And the Oscar Award Nominees are Out!

Among the stars nominated are Julia Roberts, Amy Adams, and Michael Fassbender.

The Oscar Awards are just two months away!

Actress Julia Roberts,who took home the Best Actress trophy in 2001 for her role in Erin Brockovich, is overjoyed at receiving a Best Supporting Actress nod for her portrayal of a strong-willed woman who goes back to her childhood home and her dysfunctional mother when a crisis brings her family back together in August: Osage County.

The brunette beauty told "This was certainly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. And the recognition from it is an absolutely thrilling bonus. I simply could not be more excited right now."

American Hustle star Amy Adams, who is nominated for Best Actress, echoed Julia's sentiment.

She said: "I'm very honored to be nominated alongside such inspiring actresses. Congratulations to the cast and crew of American Hustle and Her, two films that I'm incredibly proud to be a part of."

The 39-year-old star faces stiff competition from three-time Oscar winner and Julia's co-star Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett for Blue Jasmine, Sandra Bullock for Gravity and Dame Judi Dench for Philomena.

The British star, 79, said: "This is just the loveliest news. I'm so happy for everybody involved, and so proud to have been part of the wonderful experience that Philomena has been."

Elsewhere, Irish star Michael Fassbender, 36, is thrilled to have been recognized for his work in 12 Years a Slave.

He said: "I'm really chuffed with the Oscar nomination especially being recognized alongside such great actors. It's a real honour."

Director Alfonso Cuaron, whose movie Gravity racked up 10 nominations, admitted he is especially happy for Sandra.

The Mexican movie-maker said: "These nominations are not just about single achievements, but rather the collective effort of hundreds of dedicated artists who made this dream a reality... I am particularly moved by Sandy's nomination. She is the heartbeat of our film. She immersed herself in the part. And I thank her for her grace, her trust and her dedication to finding the truth of this character."
