Good morning! Welcome to dark o’clock for the live blogging of the 2014 Oscar Nominations! We’re going to be posting the nominations for the 86th Academy Awards right here on this page (almost) as quickly as they are announced – and you can watch the presentation in the video above.
Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs and Chris Hemsworth (aka James Hunt, aka Thor) took to the stage today to present this year’s nominees. I’ll be trying to keep up with them as they (very very quickly, traditionally) announce the titles and names for all of the major categories.
You can check out all of the nominees printed below and be sure to sound off in the comments section with your thoughts/rants. The major categories will be posted here immediately (as they are announced) and the rest will be posted once they’re made public from the Academy (usually within a couple of hours).
**UPDATE** All categories are now posted including the final nomination tally.
Take a look at the full list of nominees printed below. See anything interesting or surprising? Anyone snubbed or is anything garnering undeserved attention? Make it known in the comments below!
The award winners will be announced on Sunday, MARCH 2nd at 7pm ET live on ABC at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood. Ellen DeGeneres returns from a seven year hiatus to host the ceremony. Haters be damned, I’m excited for Ellen – it will be classy and most assuredly funny. We’ll see you in a month or so for a live blogging/discussion session and hopefully some good times (and lots of snark from our resident buzzkill, Kurt Halfyard!).
