The race is officially on for the 87th Annual Academy Awards. Former As the World Turns star Julianne Moore, who just won the Golden Globe, was nominated for her role in Still Alice.

 Selma scored a Best Drama nomination, but the Midas touch of Oprah wasn’t enough to earn Ava DuVernay a Best Director nomination. The film's actors were also snubbed. Controversy surrounding President Lydon Johnson's portrayal in movie could have hurt it among Academy voters, Hollywood insiders speculate.

Jennifer Aniston was also shut out. The daughter of Days of Our Lives star John Aniston was considered a shoo-in for her gritty turn in Cake.

The Grand Budapest Hotel and Birdman lead this year's Oscar race with nine nominations each. The Imitation Game came in a close third with eight nominations. The three movies will compete against American Sniper, Boyhood, Selma, The Theory of Everything and Whiplash for the night's biggest award.
