The list of nominees shakes out pretty much like you’d expect given how awards season is going so far. _American Hustle_ and _Gravity_ and _12 Years a Slave_ have all the nominations, _Wolf of Wall_ Street has just five, albeit those five are in the big categories.

_Dallas Buyers Club_ also gets six nods. It’ll be interesting to see if McConaughey and Leto take home the acting trophies at this one as well.

Can’t tell if I’m surprised at the near total lack of nominations for _All is Lost_ and _Inside Llewyn Davis_ but it’s a bit disappointing regardless.

It’s gonna be an interesting night. Ellen DeGeneres will be hosting on the 2nd of March this year. Look for our live blog as we watch.
