A few interesting notes: “The King’s Speech” tops the nomination count, followed in second by “True Grit” and a tie for third between “Inception” and “The Social Network.” This is only the third time in Oscar history that an animated film has been nominated for Best Picture (the others were “Beauty and the Beast” and “Up”.) This year is the first time in Oscar history that a Best Actor nominee was nominated for a film in which the spoken language was entirely Spanish. The full list of nominees is here.
So tell us in the comments section- who do you want to win? Any movies or actors you think Oscar missed? What was your favorite movie of 2010? And be sure to share this article with friends (using links above) so they can join in the discussion.
See you on Oscar night! (Watching from home in pj’s with popcorn, of course.)
