Whether it was the role of a heel-kicking news boy or an overenthusiastic camp counselor, all of this year's Oscar nominees got their start somewhere.
Their lucky breaks came long before the celebrated roles that Leonardo DiCaprio, Sandra Bullock and the rest of the nominated actors are known for today. These big and small screen gigs pushed 2014's Oscar contenders forward from random headshot to household name.

The recent Las Vegas wedding between Clint Eastwood's daughter Francesca and Jonah Hill's brother Jordan Feldstein appears to have been a big mistake.
"It was a goof off," a family source tells PEOPLE, adding that the marriage is in the process of being annulled.
When contacted for comment, Eastwood's manager said he had no information on the annulment.
The couple received a marriage license from Clark County, Nev., on Nov. 17, and wed that same weekend.

Clint Eastwood and Jonah Hill are now in-laws – the Oscar winner's daughter, Francesca, married Hill's brother Jordan Feldstein in Las Vegas last weekend.
PEOPLE has confirmed that Clark County, Nev., issued a marriage license to Eastwood, 20, and Feldstein, who's Maroon 5's music manager, on Nov. 17.
Eastwood, whose mother is actress Frances Fisher, was most recently seen in stepmom Dina Eastwood's reality series Mrs. Eastwood & Company – which chronicled her relationship with then-boyfriend photographer Tyler Shield – and was the 2013 Miss Golden Globe.

For the Comedy Central roast of James Franco, the writer/actor/director/producer was braced for tasteless jokes at his expense. What he didn't know was that all the roasters were fair game, too.
"I've never watched one of these roasts. I chose not to research this so I had no idea that they were going to be roasting each other [too]. I thought I'd be sitting here for two hours bearing the brunt of it so it was a huge relief," Franco said. "I had a great time. Everybody was awesome, solid."
Before it airs Monday on Comedy Central (10 p.m. ET), we've selected some of the best zingers and put-downs to add some sizzle to your Labor Day.

Ben Affleck plans to live on $1.50 a day – and he wants you to join him.
While the Oscar winner could certainly afford much more, Affleck is joining other celebrities to shine a light on poverty through the Global Poverty Project's Live Below the Line campaign. That figure represents the extreme poverty line in the U.S. as estimated by the World Bank.
Affleck Tweeted of his efforts: "1.4 billion people live on less the $1.50/day. I'm joining Live #BelowTheLine on behalf of @easterncongo. Will you?" He plans to feed himself on $1.50 for one day, following in the footsteps of other celebrities who have joined the cause to raise awareness of issues of inequality and poverty around the world.

Jonah Hill is one guy who definitely agrees with PEOPLE's choice of Channing Tatum as the Sexiest Man Alive!
On Wednesday, Hill Tweeted a photo of himself (practically) licking the cover of PEOPLE, which features a smoldering Tatum showing off his hot body in a white tank top. "@channingtatum you've always been the sexiest man alive to me! (Congrats pal!)," Hill wrote along with the pic.
And Hill would know just how hot Tatum is. The friends costarred in the 2012 remake of 21 Jump Street, in which they play cops who go undercover as high school students to try to bust a drug ring.

Have you voted? Leonardo DiCaprio wants to know.
With Election Day upon us, stars are flooding the Internet in an effort to get out the vote – urging all U.S. citizens to make their voices heard, regardless of whom or what they support.
Chief among the appeals is a new video from Vote4Stuff, a nonpartisan campaign led by DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire – who are joined by Jonah Hill, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Zac Efron, Benicio Del Toro and Selena Gomez, among others, in an amusing montage of civic pride (with a few amusing insults thrown in for good measure).
