It's almost Oscar time! The 2016 Academy Awards are right around the corner (February 28, to be exact), and while we can't wait to see the big show, we're not the only ones that are excited. The nominations for this year's Oscars were announced this morning, and it's safe to say those up for an award are more than a little amped.

From first-time nominees like Sam Smith (above, nominated for best song) and Brie Larson to Academy vets like Jessica Chastain and Steve Carell to friends of nominees sharing the love, countless stars took to social media to show their excitement. Keep reading to see them all.

This is my Oscar Nomination face. Unreal. Freaking out. Thank you Academy - Thank You Thank You Thank You
