82nd Oscar Nominees Have Been Announced

There were few surprises this morning for the majority of the categories. However, with the Academy making 10 films eligible for BEST PICTURE there were going to be a few. Like, UP squeezing into both BEST PICTURE and BEST ANIMATED FILM. UP is the first animated feature since BEAUTY AND THE BEAST to appear in that category.

The most shocking nomination for BEST PICTURE for me was DISTRICT 9. A well deserved nomination in my opinion.

Check out the full list and post your thoughts below.
