Remember how great last year was? Sigh. Image: WENN

Awards season is in full swing and Hollywood’s biggest night — Oscar night — is fast approaching. This morning, directors J.J. Abrams and Alfonso Cuarón joined Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs and actor Chris Pine to announce this year’s nominees. There are few surprises here with favorites like Birdman and The Imitation Game getting quite a few nods, as they have all awards season long. But what was a surprise was the lack of diversity all around. No female directors were nominated, no actors of color. The hashtag #OscarsSoWhite is already trending. Should make for an interesting live tweet during the show.

Below, the list of this year’s nominees. Find out who takes home the prize in every category when the ceremonies air on ABC, February 22 at 7 p.m. Eastern/4 p.m. Pacific.
