Hollywood awaits Oscars nominations

DHAKA: The Oscar nominations will be announced later, with ‘12 Years a Slave’, ‘Gravity’ and ‘American Hustle’ all expected to be in the running for best picture.

But the rest of the shortlist is up for grabs, amidst one of the most competitive fields in years, reports the BBC.

Experts predict a full slate of 10 nominees, with Dallas Buyers Club and Captain Phillips among frontrunners.

Actor Chris Hemsworth and Oscars chief Cheryl Boone Isaacs will list nominees at 13:38 GMT.

‘12 Years a Slave’, Steve McQueen’s hard-hitting historical drama, picked up the top honour at the Sunday’s Golden Globes, winning best film drama.

It is also the bookmakers’ favourite to win the Oscar for best picture, but David O Russell’s crime caper ‘American Hustle’ is rapidly closing in, after picking up three Globes, including best film in the comedy or musical category.

Its female stars Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence also picked up best actress and supporting actress prizes.
