Tom Hanks and the Coen Brothers snubbed as 'Gravity' and 'Hustle' win big
Winner: "The Wolf of Wall Street"
Boy, it seems like those cat calls at the Academy screening of "The Wolf of Wall Street" from a member telling Martin Scorsese he should be ashamed of his hedonistic adaptation of a hedonistic book are way back in the rearview mirror. There was some fear that the Academy might be too fuddy-duddy to respond to such an epic, but respond they did, not only nominating DiCaprio in a crowded Best Actor field but finding room for Jonah Hill with so little precursor recognition for the actor.
