Celebrities tweet their thoughts about the official list of nominees

After months of rumors, speculation and anticipation, the nominees for the 2014 Academy Awards were officially announced this morning. Reactions to the news from celebrities and the public alike was swift, abundant and passionate.

Although there was a strong show of support for nominees, in a year of tight competition in some (but not all) of the biggest categories, there was unsurprisingly no scarcity of backlash about movies and actors getting 'snubbed.' Tom Hanks, The Butler, James Gandolfini, and Saving Mr. Banks were some of the most notable actors/works that failed to get a nomination, to the disappointment of many. Wolf of Wall Street, American Hustle and Dallas Buyers Club were some of the most prevalent films across categories.

With the quantity of big names involved in this year's films, it's hard to say who the front runners are for the 2014 awards, which will air March 2, but as evident by the response to the nominations, it will certainly be a highly anticipated event.
