|Home: BigScreen Journal - 2011 Academy Award Nominations - By Category|
The nominations for the 83rd Academy Awards were announced this morning, January 25, 2011 by Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences President Tom Sherak and 2009 Oscar® winner Mo'Nique. The live television broadcast announced nominations in 10 of the 24 categories.
Academy members from each of the branches vote to determine the nominees in their respective categories – actors nominate actors, film editors nominate film editors, etc. In the Animated Feature Film and Foreign Language Film categories, nominations are selected by vote of multi-branch screening committees.
All voting members are eligible to select the Best Picture nominees. This is the second year to have 10 nominees instead of the five that were nominated previous to 2009.
The Academy Awards Ceremony will be held on Sunday, February 27, 2011, at the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, California. The event will be broadcast live on ABC beginning at 5pm PT/8pm ET. The ceremony will be hosted this year by Anne Hathaway and James Franco.
Many of the nominated movies are still in theaters, or will be making a return visit as a result of being nominated, so it's not too late to see them for yourself!
