2014 Oscar Nominations Gravity

The nominations for the 86th Academy Awards were announced this morning with Gravity and American Hustle leading the way with 10 noms each, followed by 12 Years a Slave with nine. I’m a little surprised Star Trek Into Darkness wasn’t nominated in every category including Foreign Language Film (Klingon). However, it’s not surprising that Meryl Streep is nominated for an 18th time. Yowza!
