The 2010 Oscar nominations are out and the lucky chosen ones are eager to say thanks. Gabourey Sidibe couldn't contain her excitement, while Sandra Bullock kept her sense of humor and grace. Christoph Waltz said he's "over the moon" and Anna Kendrick twittered her reaction since she was literally speechless. See what the other nominees had to say!
What do Queen Victoria, the Italian prime minister, and time travelers have in common? They're all the inspiration behind this year's achievement in makeup category for the 2010 Oscars, for which the nominees were announced this morning. I'm always a sucker for the best actress, picture, and costume design categories, but thanks to the Bella side of me, it's this little-discussed category that captures my attention. This year's trio of prospects includes Star Trek, the story of James T. Kirk's younger years; The Young Victoria, a chronicle of Queen Victoria's romance; and Il Divo, the tale of the current prime minister of Italy. Which one would you like to see take home the prized statue?
Anne Hathaway joined Academy President Tom Sherak this morning in LA to announce the nominees for this year's Oscars. As expected, there was lots of love for Avatar — the film is up in a total of nine categories, as is The Hurt Locker, including Best Picture and Best Director nominations for both James Cameron and Kathryn Bigelow. This is the first year with 10 films in the running for Best Picture, and The Blind Side scored a spot next to films like Up, Inglourious Basterds, and District 9.
The acting nods included many of the award season favorites so far with nominations for George Clooney and the ladies of Up in the Air, Anna Kendrick and Vera Farmiga. Both Gabourey Sibide and Mo'Nique were recognized for Precious, while Maggie Gyllenhaal scored a Best Supporting Actress nod for Crazy Heart and Matt Damon was honored for his role in Invictus with a Best Supporting Actor nomination.
