The wait is over film fans. The 86th Academy Awards nominations were released this morning. Leading the charge with the most nominations is "American Hustle" and "12 Years a Slave", with "Gravity" also coming in with a slew of nominations.

As is the case with every year since the competition is so tight, there are several actors and films that didn't make the cut. Such acclaimed films as "Fruitvale Station", "The Butler", "Inside Llewyn Davis", "Mud" and "Blue is the Warmest Color", received no nominations. Several actors considered some of the best of our time like Tom Hanks and Robert Redford, were also left off the Best Actor category. Emma Thompson's work in "Saving Mr. Banks" and Oprah Winfrey's incredible performance in "The Butler" were also not mentioned, as well as many others.

Whether they can be considered snubs or just didn't win the votes due to this being an incredible year for film, the choice is up to you. Several amazing films are still being honored however and the awards show with Ellen DeGeneres hosting, is destined to be a fun and colorful evening for all.
