The Oscar nominations were announced on Jan. 16. The event was held before dawn, as always, and by the time the sun was up, it was clear that the 86th annual Academy Awards would be light on Jewish winners.

Not counting the producers included in the Best Picture nominees, only five Jewish men are nominated for Academy Awards this year in the other seven major categories (four acting categories, Best Directing, Best Writing-Adapted Screenplay and Best Writing-Original Screenplay).
