Oscars Headlines

FUN FACTS
FIRST-TIMERS: It's never too late for an Academy Award nomination. Just ask June Squibb, who is a first-time Oscar nominee for her supporting role in "Nebraska" at 84 years old. Other first-time acting nominees joining her this year are Chiwetel Ejiofor, Matthew McConaughey, Barkhad Abdi, Michael Fassbender, Jared Leto, Sally Hawkins and Lupita Nyong'o. RECORD BREAKERS: Meryl Streep extends her lead as the most nominated performer with her 18th nomination for "August: Osage County." Woody Allen adds to his record number of writing nominations with his 16th nod for "Blue Jasmine." ''The Wind Rises" filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki now has the most nods in the animated feature film category with three. TWICE AS NICE: "American Hustle" and "Her" producer Megan Ellison is the first woman and the fourth person to receive two best picture nods in the same year. She joins Francis Ford Coppola and Fred Roos, who were both nominated for "The Godfather: Part II" and "The Conversation" in 1974, and Scott Rudin, up for "The Social Network" and "True Grit" in 2010.
