King Rules 2011 Oscar Nominations

Articles - Acting

The nominees for the 83rd Annual Academy Awards were announced this morning—shortly thereafter followed the inevitable discussion of who was unjustly snubbed. Among those who didn’t receive their expected nominations are Andrew Garfield (The Social Network), Mark Wahlberg (The Fighter) and Mila Kunis (Black Swan). Also snubbed was Christopher Nolan, who received nominations for writing and co-producing Inception, but not for directing it. He also missed out on a directing nod for 2008’s The Dark Knight; did he kick Academy President Tom Sherak’s dog or something?

The film to receive the most nominations was The King’s Speech; it grabbed 12 nominations, including ones for Colin Firth (Best Actor), Tom Hooper (Best Director) and David Seidler (Best Original Screenplay), as well as one for Best Movie. Other potential big winners include True Grit (10 nominations), The Social Network (eight nominations) and Inception (eight nominations).

The 83rd Annual Academy Awards will take place on Sunday, February 27th at 8 p.m. For more information visit oscar.go.com.
