Chiwetel Ejiofor was nominated for Best Actor Oscar today. Cate Blanchett was nominated for Best Actress Oscar today. Here they are, posing together, at the AACTA Awards on the weekend. Will they be doing the same on March 2nd with their trophies in hand?

Oh I hope so.

The two favourites, Leonardo DiCaprio and Matthew McConaughey, can kiss all the babies and shake all the hands they want to, but I hope in the end it’s Chiwetel.

Chiwetel’s sister, Zain Asher, is a reporter on CNN. She was asked this morning about her brother’s nomination. Here’s her reaction. He’s the one.
