In a surprising twist, make that a number of twists, the Oscar nominations were announced Thursday morning. Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs and actor Chris Hemsworth made the announcements at the AMPAS Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills.

Gravity” and “American Hustle” each received 10 nominations each. “12 Years a Slave” followed behind with nine nods. This stark film about slavery in the South has been leading during the awards season. All films were nominated for best picture and best director.

Last year the big Oscar nomination snub was Ben Affleck for best director in “Argo.” This year Paul Greengrass was snubbed for his directing in “Captain Phillips.” Other significant snubs have taken place in the acting categories.

Overlooked were Robert Redford in “All is Lost” (an early favorite in the season), Emma Thompson in “Saving Mr. Banks,” and Oprah Winfrey in “Lee Daniels’ ‘The Butler.’”

History could be made at the upcoming 86th Academy Awards. If Steve McQueen wins best director for “12 Years a Slave” he could become the first black filmmaker to win in this category. Jennifer Lawrence, 23, is nominated once again. This time it’s for a best supporting actress category. If she is to win on March 2, she’ll become the youngest actress in Academy history to have two Oscars.

Ellen DeGeneres returns to host the Oscar ceremonies on ABC at the Dolby Theatre live on Sunday, March 2 at 8 p.m. ET. Her last time as host was in 2007. Here is a complete list of the 2014 Oscar nominees in all categories.
