The Oscar Nominations Have Been Announced!

Oscarnoms11

It’s that time of year again and the Oscar race has officially commenced! This morning, a little after 530 am PST (so early for those creative Californian types!) the nominations were announced for the 2011 Academy Awards. While most of the nominated were to be expected, I was surprised to find Hailee Steinfeld nominated for her role in True Grit and a little sad to see Mark Whalberg not nominated for The Fighter. That being said, Melissa Leo, who is nominated for best supporting actress for The Fighter, did comment that every nomination for The Fighter is a nomination and testament to Mark Whalberg.

Here are the nominations:
