Hollywood's leading men and women have come out in full force to thank the Academy for their Oscar nominations. Stars from Julianne Moore to Reese Witherspoon showed their appreciation online, by also thanking fans and their co-stars for their support.
Julianne, 54,sent an animated message on Twitter, which was retweeted almost 1,000 times within the hour.
"Thank u everyone for the congratulations! I am so happy I can barely breathe #makingmyselfdizzy #AcademyAwards," wrote Julianne to her 528,000 followers. The red-haired beauty was nominated for Best Actress for her role in Still Alice – the fifth time she has received an Oscar nomination.
Contending in the same category, Reese, 38, was acknowledged for her emotional performance in Wild, which tells the tale of Cheryl Strayed setting out on a tough through-trail, in a bid to get her life back on track.
Reese's co-star Laura Dern, who plays the actress' on-screen mum, was also nominated for Best Supporting Actress.
"So happy to celebrate 2 #Oscarnominations for #WILDmovie with my deeply beautiful & talented costar @lauradern!" Reese captioned a red-carpet snap of the pair.
Laura replied with: "My every day muse @RWitherspoon thank you for healing us while being in your art this year. Celebrating you and our Wild time!"
While the nominees from the Best Actor category were noticeably more quiet, as all but one have Twitter accounts, Steve Carell shared his reaction online by calling it an "honour" to be selected, while also sending love to his Foxcatcher co-stars Mark Ruffalo and Channing Tatum.
Mark, who was recognised in the Best Supporting Actor category, wrote: "Thanks to all you folks with so many congratulations tweets. Heart warming support. You are too damn good."
The 47-year-old also called Steve and Channing "the best" in another Twitter post, and addressed the fact that Channing hadn't been nominated by retweeting one user's message that read: "I don't understand how @channingtatum doesn't get nominated and @MarkRuffalo does.#channingtatum was in the movie twice as much. #Foxcatcher."
Patricia Arquette, who was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Boyhood, made no reference to her nomination but instead reached out to the film's director.
"Congrats to Richard Linklater for his DGA nomination for best director for #Boyhood!" she wrote. The blockbuster, which was a labour of love filmed over 12 years, was nominated in six categories in total including Best Picture.
