The Oscars: 83rd Academy Award Nominations [Updated]

Jan 25, 2011 by Rob Keyes 

The official nominations are in for the Oscars. Watch the livestream replay and check out the full list of nominations to see who got the snub this year.

The Oscars: 83rd Academy Award Nominations

This morning, Tuesday January 25th, the official nominations for the 83rd Academy Awards are to be announced live. The 2011 Oscar presentation will take place Sunday, February 27, 2011, hosted by none other than two of the year’s most prolific young stars in James Franco (127 Hours) and Anne Hathaway (Love and Other Drugs).

While last year saw the expansion of the contentious Best Picture category grow to 10 nominees after a year of major snubs, to help bring in mainstream viewership and ratings, this Oscar presentation sees its big change with the Special Effects category expanding from three to five nods.

Will Jeff Bridges get his sixth Oscar nomination after winning his first with Crazy Heart last year? Will animated films take up one, two or more spots of the Best Picture category? Will The Tourist get some nominations after some disputable nods at the Golden Globes?

This year’s presenters will be headlined by Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges, Sandra Bullock, Marisa Tomei and Oprah Winfrey - Here’s the nomination livestream and the full list of nominees:

Some interesting notes: Three of the five leading actor nominations are for people playing real people. The Town was snubbed from a spot amongst the 10 Best Picture nominees and Daft Punk got no love for their work on TRON: Legacy. The TRON sequel’s special effects were somehow beat out by Iron Man 2 and Christopher Nolan’s directorial feat with Inception was also not recognized. Mark Wahlberg didn’t get an acting nod, but did get nominated as one of the producers on The Fighter, while the Coens get nominated for three nominations.

The King’s Speech leads the pack with 12 nominations, True Grit gets 10 and The Fighter nabs 7. Any surprise nominations or omissions? Let the predictions and Oscar pools begin! Head to the official Oscars site for more.
