Her," "Dallas Buyers Club," "Captain Phillips" and "Philomena,"
It seems like the mixed feelings toward "The Wolf of Wall Street" didn't phase voters while the black and white film, "Nebraska" grabbed six nominations, a surprise for sure.
