Oscar Nominations

     The nominations for the 83rd Annual Academy Awards aka the Oscars were announced today at 7:30am. The list didn't offer too much as far as surprises go. The omission of Christopher Nolan as Best Director was yet another stub to the mainstream favorite. Taking his place is Joel and Ethan Coen with their latest film, "True Grit."Andrew Garfield also didn't receive the Best Supporting Actor nomination but I feel it was righteously given to John Hawkes for his great work in "Winter's Bone." It's also nice to see Jacki Weaver (Animal Kingdom) get nominated even though that was definitely expected. Gasland received a Best Documentary nod and I'm extremely happy for that film. So, hopefully this year's Oscars will bring some surprises. It'd be nice to see Colin Firth not win and maybe someone other than Natalie Portman will win. Highly doubtful, but a man can hope can't he? The Oscars air live on ABC, Sunday, February 27th. Red carpet begin at 5:30pm central time and the actual award ceremony begins at 7:00pm central time. Anne Hathaway and James Franco are handling hosting duties.
