Announcing the 2011 Oscar Nominations: The King's Speech Takes the Lead

The Oscar nominations are here! This morning, actress Mo'nique joined Academy president Tom Sherak to reveal this year's Oscar nominees in LA. There were a lot of nominees that were expected, but also a few surprises! The King's Speech and The Social Network have been dominating award season, and it's no different for the Academy Awards, but plenty of other films received lots of love this morning, like Winter's Bone, True Grit, and Toy Story 3, which all made it into the 10-film best picture category.

Naturally, not everyone can get a nomination, so there were a few of my favorites shut out (like Ryan Gosling and Andrew Garfield). In any case, you can watch the live announcements right now, and to see the full list, just

Javier and Colin should be tied for best actor, seriously.Thanks god Mila wasn't nominated, poor performance from her.Inception ought to win Best Picture but I completely understand the lack of noms for Leo. Definately an ensamble of good actors.

I completely agree with Kiki tee. Inception is visually stunning, but highly overrated...

I also found Inception to be the most irritatingly over-rated movie I've ever seen. The plot was full of holes, the script was pure lousy and the characters were completely one dimensional. It was visually stunning, so it deserves a Best Director nomination more than it deserves a Best Picture nomination. I can't believe Blue Valentine only got one nomination, although thoroughly deserved, I think it rates as a definite Best Picture contender.

I would take out The Kids are Alright (I only know one person who saw it and she said it was terrible) and Inception (the most over-rated lousy movie I have ever seen) and put in The Town and Buried. When the lights came on in the movie theatre at the end of Buried, the whole audience just sat there with there mouths open. It was unbelievable! And the Town was just awesome. You mean to tell me it was more difficult to direct The Kids are Alright, than the theft and chase scenes in The Town.

No cinematography nod for I Am Love? That movie was so beautiful to watch, like being wrapped in a silk dress. I'm really surprised!

Yay! I was rooting for The Kings Speech from the beginning, there's some brilliant acting in there - and not just from Colin Firth. Otherwise I was hoping to see The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo in the foreign film category or Noomi Rapace for best actress, but one can't have everything.. I also find it interesting to see Inception nominatied for best film, while the actors from this movie didn't get any nominations themselves. Anyway, I'm really interested to see who the winners are. There were some really good movies in the 2010 and I honestly can't say who will win.
