Oscar Nominations...No Big Surprises

The nominations for the Oscars were announced this morning. Nothing too surprising.  True Grit was nominated for 10 after it was left out all together from the Golden Globes and The King's Speech lead the nominations with 12.

My husband was not nominated for best actor, rightfully so....sorry babe. BUT The Fighter was nominated for Best Picture in which is was a producer so he still got named in the role call.  Below are the nominations in the bigger categories with my picks in bold (picks being what I would LIKE to win...not necessarily my predictions):

BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS
Amy Adams, The Fighter
Helena Bonham Carter, The King’s Speech
Melissa Leo, The Fighter
Hailee Steinfeld, True Grit
Jacki Weaver, Animal Kingdom

BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR
Christian Bale, The Fighter
John Hawkes, Winter’s Bone
Jeremy Renner, The Town
Mark Ruffalo, The Kids Are All Right
Geoffrey Rush, The King’s Speech

BEST ACTRESS
Annette Bening, The Kids Are All Right
Nicole Kidman, Rabbit Hole
Jennifer Lawrence, Winter’s Bone
Natalie Portman, Black Swan
Michelle Williams, Blue Valentine

BEST ACTOR
Javier Bardem, Biutiful (completely in Spanish)
Jeff Bridges, True Grit
Jesse Eisenberg, The Social Network
Colin Firth, The King’s Speech
James Franco, 127 Hours (HAWT)
(sad that Ryan Gosling wasn't nominated. Tear.) 


BEST DIRECTOR
Darren Aronofsky, Black Swan
Joel and Ethan Coen, True Grit
David Fincher, The Social Network
Tom Hooper, The King’s Speech
David O. Russell, The Fighter
(people are going ape shit about Christopher Nolan being left out for Inception)


BEST PICTURE
127 Hours
Black Swan
The Fighter
Inception
The Kids Are All Right
The King’s Speech
The Social Network
Toy Story 3
True Grit
Winter’s Bone
(Obviously I would love for my husband to win an Oscar.)

And those are the nominees...pretty much the same as SAG and the GG with a few revisions. The Tourist was not nominated...so I am a happy lady.

Tune into the Oscars on February 27 (my birthday, in case you were wondering) at 6:00PM.

XOXO
Jes...
