The Oscar nominations for this year have been announced, which means that Awards Season is in full swing. Although there were surprising snubs for Jennifer Aniston for her make-up free turn in Cake and Jake Gyllennhaal didn’t get recognized for his major weight loss in Nightcrawler and the upcoming Selma film was entirely left out. Still plenty of talent was recognized and the nominees in the top categories, with and without plastic surgery include:
Performance by an actor in a leading role
Steve Carell in Foxcatcher
52-year old Steve Carell has been showing off his serious side lately. His first Oscar nomination comes with the help of prosthetics to make his nose appear larger, rather than plastic surgery to make his nose smaller, as is traditional in Hollywood.
Bradley Cooper in American Sniper
40-year old Bradley Cooper shot to fame in The Hangover but since then has gotten serious about acting, which has paid off with his third acting nomination Oscar. Despite being a good looking guy, Bradley looks to be all natural.
Benedict Cumberbatch in The Imitation Game
38-year old Benedict Cumberbatch could never go under the knife or his legions of female fans would complain. His unusual appearance has served his acting skills well as he has been nominated for his first Oscar.
Michael Keaton in Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)
63-year old Michael Keaton has made a triumphant return to taking center stage but doesn’t appear to have had plastic surgery in the years between Batman and Birdman. Although there was a brief period where it looked as though he might have tried fillers and Botox to appear a little younger and fuller in the face.
Eddie Redmayne in The Theory of Everything
33-year old Eddie Redmayne is usually known as handsome man and based on his relative youth and natural freckles, looks to be aging naturally—at least thus far.
Performance by an actor in a supporting role
Robert Duvall in The Judge
84-year old Oscar winner Robert Duvall is a Hollywood living legend that has been nominated for his 7th Academy Award. Robert began losing his hair early in his career and opted not to have a restoration or other plastic surgery procedure.
Ethan Hawke in Boyhood
44-year old Ethan Hawke was once a ’90s heartthrob. His career is filled with hits and misses and he appears to have missed out on plastic surgery. This year marks his 4th Oscar nomination.
Edward Norton in Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)
45-year old Edward Norton tends to frequently go unnoticed in films but his turn in Birdman as a conceited stage actor has landed him his 3rd Oscar nomination. His ability to disappear into any role does not include having plastic surgery in his private life.
Mark Ruffalo in Foxcatcher
47-year old Mark Ruffalo is on his second Oscar nomination. The Avengers actor was previously nominated for his turn in the 2011 flick The Kids Are All Right. Mark does not appear to have been under the knife in the years between his Oscars nominations.
J.K. Simmons in Whiplash
60-year old J.K. Simmons tends be best known for his comedic roles as the guy with the shockingly deep voice. This is his first Oscar nomination, coming on the heels of his Golden Globe win. Although he could use a little Botox between his brows to help decrease his wrinkle, he appears to have great skin and be aging naturally.
Performance by an actress in a leading role
Marion Cotillard in Two Days, One Night
39-year old Marion Cotillard already has one Oscar under her belt and is now nominated for her second. Make Me Heal suspects it is her use of French cosmetics and skincare products, rather than plastic surgery that keeps her looking fresh-faced.
Felicity Jones in The Theory of Everything
31-year old Felicity Jones still looks to be relying on youth to appear young and fresh faced, rather than any plastic surgery although she will likely have facials and possible laser treatments before the big night.
Julianne Moore in Still Alice
54-year old Julianne Moore looks to be maintaining her anti plastic surgery stance as she is nominated for her 4th Oscar. In the past, Julianne has said, “My feeling is live and let live. Some of those procedures that make you look younger, I don’t know that they really made anybody look younger. I think most of the time they make you look like you’ve had something done to your face.”
Rosamund Pike in Gone Girl
35-year old Rosamund Pike looks to be aging naturally and taking good care of her skin, possibly with heavy duty anti aging products and regular laser treatments to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles.
Reese Witherspoon in Wild
38-year old Reese Witherspoon had a rough year after a DUI and a consequential loss in popularity but seems to be rebounding nicely, without plastic surgery. As a former child actress, it would not be surprising that Reese had a nose job in the past or uses Botox now, although she has never admitted to having any work done.
Performance by an actress in a supporting role
Patricia Arquette in Boyhood
46-year old Patricia Arquette is on her first Oscar nom and is rumored to have had Botox in the past, after displaying a shiny and wrinkle-free appearance at a past event.
Laura Dern in Wild
The daughter of Oscar nominee Bruce Dern, Laura Dern is following in the family tradition and racking up awards without plastic surgery.
Keira Knightley in The Imitation Game
29-year old Keira Knightley is pretty outspoken about her famously thin frame and lack of curves. However, despite teasing about breast implants, Keira looks to be all natural thus far.
Emma Stone in Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)
26-year old Emma Stone has perfected her usual deadpan delivery as a sarcastic young lady enough to get an Oscar nom and appears to rely more on hairstyles and makeup than plastic surgery to get noticed in Hollywood.
Meryl Streep in Into the Woods
65-year old Meryl Streep is so talented that she tends to get nominated for an Oscar in any role she takes on. As a witch, Meryl used makeup rather than plastic surgery but in the past has been rumored to have had facelifts over the years so that she stays just young enough to continue to get work.
