The 2011 Oscar Nominations were announced early this morning, and all the usual suspects are here. The Fighter, The King’s Speech, The Social Network and True Grit lead the nominations. There were a few surprise snubs though, if you ask me. Christopher Nolan was shut out of the best director Oscar – even though Inception was nominated for best screenplay and best picture. For some of the actors – I was surprised to see Ryan Gosling shut out for his performance in ‘Blue Valentine’. Also surprised Julianne Moore’s not on here for ‘The Kids Are Alright’.

Other than the snubs – I think the Oscars got it right! These were all (mostly) great picks!

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science’s rewarded The King’s Speech with 12 nominations to make it the dominant player at the 83rd annual Academy Awards. True Grit, set on the edge of the American frontier in the 19th century, placed second with ten nominations. And the dreamy thriller Inception and the computer-savvy The Social Network followed close behind with eight nominations each
