Back off Rookies, 2014 is the Year of Oscar Albums

Finally, the time has come: The Academy Award nominees were announced this morning, and well, they look a lot like the nominees from last year...and the year before...and the year before that. In the Best Actor and Best Actress categories, the only new names are Chiwetel Ejiofor from 12 Years a Slave and Matthew McConaughey for Dallas Buyers Club. Surprisingly, a few new names snuck into the Supporting Actress and Supporting Actor categories, even though historically those awards have been given to Oscar veterans: Lupita Nyong’o, June Squibb, Sally Hawkins, Michael Fassbender, Jared Leto and Barkhad Abdi are all first time nominees. So in this game of hardened, award-show veterans, who has the most awards? Who will take all the awards at the Oscars? Who will win this game of thrones? (Sorry, got a little carried away there.)
