The 82nd Annual Academy Awards Nominations

The complete list of nominations for the 82nd Annual Academy Awards have been announced today (oscars.com). The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences unveiled their nominees this morning in the wee hours. It was a great “Christmas” present to wake up to read. This is the first year since they have had 10 nominees for best picture since 1943.  Many obvious nominations, but many surprises that make me happy.

The 82nd Academy Awards will take place on Sunday, March 7th at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood with a live telecast airing on ABC starting at 8PM (EST) / 5PM (PST) and hosted by Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin.

Read on for the full list of 2010 nominees.
