The nominees for best actress are Julianne Moore (Still Alice), Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl), Annette Bening (The Face of Love), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Belle), and Reese Witherspoon (Wild).
For outstanding feature film, the nominees are Belle, Still Alice, Gone Girl and Wild.
The award ceremony, which will be held in Beverly Hills on Dec. 14, will also pay tribute to entrepreneur Baroness Kimberly Moore and to Joan Rivers (Fashion Police), also a WIN Awards 2014 nominee.

Rosamund Pike and partner Robie Uniacke have welcomed their second son together, Pike’s rep exclusively confirms to E! News.
The British actress gave birth at home on Dec. 2. Their baby boy joins big brother Solo, 2 1/2, in the family fold.
E! News was also first to report back in June that Pike and her mathematician beau of close to five years were expecting again. By the time Gone Girl hit theaters in October, the star was elegantly flaunting a growing bump on the red carpet as she basked in the pre-award season buzz for her twisted-to-a-tee performance as Ben Affleck’s missing wife Amy.
With Golden Globe and SAG Award nominations set to be announced next week, so far Pike has scored a Satellite Award nom for Best Actress, and Gone Girl was just named one of the year’s 10 best films by the National Board of Review—always a good sign heading into the thick of awards season!
Pike is also due to be honored at the 2015 Palm Springs Film Festival with the Breakthrough Performance Award.
Talking about her then-family of three to Vogue in 2012, she said, “It is interesting to break all the rules. I’m not married, I have a baby, and it feels infinitely more right.”
Seems as though she’s doing quite a lot of things right these days. Congratulations to the new family of four!

The UK’s Arrow Films have picked up Voltage Pictures’ upcoming thriller Return to Sender, starring Rosamund Pike, Shiloh Fernandez and Nick Nolte.
It builds on Arrow’s relationship with Voltage, having previously picked up Nailed/Politics of Love and Good Kill for UK distribution.
The deal with negotiated by Arrow acquisitions director Tom Stewart and Voltage’s Elisabeth Costa de Beauregard.
Pike, who most recently starred in David Fincher mystery Gone Girl, stars as a small town nurse who gets attacked during a home invasion by a mysterious criminal (Fernandez).
Following his arrest, she starts to regularly visit him in jail and befriends him, against her father’s (Nolte) advice. After his release, she decides to turn the tables on him and puts a diabolical plan in motion to get revenge on her assailant.
Return to Sender is directed by Fouad Mikati (Operation: Endgame)
Arrow plans to release the film in 2015.
Rosamund Pike, the British blonde beauty whose performance in David Fincher’s Gone Girl has blown away critics and moviegoers alike, will receive this year’s Breakthrough Performance Award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival’s 26th annual PSIFF Awards Gala on Jan. 3. The fest will run Jan. 2-12.
The 35-year-old is also known for her work in Die Another Day (2002), Pride & Prejudice (2005), An Education (2009) and Made in Dagenham (2010).
Previous recipients of PSIFF’s Breakthrough Performance Award include Lupita Nyong’o (2014, for 12 Years a Slave), Carey Mulligan (2010, for An Education), Marion Cotillard (2008, for La Vie En Rose), Jennifer Hudson (2007, for Dreamgirls) and Felicity Huffman (2006, for Transamerica). All of the aforementioned went on to receive Oscar noms for those same performances — and Nyong’o, Cotillard and Hudson won.
“Rosamund Pike perfectly taps into Gillian Flynn’s complex character from the novel Gone Girl, bringing to life the privileged, manipulative and calculating Amy Dunne,” PSIFF chairman Harold Matzner said in a statement. “It’s hard to imagine anyone else in the role.”
PSIFF previously announced that The Theory of Everything’s lead actor Eddie Redmayne and Still Alice’s lead actress Julianne Moore will receive this year’s Desert Palm Achievement awards and that Whiplash’s supporting actor J.K. Simmons will receive this year’s Spotlight Award.
Sources tell Variety that “Gone Girl” actress Rosamund Pike is in early talks to star in Fox 2000 and Chernin Entertainment’s adaptation of “The Mountain Between Us” opposite Charlie Hunnam.
Hany Abu-Assad (“Paradise Now”) will direct the survival love story, which is based on Charles Martin’s novel about two people who survive a plane crash in the mountains.
J. Mills Goodloe and Scott Frank wrote the script.
Peter Chernin, Jenno Topping and David Reading are producing the film, which will shoot at the end of 2015.
The late start works for both Hunnam and Pike as Hunnam will begin film “Knights of the Round Table” in early 2015 while Pike is expecting a child at the beginning of the year.
Pike is coming off rave reviews for her role as Amy Dunne in Fox and David Fincher’s adaptation of “Gone Girl,” which has grossed a stellar $152 million domestically. She can be seen next in the indie drama “Return to Sender.”
Hunnam, who recently wrapped production on Guillermo del Toro’s “Crimson Peak,” is the star of FX’s “Sons of Anarchy.”
Pike is repped by CAA, Magnolia Entertainment and United Agents.
