Ladies and Gentlemen, Your Oscar Nominees

Hollywood types aren’t known for being early risers, but once a year the film community wipes the sleep out of its eyes and tunes into the Oscar nomination announcements—and then, we imagine, goes straight back to bed. At 8:30 a.m. EST—keep in mind, that’s 5:30 a.m. in Hollywood and 6:30 for all the starlets at Sundance—Academy president Tom Schurr took the stage with Mo’nique to announce this year’s nominees. There were a few disappointments: Blue Valentine was basically shut out, and we had so hoped Mike Leigh’s lovely Another Year might pull through with a nomination for something more than just Original Screenplay. But there were some pleasant surprises, as well: Winter’s Bone and The Kids Are All Right are both up for some high-profile acting awards as well as Best Picture. Here’s the complete list, with links to Interview‘s past coverage.
