The Nominees for the 86th Academy Awards

Amongst the many films we’ve championed this year, a number have been recognized with the recent announcement of the nominees for the 86th Academy Awards. Notable selections include The Wolf of Wall Street and American Hustle being nominated for Best Picture, performance by an actor in both a leading and supporting role, and for the direction by Martin Scorsese and David O. Russell. Additional favorites like Her nabbed Best Picture credentials as well as Best Screenplay, and jack-of-all-trades Pharrell Williams was honored for Original Song for “Happy” from Despicable Me 2.
