BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (CBSDC/AP) — The con-artist comedy “American Hustle” and the 3-D space odyssey “Gravity” lead the Academy Awards with 10 nominations each, including nods for best picture.

“12 Years a Slave” narrowly trailed with a total of nine nominations.

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.
