The Oscar nominations came out this morning and there aren’t many surprises except for the fact that instead of 5 Best Pictures to chose from, the category has now been expanded to 10 flicks! Were movies THAT GOOD this year that they could not bring it down to 5?! lol
Avatar and The Hurt Locker lead the Academy Awards with nine nominations each — including best picture and best director for James Cameron and ex-wife Kathryn Bigelow. Both films are also among the 10 nominees in the best picture category, along with The Blind Side,Inglorious Basterds, District 9, Precious, A Serious Man, Up, Up in the Air & An Education.
Sandra Bullock, Jeff Bridges, Christoph Waltz and Mo’Nique — who have dominated the awards season so far — all received nominations.
The 82nd Annual Academy Awards will be presented March 7th at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles, hosted by Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin.
