Divided loyalties
Some actors may feel particularly torn at this year’s Academy Awards, as they have strong connections with many nominees.
Curiosities
  • Alfonso Cuarón and Payne directed segments of “Paris je t’aime” and co-produced “The Assassination of Richard Nixon.”
  • Michael Fassbender has worked in all three of McQueen’s feature films.
  • Only Abdi has never worked with any other nominees in the acting or directing categories.
  • Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence have worked together twice and were Oscar nominees both times. Their third film together, “Serena,” is scheduled to be released this year.
  • Among these nominees, Lupita Nyong’o has worked only with her colleagues on “12 Years a Slave.”
