Oscar Watching: All About That Snub

Best Actress in a Leading Role

Julianne Moore will walk away with this – and with no real competition. But Marion Cotillard is finally back, and Reese Witherspoon gives one of her best performances. Felicity Jones and Rosamund Pike can call themselves Oscar nominees and should see their careers take off.

1. Julianne Moore for Still Alice

2. Felicity Jones for The Theory of Everything

3. Reese Witherspoon for Wild

4. Rosamund Pike for Gone Girl

5. Marion Cotillard for Two Days, One Night

Best Actor in a Leading Role

Steve Carell and Bradley Cooper – who netted his third consecutive nomination – were the nomination-morning surprises. Benedict Cumberbatch and Michael Keaton lead films that look to surprise for the picture win, but Eddie Redmayne gives a transformative performance that already won a Golden Globe and could take prizes from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA), SAG, and yes, Oscar.

1. Eddie Redmayne for The Theory of Everything

2. Michael Keaton for Birdman

3. Benedict Cumberbatch for The Imitation Game

4. Bradley Cooper for American Sniper

5. Steve Carell for Foxcatcher
