Page 2 - Oscars 2014: Ellen DeGeneres Is Playfully Hilarious In Tamed Opening Monologue

Page 2 of 212

After the funny and arguably perfectly-lengthed way to kick-off the 86th Academy-Awards it is now time for Hollywood's best and the expected 1 billion people watching, to see who will victorious at tonight's ceremony.

Out of all the 24 categories, the Best Actor award is gaining a lot of attention due the tremendously talented nominee's in their equally as impressive films.

But one question which will be answered is, will Leonardo DiCpario win his first Oscar?

With a career defining performance in 'Martin Scorsese's 'The Wolf of Wall Street', many believe he will not go home empty handed. DiCaprio portrays the real life Jordan Belfort, a power hungry criminal, who defrauded investors and the stock market for millions of dollars during the 90s.

Since Mr. Belfort also developed quite a hard and extravagate partying life style, which included a very intense drug addiction, DiCaprio was forced to act as ridiculous and scandalous as possible, resulting into some of the most hilarious scenes in any movie this year.

The 39 year-old, who was nominated for his first Oscar twenty years ago for Best Supporting Actor in 1993's 'What's Eating Gilbert Grape', has already won a Golden Globe for 'Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy,' last month (Feb).

Another intriguing aspect of the Oscars, that has gripped the attention of movie lovers, is the battle for Best Supporting Actress. Although there are five nominee's in the category, it is pretty certain only two actresses will be competing for the award, they are Jennifer Lawrence (American Hustle) and Lupita Nyong'o (12 Years A Slave).

Lawrence, who plays conman Irving Rosenfeld's emotionally unstable wife Rosalyn in David O.Russell's 1970's crime thriller, has already won a 'Golden Globe' and BAFTA for Best Supporting Actress earlier this year.

Lupita Nyong'o received an Oscar nod for playing an African American slave in Steve McQueen's extremely raw, yet powerful historical-drama '12 Years A Slave', this is her first ever nomination.
