No Big Surprises But A Few Snubs at 2014 Oscar Nominations

Sorry about that, Tom Hanks, Lee Daniels, and the wigs in American Hustle

If you paid attention to this year's Golden Globes, you won’t be surprised by the 2014 Oscar nominations, announced early this morning from a bunker deep beneath Hollywood (read: a standard press conference).

American Hustle and Gravity topped the list, receiving 10 nominations apiece, and 12 Years a Slave earned nine. Nebraska, which earned a few nominations but no trophies at the Golden Globes, was another big winner, netting six Oscar nods.

As for the snubs, although Barkhad Abdi earned a nomination for best supporting actor in Captain Phillips, the film's lead, Tom Hanks, was shut out. Also shut out were the Coen Bros.' Inside Llewyn Davis and Lee Daniels' The Butler (sorry, Oprah). Perhaps the strangest snub: American Hustle didn't receive a nomination for its wigged out hairpieces in the makeup and hairstyling category.
