Before the crack of dawn in Los Angeles this morning, the entertainment press corps headed to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Beverly Hills for the nominations announcement of the 86th Annual Academy Awards, presented by actor Chris Hemsworth and Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs.

Unlike the recent Golden Globes, which in effect, doubles the number of honorees with both dramatic and comedy/musical categories, the Oscars doesn't separate nominees by genre, so inevitably good pictures and performances are left out.

A list of nominees follows. Who do you think was left out? What surprised you?

The Oscars will be televised live on ABC on March 2 at 7 pm ET/4 pm PT.
