See How the Oscar Nominees Reacted on Twitter
The announcement brought giddy tweets from Julianne, Reese, and more Academy Award hopefuls.
The official list of Academy Award contenders is in, and for the celebs who made the cut, it really is an honour just to be nominated. At least, until someone else’s name gets called on 22 February.
Naturally, Hollywood’s finest took to Twitter to gush about their excitement.
Julianne Moore, a Best Actress nominee for ‘Still Alice’, has been nominated four times before, but clearly the thrill hasn’t worn off.

Even some who got snubbed were in good spirits. ‘Selma’ director Ava DuVernay celebrated the film’s nominations with an homage to the man who inspired it.
Happy Birthday, Dr. King. An Oscar gift for you. To SELMA cast + crew led by our miracle David Oyelowo! To Common + Legend! Kudos! March on!

And although ‘The Lego Movie’ shockingly didn’t get a nod for Best Animated Feature, writer-director Philip Lord consoled himself:
