And the Oscar goes to! Jennifer Lawrence, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Julia Roberts top list of Oscar nominees

Awards season is in full swing and now comes the big ones - the Oscar nominations. Chris Hemsworth announced which actors, directors and films are to be honored at this year’s awards ceremony. Stars and award-winners Jennifer Lawrence, Leonardo DiCaprio and Julia Roberts are all up for awards this year, but who will the Oscar go to?

The Academy has finally spoken! Early Thursday, Thor actor Chris Hemsworth announced which stars and films are up for awards this year. Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences president Cheryl Boone Isaacs joined him for the announcement at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Los Angeles.

After the Golden Globe awards ceremony this past week, it comes as no surprise that Jennifer Lawrence, who beat out Hollywood alum Julia Roberts for Best Supporting Actress, has been nominated. She is also up for the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in the award-winning film American Hustle.

The ever-fabulous Julia Roberts will once again be battling for the Best Supporting Actress award for her performance alongside Meryl Streep in August: Osage County.

Heartthrob Leonardo DiCaprio is hoping to make a clean sweep of the Best Actor category this year. After winning the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a musical or comedy, he has been nominated for the Best Actor Oscar for his role in The Wolf of Wall Street.

Since the Oscar categories are different from the Golden Globes, Leo is in for some steep competition. Christian Bale for American Hustle, Matthew McConaughey for Dallas Buyers Club, and Chiwetel Ejiofor for 12 Years a Slave have all been nominated for the Best Actor Oscar.

So, who will the Oscar go to? The awards show will be broadcast live from Hollywood’s Dolby Theater on Sunday March 2, and will air on ABC at 7 p.m.

This year’s ceremony is sure to be entertaining, with the hilarious Ellen DeGeneres hosting. Producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron said in a statement, “There will be no shortage of comedy with Ellen DeGeneres as our host. There may also be a few musical surprises along the way.”​
