It’s been a busy and chaotic Oscar season this year, and AwardsLine has been covering it throughout. Click the image above to access the first of our galleries of exclusive nominee portraiture. The categories represented range from Supporting Actor and Actress to Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Costume Design. Mark Ruffalo (Spotlight), Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl) and Rooney Mara (Carol) represent in the Supporting categories, despite concerns that the latter two were lead performances. If Vikander won’t be repping the highbrow sci-fi flick Ex Machina, Visual Effects supervisor Andrew Whitehurst will, and deservedly so. Also stopping by the studio were Nick Hornby (Brooklyn), Tom McCarthy (also for Spotlight), Matt Damon (The Martian), Charlie Kaufman and Duke Johnson (Anomalisa), László Nemes (Son Of Saul), and more.
