Ah, to be “Beautiful” and in “Love.” “Shakespeare in Love” led the way with 13 Oscar nominations, and Roberto Benigni didn’t do too shabbily, either, snagging five nods for his “Life Is Beautiful.” Steven Spielberg’s “Saving Private Ryan” rounded up 11 mentions. But there are only so many nominations to go around, and many Oscar hopefuls were left without one: Jim Carrey, who failed to get a Best Actor nod from the Academy despite his Golden Globe for “The Truman Show,” Bill Murray, whose pre-Oscar buzz for his supporting role in “Rushmore” fell on deaf ears with the people that mattered, and the “Saving Private Ryan” supporting grunts — Tom Sizemore, Jeremy Davies, Giovanni Ribisi, et. al., who apparently canceled each other out.

Here’s a complete list of nominees for the 71st Academy Awards. Winners will be announced during the Oscar ceremony on Sunday, March 21. (For in-depth Oscar coverage, check out our Oscars Special page.)
