This morning, nominations for the 83rd Academy Awards were announced by AMPAS president Tom Sherak and 2009 Oscar® winner Mo’Nique. The two announced nominees in ten major categories; the complete list of nominees was distributed to the media and made available at the official Academy Awards website, www.oscar.com.
The King’s Speech lead the pack with 12 noms, followed by the Coen bros. True Grit remake, which garnered 10 nominations. The Social Network and Inception tied for 8 nods each, but surprisingly, Inception director Christopher Nolan did not get a Best Director nomination. (He did get an Original Screenplay nom, however.) Also shockingly snubbed was Andrew Garfield for his emotional portrayal of Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin in The Social Network.
