LOS ANGELES (AP) - The 86th annual Academy Award nominations were announced in Beverly Hills, Calif., by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Among the nominated films announced Thursday morning are `Gravity' and `American Hustle' which lead Academy Award contenders with 10 nominations each including nods for best picture.

Also nominated for best picture: "12 Years a Slave," "Captain Phillips," "Dallas Buyers Club," "Her," "Nebraska,"  "Philomena," and "The Wolf of Wall Street." 

The most notable omission by the academy was Tom Hanks, whose lead performance in "Captain Phillips" was widely considered a shoo-in. Robert Redford, expected by many to be nominated for the shipwreck drama "All Is Lost," also missed out on a best actor nod. Redford has never won an acting Oscar.

The best actor nominees are Chiwetel Ejiofor ("12 Years a Slave"), Bruce Dern ("Nebraska"), Leonardo DiCaprio ("The Wolf of Wall Street"), Matthew McConaughey ("Dallas Buyers Club") and Christian Bale ("American Hustle")

Disney's making-of "Mary Poppins" tale "Saving Mr. Banks" also failed to land either a best picture nomination or a best actress nod for Emma Thompson.

The best actress nominees are Amy Adams ("American Hustle"), Cate Blanchett ("Blue Jasmine"), Sandra Bullock ("Gravity"), Judi Dench ("Philomena") and Meryl Streep ("August: Osage County").

The 86th annual Academy Awards will take place March 2, with Ellen DeGeneres hosting for the second time.
