77th Annual Oscar Nominations Announced

This morning in Hollywood the list of nominees for the 77th Annual
Academy Awards was announced. Unlike the Golden Globes, there seems to
be a dominate picture that is nomintated, The Aviator, with 11
nominations. The question remains though will this be the big winner
this year? As for missing films there seems to be a lack of variety
when it comes to the sound categories and unlike previous years most of
the nominees seem to be animated films not big action films. Also, it
is nice to announce that Fahrenheit 9/11 was snubbed by the academy
with no nominations…maybe there is justice in this world.

Make sure you keep an eye out for our 2nd annual Oscar Contest. It will
come out sometime this weekend and it will give you a chance to pick
your winners and win prizes.

Without further ado, here are the nominees.
