Oscars posterThe 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!

This year's Academy offers no surprises. Of the ten movies that werte nominated, nine of the ten movies I have seen. Two of them, "Inception" and "The Kids are All Right," I have seen twice. Only "127 Hours," I have yet to see. Of the nine movies that I did see, "The Fighter" is the least favorite. I t was overhye. I like the movie, but I didn't think it was a great film. The only reaqson nwhy I like the movie is the performance of Amy Adams. She's the reason why I like the movie in the first place. I nthink "Inception" will take most of the technical awards. I think that "The King's speech" will get the major awards including best picture. Natalie Portman will walk away with best actress. I'll see the Academy Awards on Feb. 27th.

I think True Grit will get Best Picture. The Academy seems to like the Coen Brothers, and it got some really good reviews from people who didn't think they would like it.

It's a bit of a slap in Christopher Nolan's face to pass him over for Best Director for Inception, but maybe they'll make up for it by giving him the Oscar for Visual Effects. The story was too confusing and too much of a self-referential puzzle for it to get it for the screenplay.

The Kings Speech was very good! Geoffrey Rush should get the Oscar for his role, and I think it has a good chance at Best Screenplay as well.
