The other nominees were Amy Adams for "American Hustle," Sandra Bullock for "Gravity," Meryl Streep for "August: Osage County," and Judi Dench for "Philomena."

And, as predicted, the Best Actress Oscar winner is Cate Blanchett.

All the Moviefone editors chose Blanchett to win, so it's not really a surprise. Let's all revel in this wonderful actress' victory.
