Nominations for the 2014 Oscars (opens in new tab) were announced on Thursday and two of our best girls, Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts, were included. Was there ever any doubt?

Both nods honor their performances as mother and daughter in August: Osage County, a Weinstein Company film that speaks to family love (and distain). There's an all-star cast, but we only have eyes for Streep and Roberts, obvi.
