Academy Award Nominations Announced

Hey folks. The Academy Awards nominees have been announced.

Quick thoughts:

  • 9 films are competing for best picture 
  • Hugo got the most nominations (11)
  • None of the five nominees for best animated film were made by Pixar
  • I could be wrong, but I think all but one of the nominated directors have been nominated at least once before (Michel Hazanavicius, The Artist).
  • Melissa McCarthy, Jonah Hill, and Rooney Mara were all nominated for acting awards.
  • Surprise! Meryl Streep got another nomination. I've lost count, but I think that makes 16 total nominations.
The Oscar contest for the blog will be online soon. The awards will be held Sunday, Feb 26th.
