83rd Academy Awards Winners


The 83rd Academy Awards nominations have just been announced! "The King's Speech" and "True Grit" appears to be the judging panel's favourite with 12 and 10 nominations respectively. "The Social Network" and "Inception" both received 8 nods each with "The Fighter" awarded 7. It is probably agreeable that some of the nominations have been better than expected while a few surprises have also stunned fans alike. Christopher Nolan's nomination hopes in the Directing category were dashed as the Coens were favoured instead. I was also personally expecting a nomination for Danny Boyle with his work in "127 Hours", but it wasn't meant to be.

  1. The King's Speech getting all the love! I would have liked to see Nolan get a nod for Best Director. He is supremely talented and very deserving.

  3. have to agree with Mattys comment, I think Nolan desrves a nod for best director, and wasn't surprised to see King Speech dominate, very predictable.
