Well, both Mila Kunis and Barbara Hershey were snubbed for their work in Black Swan, and Christopher Nolan was nixed from the Best Director category for Inception at this morning's Academy Award nominations announcement. Other than that, the usual suspects were richly rewarded for their work. The King's Speech, a film about speech therapy and Britishness, received 12 nominations, including thespian honors for Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter and Geoffrey Rush.
Best Picture contenders are Black Swan, The Fighter, Inception, The Kids Are All Right, The King's Speech, 127 Hours, The Social Network, Toy Story 3, True Grit, and Winter's Bone.
Black Swan, perhaps one the greatest movies ever made in the history of the universe from here until the end of time, came in with a scant 5 nominations, while straight male camp flicks True Grit and The Fighter (really, more yarns about cowboys and boxers?) received 10 and 7, respectively. Bah.
Any films you feel got the cold shoulder this year from the Academy? Let us know in the comments.
