Hollywood A-listers woke up extra early this morning, to watch actor Chris Pine and Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences President Cheryl Boone Isaacs announce Oscar nominees at 5:30 a.m. in Los Angeles.
While there were some expected names among the list of lauded actors, actresses, directors, producers and other film-friendly artists—including ones that we also heard at the Golden Globes on Sunday—there were a few surprises, and surprise snubs.
One thing's for sure: When it came to the lead actress and supporting actress categories, moms were the main attraction.
Out of the lead actress nominees, four out of the five women are mothers—Marion Cotillard, Julianne Moore, Rosamund Pike and Reese Witherspoon. Out of the supporting category, three of the five have kids at home—or one on the way: Patricia Arquette, Laura Dern, Keira Knightley and Meryl Streep.
A few surprises—or snubs—included the omission of women like "Selma" director Ava DuVernay, "Unbroken" director Angelina Jolie and Golden Globe winner for lead actress Amy Adams.
