The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences announced this morning the nominees for the Annual Academy Awards 2014. The ceremony was hosted by the young Hollywood star, best known for his remarkable body, Chris Hemsworth and Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs.

"American Hustle" and "Gravity" led nominations for the 86th Academy Awards with 10 each, followed by the Best Picture Golden Globes' winner "12 Years a Slave" with 9. Best picture category this year has nine entrants, including three mentioned above, plus "Captain Phillips", "Dallas Buyers Club", "Her", "Nebraska", "Philomena" and "The Wolf of Wall Street".

In the past few years the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences and PricewaterhouseCoopers began to follow a complicated weighted system for best picture, which allows for five-to-ten contenders.

For the second consecutive year, David O. Russell's productions compete in all four main categories. Meryl Streep continues her streak with an 18th nomination as the other old dogs Tom Hanks, Emma Thompson, Robert Redford and Paul Greengrass didn't make it though. Robert Redford took it calm but blamed the distributor Lionsgate for not supporting "as effectively as he would have liked", the movie "All is lost" was initially seen as an Oscar favorite.

The winners will be revealed in Los Angeles on Sunday evening, March 2nd on ABC.
