83rd Academy Awards Nominations Announced

Posted by Grey Wednesday, January 26, 2011

The quest for the little gold man officially kicks off with the official announcement of the nomination list of the 83rd Academy Awards.

Yes, the list is out, and prepare to be thrilled, overjoyed, and saddened by it. Film critic darling, The King's Speech, predictably lead the list with twelve nominations, followed closely by the Coen brothers's True Grit grabbing ten. Inception and The Social Network have a tie at the third spot with eight nominations each.

While we are pleasantly surprised that Christopher Nolan's Sci-Fi magnum opus, Inception, managed to wow the panel (perhaps as a belated compensation following the much-berated snubbing of The Dark Knight in 2008), It is somewhat disappointing for Nolan to missed out on the Best Director nomination. However, the most disappointing item on the list would be for Tron: Legacy to not getting the Oscar nod for their awe-inspiring special effects for the Best Visual Effects category, and Daft Punk, for their brilliant score for Best Original Score.

Anyway, here's the complete nomination list, courtesy of the Associated Press:
