And the Oscar WON'T go to...
Looks like it's back to daytime television for Oprah Winfrey.
The 59-year-old woke up to the bad news on Thursday morning that her performance in The Butler had been overlooked for an Academy Award nomination; the film also missed out on a nomination for Best Picture.
As the names of half of Hollywood were read out very early in Los Angeles, California, more than a few big names were left off the list.
But the one-woman empire is in good company, with industry legends Tom Hanks and Robert Redford also failing to get any love from the Academy this year, with both men missing out on the Best Actor category.
Veteran actor Hanks seemed a shoo-in, considering he led two films this year — Captain Phillips and Saving Mr Banks. He and co-star Emma Thompson can perhaps commiserate with each oter over cocktails, as the actress also failed to get any Oscar love.
The man who has given 54 years of his life to Hollywood — not to mention one of its most prestigious film festivals, Sundance — also missed out on a chance at the gold.
Redford was noticeably absent from the list for his role in All Is Lost as an unnamed sailor lost on a solo voyage. The star has never taken home an Oscar for his acting.
Another shock was that the late James Gandolfini — whose film Enough Said was released posthumously — was not given a nod.
His overlooking denies the star his last chance to be recognised by the Academy, having passed away last year.
And it is not just the veterans of the game who are missing out.
Many thought English actor Idris Elba might have found himself taking to the Academy's stage for his film Mandela: A Long Walk To Freedom, but it too was not to be.
Some of the industry's directorial greats were also snubbed.
Not in the running for Best Director is Woody Allen for his film Blue Jasmine, brothers Joel and Ethan Coen, who jointly directed Inside Llewyn Davis, and Spike Jonze for his futuristic offering Her — leading actor in Her Joaquin Phoenix also did not make the list. This then impacted on the Best Picture category, with both Blue Jasmine and Inside Llewyn Davis failing to make the cut.
