The Oscar nominations were handed out this morning and we finally get to see what all the hype in 2013 will lead to. Awards season is upon us and everything will culminate with the Oscars in March when Ellen DeGeneres hosts the big show.
Last year it seemed that Best Actor was a lock as soon as Daniel Day-Lewis was announced as a nominee and we may see that happen again this year. Day-Lewis isn’t nominated but Cate Blanchett is carrying the kind of weight heading into the awards this year.
But Blanchett isn’t owning the category like Day-Lewis did as she has pretty significant competition across the board this year. She’s the clear cut favorite, especially after winning the Golden Globe, but she’s not a lock just yet.
Here’s the official Oscar nominations for Best Actress:
Cate Blanchett — Blue Jasmine
Judi Dench — Philomena
Meryl Streep — August: Osage County
Amy Adams — American Hustle
Sandra Bullock — Gravity
