With the 2014 Golden Globes behind us, awards season is in full swing. Today, January 16, the nominees for the 86th Annual Academy Awards, aka Oscars, were announced. Thor star Chris Hemsworth and Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs were on deck to reveal the highly-anticipated noms. Ellen DeGeneres is hosting on the big night, so expect lots of laughs.

All of the huge movies of the year scored major noms, and there were very few, if any, surprises in the slew of nominees this year.

Tune into Oscar Sunday on March 2, 2014, at 7 p.m. EST on ABC.
