And the Nominees Are…The 87th Annual Academy Awards! (FULL LIST!)



Hollywood’s biggest night is almost here and its most stressful morning for those in the motion picture industry has arrived. It’s the Academy Award Nominations.

Directors Alfonso Cuarón and J.J. Abrams are on hand to announce the first batch of categories, with Chris Pine and Cheryl Boone tapping in for the second round and, arguably, the biggest categories.

Award-winning stage and screen actor Neil Patrick Harris will host the ceremony for the first time. “It is truly an honor and a thrill to be asked to host this year’s Academy Awards. I grew up watching the and was always in such awe of some of the greats who hosted the show,” said Harris. Show Craig Zadan and Neil Meron are on hand for their third consecutive show. The last two have seen a spike in ratings, with last year’s telecast, hosted by Ellen DeGeneres, pulling in more than 45 million viewers – the biggest showing since 2000.

The Academy gave Honorary Awards to Jean-Claude Carrière, Hayao Miyazaki, and Maureen O’Hara, as well as a Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award to Harry Belafonte, back in November of 2014.
