The results of the Oscar nominations are in – and it’s good news for ELLE's cover stars.

Benedict Cumberbatch and Eddie Redmayne have both been nominated for Best Actor (for The Imitation Game and The Theory of Everything respectively), while Keira Knightley has also been nominated for her role in The Imitation Game in the category of Best Supporting Actress.

The results are certainly not surprising, considering the trio’s BAFTA nominations success (read about it here).
