Oscars 2014 Best Actor NomineesGetty

Awards season is in full form and the race to the Oscars is on!

Bruce Dern, Leonardo DiCaprio, Matthew McConaughey, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Christian Bale all turned in phenomenal performances this year and earned well deserved nominations, but only one will go home with the Best Actor statuette. Matthew McConaughey won Best Actor at the Golden Globe, Critics' Choice, and SAG Awards, putting him as the front-runner in this year's race, though it's anyone's guess as to which lucky actor will take home the coveted Oscar come March.

With over a month until the Oscars ceremony, there's plenty of time to get to know the nominees just a little bit better. Click through the slideshow below for some quick info about the actors and their Oscar-nominated roles!
