Anticipation builds for the Academy Awards nomination announcements in a Siouxland community

Posted:

NORFOLK, Neb. (KTIV/US92) - The nominations for the 2014 Academy Awards will be announced Thursday and one Siouxland community will be watching with particular interest.

Local cast, crew and fans of the film "Nebraska" will be celebrating the Academy Award nomination announcements on Thursday.

Event organizers say they are hosting a viewing party and breakfast for the nominations in Norfolk.

Organizers say attendees will be treated to a complimentary breakfast and film prizes will be awarded as well.

Director Alexander Payne's film was shot in northeast Nebraska last winter and utilized local residents for some of the film's cast and crew.

"Nebraska" was shut out at this past weekend's Golden Globe award ceremony despite five nominations.

The party to see how many Oscar nods the film gets will start at the Sandbar and Grill in Norfolk starting at 6:30 a.m. Thursday.
