Oscar Nominations: A Look Back On The Nominees

The Oscar nominations are in!

The Oscar nominations are here! There were some surprises -- a nod for French actress Marion Cotillard -- and some clear front runners -- 'Grand Budapest Hotel' and 'Birdman' both came away with nine nods each. But we'll have to wait until February 22 to find out who will come out with a golden man. Until then, check out the clips below and revisit some of Larry's favorite interviews with nominees and their Hollywood colleagues discussing their work.

Marion Cotillard will be on 'Larry King Now' this Monday, Jan. 21., but catch a preview below where she discusses the Oscar buzz around her role in the Belgian film 'Two Days, One Night':

Steve Carell (nominated for best supporting actor for 'Foxcatcher') on how he became a bigger star between Anchorman and Anchorman 2

Jason Schwartzman on Wes Anderson (nominated for best director for 'Grand Budapest Hotel')

David Arquette on his sister, Patricia Arquette (nominated for best supporting actress in 'Boyhood')

Matthew McConaughey on Richard Linklater, who cast him in 'Dazed and Confused' and is now nominated as best director for 'Boyhood'

Pretty much every actress we've had on Larry King Now -- from Oscar winners like Hilary Swank and Shirley MacLaine to young starlets like Abigail Breslin -- responds with one word -- "Meryl" -- when asked with which actress she'd love to work. Meryl Streep is nominated for best supporting actress for her role as the Witch in 'Into the Woods'.
